“I learned about outplacement when I was laid off myself from Hughes Aircraft company. So when given the opportunity to actually work in outplacement industry in 1999, I jumped at the chance. I knew what it was like to be on the receiving end of job loss and how helping someone through one of the three most difficult times in a person’s life appealed to me. Now after my decade at Challenger, Gray & Christmas, I’ve truly found my mission in life.” – Pete Tzavalas
