Selman also joined the WWP board in 2020. He is the managing director of Graham Company, one of the country’s most extensive insurance and employee benefits brokers. He served five years in various leadership and staff positions in the U.S. Army’s combat arms units. In 1988, Selman transferred from active duty to the U.S. Army Reserve and began a 10-year career with Mobil Oil. He retired from military service in 2009 but continues to give back to his community as a volunteer with various nonprofit organizations.
Incoming directors Groberg, Stalker, and Streeter add over 69 years of combined military service to WWP’s board.
Groberg earned his commission as an infantry officer in 2008 and trained in both U.S. Army Airborne and Ranger schools. He received the Medal of Honor, the highest military honor in the United States, for saving the lives of his comrades during a suicide bomber attack while deployed to Afghanistan in 2012. After serving over seven years, Groberg was medically retired as a captain from injuries sustained in that attack. Post-service, he leverages his robust experiences to increase business efficiencies and productivity. He currently serves as a commissioner to the American Battle Monuments Commission. He received his master’s degree in management from the University of Maryland University College.
Stalker’s 31-year career in the U.S. Marines Corps led him to many locations, including Somalia, Iraq, and Afghanistan combat operations. He was a command senior enlisted leader at U.S. Space Command before retiring in August 2023. As a national security expert, Stalker supports several clients and nonprofits, including the National Defense University as a senior fellow, and other customers in the intelligence community, cybersecurity sector, and Space Operations. He has a master’s degree in cybersecurity and attended the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, where he became a Secretary of Defense Strategic Thinkers Program CAPSTONE graduate.
Streeter joined Bank of America in 2016 after retiring from the U.S. Army as a highly decorated command sergeant major with over 31 years of military service. At Bank of America, Streeter leads veteran and military affairs and is the lead consultant for the bank’s Veteran Retention Initiative.
