Colonel (Retired) Gregory Gadson has been appointed to the MVPVets Board of Directors. MVPVets is a nonprofit that assists and prepares transitioning veterans for employment in medical device and life science companies.
Gadson was also recently named to the Board of Directors of the Gary Sinise Foundation. Gadson has been serving as the Ambassador for the Gary Sinise Foundation since 2015.
Greg served in every major conflict of the past two decades. In 2007, during combat operations in Iraq an improvised explosive device (IED) cost him both legs above the knees and normal use of his right arm and hand. Since his injury, he has served as Director of the United States Army Wounded Warrior Program and founded a management consulting business, Patriot Strategies, LLC. Gadson's experience as a wounded warrior that successfully transitioned back into the civilian workforce will serve as a great resource for fellow wounded veteran MVPVets members who face unique challenges.
“I am excited to be a part of an organization that is adapting its programs virtually to meet the needs of transitioning service members. The Academy and MedTech Conference will help MVPVets in its mission to connect military veterans with engaged mentors and careers in the medical device and life science industries,” said Gadson.
