Our tradition of hiring and supporting the military community began with our founder, World War II U.S. Navy veteran Ralph Roberts, and it continues today. We work to hire members of the military community at all levels across our organization. Leigh Branston, a network maintenance manager in New Mexico, is one of our military hires locally.

Whether you’re a member of the military community beginning your civilian career, a veteran entrepreneur accelerating your business, or an organization working on behalf of local military initiatives, we thank all members of the military community for your dedication and service.
At Comcast, hiring and supporting our military members and their families is critical to the progress of our company and the communities we serve. Connecting our communities is at the heart of what we do, and is a value and work ethic our military families bring to our company.
“We recognize the incredible talent our military community brings to any company – they are problem solvers, they are inventive, they come up with solutions to diverse problems in high stress situations. Working with the military community is part of our DNA. Service matters – country, community and customers,” said U.S. Army Brig. Gen. (Ret.) Carol Eggert, Comcast NBCUniversal Senior Vice President of Military and Veteran Affairs.
