Operation New Uniform Joins The Consortium

Scottsdale, AZ, July 2, 2024 — Stramaglio Consulting proudly announces the addition of Operation New Uniform (ONU) to The Consortium, a distinguished think tank of imaging industry leaders dedicated to fostering growth and success within the channel.

Founded in Jacksonville, Florida, a decade ago, Operation New Uniform (ONU) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to empowering active duty servicemembers, veterans, and military spouses as they transition from military life to purposeful, stable careers. ONU’s programs, grounded in Sandler’s globally recognized training principles, offer diverse learning environments—including in-person, virtual, and self-paced options—tailored to meet participants’ physical and emotional needs. These transformative programs are provided at no cost to students.

As the newest member of The Consortium, ONU looks forward to sharing its expertise in recruitment, training methodologies, coaching, mentoring, and networking practices. This collaboration aims to expand ONU’s reach across the United States, enhancing support for its students and fostering new opportunities for career success.

“What began as a simple idea to assist one U.S. Navy veteran a decade ago has evolved into a comprehensive transition training program that has supported nearly 600 active duty servicemembers, veterans, and military spouses,” said CEO and Co-Founder Michele McManamon.” Joining The Consortium presents a thrilling opportunity to expand our network and aid even more individuals in their journey to fulfilling civilian careers. We owe it to them and their families to honor their service and sacrifices.”

The Consortium is assembled by Mike Stramaglio, President and CEO of Stramaglio Consulting, in order to establish an open collaborative platform that enables the imaging channel to embrace and lead Digital Transformation (DX). 

“We are incredibly excited to welcome ONU to The Consortium,” said Mike Stramaglio.

“ONU brings invaluable expertise in transforming lives through education and training. Their inclusion will enhance our ability to drive innovation and create new opportunities. By integrating ONU’s outstanding programs, we support our veterans and enrich the imaging channel with skilled professionals ready to lead in Digital Transformation.”
