— Rear Admiral David W. Titley speaks at Fab 8.
On April 26, Rear Admiral David W. Titley, assistant deputy chief of Naval operations for information dominance, visited GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ Fab 8 to tour the facility and learn more about the Fab’s economic impact in the region and the company’s efforts to hire U.S. military veterans; to date, GF has hired approximately 100 veterans to work at Fab 8.
Rear Admiral Titley’s visit was part of the U.S. Navy’s 50/50 Program, an outreach effort which features 50 senior Navy leaders in 50 cities throughout the country. His two-day visit to the Capital Region included visits with corporate executives, community leaders, government officials, local universities and community colleges, and members of the media to discuss the Navy’s mission, capabilities and relevance to national security and the impacts to the Capital Region.
Rear Admiral Titley met with GF executives to discuss the company’s hiring initiatives for U.S. military veterans. The company is working to recruit more military veterans at Fab 8, working closely with the NYSDOL and participating in veteran specific job fairs at Fort Drum and the NYSDOL Veterans Career event.
