Casey McEuin is a proud husband, father of four, an unconventional leader, executive leadership coach, adventurer, prolific networker, keynote and motivational speaker, talent acquisition leader and a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion champion. Like so many of our veterans, McEuin is focused on direction, motivating his team, a sense mission, purpose, and making an impact in our communities, companies, and country. He currently directs his keen sense of commitment to the worthy endeavor of pinpointing the intersectionality between business talent needs and the skills, training, and rich character of our transitioning veterans.
At the age of 25, McEuin was an aspiring Olympic athlete and a fierce competitor on the Army’s Tae Kwon Do team. Eight years later he earned the Purple Heart when he was critically injured in Afghanistan. Discharged from the military after his recovery, three years later, he worked to assimilate into a society that was unable to understand the full extent of what a veteran of 17 years had to offer the workforce.
Galvanized by his experiences, McEuin dedicated himself to helping veterans’ transition more effectively into the civilian workforce, and improve the overall quality of life for veterans. He fulfills this mission by founding a nonprofit that were dedicated to helping veterans, and by setting the example for other veterans by continuing his education, and personal and professional development. Casey was honored by President Barack Obama in April of 2016 for his dedicated service to the veteran community by helping over 17K veterans find meaningful employment.
When COVID-19 struck the United States, Casey made the decision to step away from the nonprofit world and jump into a thriving market with Amazon. Casey led the talent team for Amazon’s Global Delivery Services, and was a board member on many of Amazon’s resource groups.
Casey holds a Master of Social Work with an emphasis on Diversity, Community Organizations, Policy, and Advocacy from the University of Southern California where he uses that knowledge to further the advocacy for diverse groups in corporate America. Through his experience helping others, Casey was a founding member of the Mental Health and Wellness resource group at Amazon, helping grow the group to over 2,000 members in the first 45 days of its existence.
