Josue “Joe” Robles, president and chief executive officer of USAA, was named the Executive of the Year on April 25 by the Dean’s Council of 100 at the W. P. Carey School of Business. A retired major general, Robles leads a company that offers financial services to military families. In his speech, Robles said USAA will add 1,000 employees to its Arizona offices in the next three years. He then explained to the audience of business leaders how USAA is helping veterans and their spouses to develop careers. On April 30, 2013, he will be among 70 CEOs meeting at the White House to discuss ways to help veterans transition from military service to careers in a challenging economy.
