Recently, I had the honor of speaking with Shane McCarthy, Chief Marketing Officer of Sandboxx an amazing veteran-owned platform that supports almost 2 million service members throughout their military journey. The organization assists recruits, active military, military families and their supporters to stay engaged and informed.
Shane, a charismatic and intuitive Irish born and bred young professional, has led a full array of enterprise marketing and business operation teams, building foundations that enable companies to scale for growth.
A few years back when Sandboxx was in its start-up beginnings, Shane was eager to join the ranks of the company’s industrious Marine Corps veteran founders and has embraced the organization’s culture and mission.

Over the past 5 years, Sandboxx has hired 50 team members, half of whom are veterans and military spouses. Due to the nature of military life, most of the Sandboxx military spouse team work remotely which is an extremely important current trend in assisting spouses with maintaining successful employment when considering the obstacles they face from PCS to deployments and beyond.
Shane is passionate about this endeavor as well as spreading the message of the important services Sandboxx provides its consumers. He even provided tips to employers on hiring practices involving military spouses as well as advice for spouses seeking remote employment.
Shane and I discussed Sandboxx’s core supports ranging from communications through the company’s global letters distribution service, content creation to keep families informed as well as technology features such as the organization’s free cell phone app, and additional support provided to service members and military families from basic training onwards.
