Avis Budget Group Inc. has earned the 2017 Military Friendly Employer designation from Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse.

"Support for our military is part of the very fabric of our company," said Larry De Shon, chief executive officer, Avis Budget Group. "Our founder, Warren Avis, was a fighter pilot with the Army Air Corps during World War II, and we proudly continue to emphasize the recruitment and employment of military talent. We are honored to be recognized for our efforts."

Companies competing for the Military Friendly Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media's proprietary survey.

As an honoree, Avis Budget Group will be showcased, along with other 2017 Military Friendly Employers, in the December edition of G.I. Jobs magazine and online at MilitaryFriendly.com.

"Companies that have earned the 2017 Military Friendly Employer designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans, and spouses," said Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and chief product officer at Victory Media. "Our Military Friendly Employers have moved beyond answering ‘why hire military?' They are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly schools to translate military competencies into civilian careers."
