West Hosts Soldiers to Summits’ Pedro Sotelo

West is proud to host Pedro Sotelo and Nick Colgin from Soldiers to Summits at our Exton Headquarters. Pedro spoke during the West Employee Forum about his military experience, the difficulties he faced returning to civilian life and how Soldiers to Summits helped him break down the barriers and live a full life once again.

Said CEO Don Morel, “Of all the speakers we’ve had at West, Pedro has been one of the best.  It was a remarkable speech that resonated with the West team. Pedro did an outstanding job with a  story that touched on many levels and translated to personal and business goals.  We’re pleased to be  a part of Soldiers to Summits and appreciate that Pedro and Nick were able to join us.”

“We always ask, who’s going to support me and how can we get something done,” said Pedro. “Employees at places like West offer that support and we’re pleased and proud to have it.”

West supports veterans through a variety of philanthropic programs as well as our Ties to Stripes hiring program.
