Atlantic Broadband Shows Support for Veterans at Annual Nasdaq Event

Atlantic Broadband President & CEO joins business executives for leadership symposium and ringing of Nasdaq opening bell


QUINCY, Mass., November 12, 2018 – Richard J. Shea, President and CEO of Atlantic Broadband, joined executives from more than 50 companies today at the Nasdaq Marketsite in Times Square, New York City, to honor U.S. veterans by ringing the Nasdaq opening bell.

The ceremony was part of an annual Veterans Day event sponsored by the Thayer Leader Development Group at West Point (TLDG). Now in its sixth year, the event recognizes public and private companies that have made an impact supporting active duty military members, veterans, and their families. 

The event also featured roundtable discussion about how today’s executives can develop the next generation of America's business leaders through veterans support.

Shea, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, served as an officer in the army overseas and in the United States before achieving the rank of Captain.

“It is good to pause each year to reflect on the contribution made by our military personnel in their service to our country, as well as the substantial sacrifices our veterans and families have made in carrying out that service,” said Shea. “Still, our support for veterans cannot merely be one of thanks and appreciation, but finding concrete ways to support veterans in our business communities, including bringing their talents to our workplaces.”
