American Eurocopter was one of 25 to earn the honor, which was open to all U.S.-based companies.  MVEs are selected based on surveys in which employers outline their recruiting, training and retention plans that best serve military service members and veterans.  2010 winners range from small businesses to Fortune 500 enterprises and represent various sectors of the economy.

American Eurocopter has also been recognized in recent weeks as a G.I. Jobs 2010 Top 100 Military Friendly Employer® and a nominee for the U.S. Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award.

“Our philosophy has always been to recruit the best of the best and we feel that the men and women who defend our country bring the necessary skills that will help our company achieve its goals now and in the future,” said Marc Paganini, President and CEO American Eurocopter. “We are honored to once again be recognized.”

Civilianjobs.com connects service members with civilian careers by providing a job board and job fairs as well as distributing a bimonthly publication, Civilian Job News, to military bases. The company names MVEs in the month of May in honor of Armed Forces Day, celebrated this year on May 15.

“We’re pleased to be known as a Most Valuable Employer,” says Earl Walker, Senior Director, Site General Manager for American Eurocopter’s Columbus, MS, facility.  “Half of our personnel are veterans or National Guard or Reserves members.  We benefit from the leadership, commitment and know-how veterans bring to American Eurocopter, and we are committed to continuing our efforts for military service members and veterans.”
