Project relo Leadership team
Casey McEuin is a leader, adventurer, prolific networker, and the Executive Director of Project RELO. Like so many of our veterans, McEuin is focused on mission, purpose, and making an impact in our communities, companies, and country. He currently directs his keen sense of commitment to the worthy endeavor of pinpointing the intersection between business talent needs and the skills, training, and rich character of our transitioning veterans.
The wellspring of Mr. McEuin’s commitment is the unique combination of optimism and hardship. At the age of 25, McEuin was an aspiring Olympic athlete and a fierce competitor on the Army’s Tae Kwon Do team. Eight years later he earned the Purple Heart when he was shot through the back in Afghanistan. And in that same instant, he lost the use of his legs.
Hardship is no match for optimism. Despite being told that the paralysis was permanent, Casey insisted that he would walk again. Nearly two and a half years later, he did exactly that. Upon leaving the military, his struggle continued as he worked to assimilate into a society that was unable to understand the full extent of what a veteran of 17 years had to offer the workforce. Galvanized by his experiences, McEuin dedicated himself to helping veterans transition more effectively into the civilian workforce. He fulfills this mission as the leader of Project RELO, and by setting the example for other vets by continuing his education and personal and professional development.

Michelle is one of the co-founders of Project RELO and serves as a Director. She was raised in a military family where her father, uncles and sister served as officers in the U.S. Navy, U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps. Fundamental to her family upbringing and what she contributes most to her success was the value placed upon moral character: integrity, courage and good old hard work.
She brings an impressive history as a sales and strategy executive in the high technology, cyber and consulting industries. Most recently serving as the EVP of Global Sales for Aon/Stroz Friedberg, a cyber security consulting firm, she assisted enterprise clients to proactively manage and control their risk and security posture. During her tenure at Oracle and HP Enterprise she held various leadership responsibilities inclusive of strategy, sales, architecture and business development on a global basis. She created and launched many highly profitable services portfolios as an intrapreneur within both companies. Each of these disruptive technologies required appropriate security strategies and solutions to address the unique environment, regulations and risk profiles.
Michelle has significant experience seeking, hiring and managing top talent during her career. As an executive, she is fully aware of the challenges of finding and developing quality talent, however, she has experienced first-hand the benefits veterans can bring to organizations. She has a passion to serve our veterans while bringing experienced talent to organizations which contribute appreciable value.

Christian Anschuetz is an entrepreneur, business executive, and two-tour active-duty veteran of the United States Marine Corps. His diverse background and interests have helped him incubate a successful technology services company, propelled him to the executive ranks of two leading firms, and most recently, inspired the launch of the innovative nonprofit startup Project RELO.
Always challenging the status quo, Christian is now tackling the pervasive issue of veteran underemployment. His unorthodox approach teams top corporate executives with exceptional veteran leaders as they conduct multiday military field exercises. With the generous support of the United States Army, Project RELO creates the environments and curriculum that result in the most engaging, effective leadership training available anywhere.
Developing leadership talent, however, is just one of the outcomes. More importantly, the visceral experiences of participants result in the keen understanding that hiring a veteran is more than a social good—it is simply good business.
Christian is currently the Chief Digital Officer of UL (formerly Underwriters Laboratories) and the Chairman of Project RELO. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics from the University of Michigan, a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Science from Strayer University, and is a graduate of Yale’s Executive Leadership Program.
