Hennessey Assumes Chair of Colorado After Serving Three Years as Chair of Iowa
WASHINGTON, DC, October 5, 2021 — Vita Inclinata (Vita), developer and producer of helicopter and crane load stabilization and precision hardware, today announced the ESGR committee, a Department of Defense program, selected Mark Hennessey as the new ESGR Chair for Colorado. With more than one-third of the United States’ military force serving in the Guard or Reserve, Hennessey will have a direct impact on these men and women, and their civilian employers. He joins 53 other chairs who oversee the ESGR mission in the 50 states, three territories, and the District of Columbia.
ESGR develops and promotes supportive work environments for service members in the National Guard and Reserve through outreach, recognition, and educational opportunities that increase awareness of applicable laws.
Colorado Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (COESGR) is a Department of Defense office, led and operated by dedicated volunteers and staff. Their mission is to gain and maintain employer support for Guard and Reserve service by recognizing outstanding support, increasing awareness of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA), resolving conflicts through mediation, and developing initiatives to increase employment opportunities for military service members and veterans.
“I have a deep respect for our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, Coast Guard, and Guardians in our Guard and Reserve units,” Hennessey said. “Vita’s mission is building technology that helps ensure their safe return home and my position as ESGR Chair of Colorado is to make sure they don’t have to worry about their civilian job while they are on duty.”
The State Chair has a three-year term of service, renewable one time. More information about ESGR employer outreach programs and volunteer opportunities is available at www.esgr.mil.
