Comcast NBC Universal
Dave Gaulin is the Director of Military and Veteran Affairs for Comcast NBCUniversal. In this role, he works collaboratively across Comcast NBCUniversal to provide operational leadership to all aspects of programs and employee engagement in the Military and Veteran community, including recruiting, hiring and building talent at all levels of the organization. Dave’s work to support Comcast NBCUniversal’s employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve has helped hundreds of individuals to balance serving their community and nation while continuing their civilian careers. He was instrumental in the development of a human resources concierge service and industry-leading paid time-off policies–efforts that contributed to Comcast NBCUniversal receiving the 2017 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award from the Department of Defense. Dave has built partnerships to help recruit and support diverse Military community members, including LGBT Veterans and Military spouses. A noted leader in Military community hiring, Dave developed Unique Veteran Employment Strategies, a panel which will be featured as part of the South by Southwest (SXSW) conference in Austin, Texas this March. Dave previously served as a pilot in both the US Air Force and Air National Guard and continues to serve as a Major in the Air Force Reserve. He was named a 2017 Veteran of Influence by the Philadelphia Business Journal.
