Contract Professionals, Inc. (CPI) Meets With Top (Former) Military Commanders

To Discuss Veteran Hiring Initiatives


June 3, 2016 - Waterford, MI – James Cowper, President, CPI, Jay Vorobel, Vice President, Eastern Region, CPI and Richard Ross, Director of Business Development, CPI, Command Sergeant Major (retired) U.S. Army, met with General Funk (retired), General Thurman (retired) and General Jones (retired) on May 18, 2016 at Fort Hood to discuss how CPI can expand their veteran hiring initiative and employ additional transitioning soldiers and veterans.


“CPI has been working with the transition center at Fort Hood and various other installations to help out-processing military personnel transition into the civilian workforce for more than 2 decades,” said Vorobel. “We are interested in growing and expanding this program, standardizing our processes, and identifying additional avenues to reach more veterans.”


Ross created this opportunity to bring CPI together with key influencers at Fort Hood. “We want to develop a smooth employment path for our out-processing military personnel and veterans,” said Ross. “CPI has been employing veterans for decades. We have the skills and expertise necessary to assist our service men and women as they transition out of the military.”

A veteran owned company, CPI has been putting veterans to work for more than 34 years. As CPI continues to grow as a result of their veteran certifications from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VOSB) and the National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC), CPI plans to double in size within the next three years. Employing several hundred veterans a year, the goal is to increase that number by at least a third, by the end 2017.

CPI actively works to access out-processing military personnel and veterans by conducting onsite and virtual recruitment programs through the Military’s Transition Assistance Program (TAP).
