HOUSTON, Jan. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Men’s Wearhouse, the renowned specialty retailer of menswear and rental products in the U.S. and an avid supporter of military Veterans causes, is proud to announce the appointment of Shane Smith to the Board of Directors at Hire Heroes USA, a nonprofit organization that empowers U.S. military members, Veterans, and their spouses to succeed in the civilian workforce.
“Shane Smith’s appointment to our Board marks a significant milestone in our journey to empower Veterans and their families. His professional experience and commitment to community service perfectly align with our mission at Hire Heroes USA. We are excited about the new perspectives and insights he will bring, enhancing our efforts to support those who have served our country,” said Andrew Sandoe, CEO of Hire Heroes USA.
Smith serves as the Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for Tailored Brands (parent Company of Men’s Wearhouse), following his previous leadership roles at The Coca-Cola Company and the Harland Company. He has served on multiple boards of directors and is active with HR executive forums. Smith is committed to acting in service of others and is a devoted volunteer and supporter of the community. He also serves as an executive sponsor of the Tailored Brands Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council.
“I am honored to join the Board at Hire Heroes USA as they continue their impactful work to support U.S. military members, Veterans, and their families,” said Smith. “It has been a pleasure to work with the Hire Heroes USA team across our Company’s partnership, and see firsthand the positive impact they have on Veterans’ lives. I am truly appreciative of the opportunity to further support their work in this new capacity.”
This appointment follows Men’s Wearhouse’s recent contribution of $6.5 million to Veteran organizations in support of individuals and families who have served our country, as part of the retailer’s 2023 “Threads of Valor” campaign. The contribution included a continuation of the brand’s six-year partnership with Hire Heroes USA, becoming the first-ever sponsor of Hire Heroes USA’s Junior Enlisted Program (JREL). Since the program commenced in January 2023, it has served more than 3,600 junior enlisted clients and confirmed 2000 hires.
Shane’s prior experience in supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives will be invaluable in enhancing Hire Heroes USA’s programs. His dedication to community service positions him as a key asset in advancing the organization’s outreach and impact.
