Meet Our Veterans
Let us introduce ourselves.
"Take your skills you learned in the Military and be a great team player at Iron Mountain, set the example of working with others, coaching and mentoring. Show your leadership skills by taking the lead on projects, expanding your responsibility and always doing more than what is asked. Remember that you have done something that most Americans haven’t, you served, be proud of that accomplishment, and tell others about your experience and encourage them to follow your path. I am honored to work with you and I thank you for your service."

About Raymond Fox
As the Executive Vice President and Chief Risk Officer, Raymond C. Fox is responsible for the management, governance, and assessment and accountability for risk across Iron Mountain. He also has oversight of the Board Risk & Safety Committee, which oversees our Enterprise Risk Management framework.
"Be a positive emissary for the Military…don’t be the stereotypical rigid, over-formal, intense Veteran; absorb your new culture and prove that Veteran skillsets/experience are invaluable. There is no more ‘wearing your resume’ on your uniform…there’s no rank, badges or medals in the civilian sector, so you have to continually build and refine your personal brand. My third piece of advice is network, network, network...connecting with people is the real key to opening doors of opportunity. Engage with people at all levels. Furthermore, stay relevant…subscribe to a professional magazine/newsletter related to your new career, earn a new certification, go back to school."

About Brian Cooper
My current role at Iron Mountain is the Operations Manager for the Philadelphia market; where I manage three supervisors, 40+ non-exempt employees and oversee 12 Record Centers. I earned my BS in Electrical & Computer Engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology, my MBA from Touro University and am currently All-But-Dissertation in my PhD in Business Administration & Marketing from Trident University. I joined the US Air Force in 2003 through AFROTC and then transitioned to the Air National Guard in 2013, where my current duty is the Commander of the 177 AMXS, leading 220+ Airmen and manage $650M+ worth of F-16 aircraft and support equipment/facilities.
"I advise seeking a corporate team that values and respects the skills, work ethic, teamwork and leadership learned. The unique aptitude a veteran possesses through military training, leadership, and service to country is rare and valuable in a corporate infrastructure. Corporate jobs may or may not parallel exactly with the military training received, but the agility and characteristics learned to manage adversity will classify a veteran above non-military candidates. The culture and structure at Iron Mountain makes for an easy transition from the military. Influence the corporate teams you join by relating your military experience. This is sure to improve Iron Mountain's culture and team."

About Jeff Enck
Jeff Enck is the VP of Operations for Secure Destruction, responsible for all of the Iron Mountain Shred business in North America. With over 2k employees on our team, I am responsible for employee culture, operations, and overall success of the Shred Team as it supports the Iron Mountain North America Records and Information Management.
"The biggest hurdle to me between military and civilian life is learning more patience and that not everything has to be rigid in structure. Structure is something most military are ingrained with, but in the civilian world you may need to create your own type structure for success in your career and with your family, which can be very different than military life. Be patient with yourself and enjoy your civilian life."

About Katie Carver
The training I received as a US Marine was life changing for me at 18 years old. My training/experience taught me leadership, teamwork, loyalty, dependability, resilience and so many things I use today in leading my team at Iron Mountain. The technology experience I gained was also very helpful in landing my first job outside the Service, which was a LAN Administrator.
