Our Veterans

In 2014, we formed the Athene Military Veterans Organization (AMVO) to help focus our company's efforts around hiring veterans, establishing intra-company and intercompany veteran networks, and collaborating with community outreach organizations serving military veterans, their dependents, and active National Guard and Reservists currently employed at Athene. The AMVO is a network of Athene employees who've served in the military, have friends and/or family in the military, or are just passionate about supporting those who have served. We are honored to be recognized as an award-winning employer for veterans.
