    Integrity, service before self, and quick thinking under pressure—those are the assets Robert Palmer gleaned from 25 years in the U.S. Air Force. That’s why the CEO of management and IT consultant Creative Business Solutions hires veterans, because he says they combine “understanding of what needs to be done to accomplish a mission and the work ethic to get that mission done.” His team’s military background gives them the insights needed to understand their top customer: the federal government. Palmer is also building CBS’s IT arsenal so it can help both government and private groups boost their cybersecurity.
