With Memorial Day just around the corner, Continuum's Director, Digital Media, Scott Glidden took some time to sit down with Continuum Veterans Foundation (CVF) Director, William McHale. The CVF was established to provide financial support to local and national charities that focus on helping veterans find jobs in IT.
McHale attended the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) at Villanova University and then served aboard the USS Vega (AF-59) as a communications officer off the coast of Vietnam. He later served on Guam as the Officer-in-Charge of the Autodin Switching Center and was honorably discharged in November 1974.
In 1990, McHale began running software companies and led DSET Corporation as CEO through an IPO in 1998. He has been the CEO of two software companies in Europe and is currently devoting his efforts to work on board of director roles, helping CEOs and their management teams to deal with the various challenges of growth in their businesses.
Scott and Bill discuss what led to Bill's decision to join the board of the CVF, the impact that the foundation has made, the Continuum partners and organizations that have gotten involved in the foundation, and much more!
