Support Warrior Project Leadership Team
"May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right." - Peter Marshall
The leadership at Support Warrior Project is driven by a common goal, to deliver long term, sustainable entrepreneurial development services to the U.S. Armed Forces and the veterans community we serve with the unique combination of purpose, passion, professionalism, and determination to our business partners and to our teams.

He's passionate about providing entrepreneurial development services to the Military community (transitioning service members, Veterans, Service-Disabled Veterans, Reservists, National Guard, Active Members and Military spouses of all branches) with the entrepreneurial resources needed to be successful business owner.

He has held the leadership positions of Platoon Sergeant, Section Chief, Senior Drill Sergeant, and Team Leaders; He deployed in support to protect our freedoms as part of Operation Joint Guardian (KFOR), Operation New Dawn, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Sauveur extremely love what he does, helping his fellow's brothers and sisters getting what they want. He knows that veterans need tremendous help when it comes to continuing their service, but what he's also finding out is that they're looking for new ways to make more money.
