Bozzuto Joins Military Spouse Employment Partnership

GREENBELT, MD - At a signing ceremony held last week at the Pentagon, The Bozzuto Group was officially inducted into the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), a targeted recruitment and employment solution that connects America's employers directly to military spouses to create meaningful, long-term employment opportunities.

The Bozzuto Group, a Greenbelt, MD-based real estate services company, was founded in 1988 by three partners, of which two are veterans – Chairman and CEO Tom Bozzuto and Vice Chairman John Slidell.

The MSEP provides job-seeking military spouses with a digital recruiting platform, offering direct access to vetted companies such as The Bozzuto Group. The partnership consists of Fortune 500 "PLUS" companies, which include small and large businesses, government agencies, and organizations across America. The MSEP, working with Hiring Our Heroes and the Joining Forces initiatives, is rapidly expanding the number of dedicated employers in its effort to help military families deal with unique challenges including frequent relocations and long separations.

"As a veteran-owned company, we realize the importance of playing our part to employ the families who have served our country, and consider it an honor to do so," said Kristin Reese, director of talent acquisition, The Bozzuto Group. "Supporting the military by joining the MSEP is yet another way we can support and thank service members and their spouses."

The Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) is a targeted recruitment and employment solution for spouses and companies that partners Fortune 500 Plus companies with all military services; provides human resources managers with recruitment solutions; prepares military spouses to be competitive, "job ready" applicants; and connects military spouses with employers seeking the essential 21st century workforce skills and attributes they possess.

Headquartered in the Washington, D.C. area, The Bozzuto Group is a diversified residential real estate company consisting of six integrated companies – Acquisitions, Construction, Development, Homebuilding, Land Development and Property Management – that together provide a broad range of real estate services throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. The company is committed to providing quality housing for individuals of all income levels, producing everything from luxury homes and apartments to affordable housing solutions.

Throughout The Bozzuto Group's more than 24-year history, the company has developed, acquired and built more than 35,000 homes and apartments, and the firm and its principals have been honored with numerous industry awards and accolades, including having been recognized by the NAHB as the nation's premier apartment development company, and twice as management company of the year.
