Veteran Spotlight: Jeff Moehling

U.S. Army Captain Jeff Moehling separated from service in June 2000 and began working with Orion International to find a civilian career. That partnership led to a position as a Sales Representative with Eli Lilly. The career match was an excellent one, and, in August 2014, Moehling celebrated his 14-year anniversary with the company.

After three years in his initial position, Moehling was promoted to Senior Sales Representative as a result of above average sales results and consistent leadership within his district. In May 2004, he was promoted to an associate role in Eli Lilly’s corporate office in Indianapolis, Indiana, and spent two years there as a Sales Training Associate. Following that, he was again promoted to a District Sales Manager position in Tyler, Texas, where he supervised ten sales representatives all over East Texas.

Then, in August 2009, Moehling made the decision to return to Austin and an Executive Sales Representative role in order to spend more time with his family and explore other outside interests. Moehling explains that doing so paid off, “I am now a father of two, and a three-time Ironman triathlon finisher!”

The success that Moehling is experiencing at Eli Lilly is not unique. His continued progression at the company is a prime example of the impressive talent companies are finding in veterans. Moehling advises that employers "take a close look at our veterans. The future leaders of your company are likely among them."
