Columbia Advisory Group (CAG), a well-respected Information Technology (IT) consulting firm, successfully partnered with RecruitMilitary, a veteran-owned firm dedicated to helping military veterans achieve long term success though education, training and jobs. By assisting with the IT strategy and optimizing the management of RecruitMilitary’s technology functions including website, ecommerce engine and infrastructure, among others, CAG’s team of experts enables RecruitMilitary to focus on delivering excellent service and value to their clients.
As part of the buy-side IT due diligence, CAG recommended and developed a long-term IT optimization plan for RecruitMilitary, the leading online and digital solution for companies seeking to hire military veterans. Following completion of the successful assessment and acquisition of RecruitMilitary, the majority of IT operations were outsourced to CAG including improvement and maintenance of the company’s IT infrastructure and a core database of more than 726,000 veterans seeking employment.
“The CAG team did a great job of keeping our site and business up and running while improving our technical infrastructure. Keeping our data fresh, organized and secure is critical to serving the needs of companies and veterans; we count on CAG to do it right every time,” said Peter A. Gudmundsson, CEO of RecruitMilitary. “We have a sophisticated website that is the heart of our business. It is the engine for employers and military veterans to connect with one another. They rely on us for their livelihood, and we wouldn’t trust them to anyone other than CAG.”

We were very pleased to be selected to help them achieve greater success for the companies and veterans they serve,” said David McLaughlin, President and CEO of CAG. “We want to make it easy for our clients to understand and evaluate their IT options.
