Afterburner, Inc.'s Embed Program Fine-Tunes Military Leadership Skills for the Business World

Former Navy SEAL Carter Gaffney and other candidates emerge ready to transform business processes.

Afterburner, Inc., the global authority on the Flawless Execution model and a leading team building, training, and consulting firm based in Atlanta, GA, announces that former Navy SEAL Carter Gaffney, a past Embed program graduate, has been promoted to Senior Director of Operations at During the Embed program, Gaffney and other graduates learn to leverage their powerful military leadership skills to improve a company's bottom line.

The program also encompasses a wide range of tools, such as the Flawless Execution cycle, that help candidates translate their existing military leadership knowledge to a business environment. Candidates learn how to use this methodology, while improving results and driving success. Gaffney applies the knowledge and training he received while at the prestigious United States Naval Academy and through his Navy SEAL training, along with his MBA from Harvard Business School to his new role at "Afterburner by far understands military candidates better than any other recruiting firm out there. The company's Embed program takes all the things we learned in the military, and makes this knowledge highly transferable," said Gaffney. "Furthermore, the opportunities that Afterburner had lined up were companies already interested in my skills and abilities."

Afterburner candidates represent a group of professionals with elite military leadership skills. Throughout the Embed program, candidates are introduced to a number of human capital development solutions that help them prepare for the corporate world. Upon graduation, candidates are matched with Afterburner's client organizations for dynamic positions in a range of cutting edge industries. "Carter Gaffney is yet another example of what Afterburner's Embed program can do for each elite military professional," said James D. Murphy, CEO of Afterburner. "This existing knowledge and training, combined with the powerful tools of Flawless Execution, equates to success."
