Anne M. Sprute
Senior Vice President, Transition Strategy and Innovation
After serving in the military for a distinguished 24 years, Anne Sprute founded and scaled a Washington State-based 501©3 nonprofit RallyPoint/6 (RP/6). The mission focused on connecting transitioning service members and their families to opportunities in the private sector after military service. In 2015, RP/6 formed a strategic partnership with the USO, integrating the best-in-class model of the RP/6 transition mission across the USO enterprise.
Under Anne’s leadership, RP/6 fully integrated with the USO in January 2017, becoming the USO Transition Mission Strategic Business Unit. Joining forces expands the USO’s capabilities and commitment to serving the military by incorporating the agility, innovation, programmatic and technical expertise and experience of RP/6. As Senior Vice President of Transition Strategy and Innovation, Anne is responsible for spearheading and scaling the overall transition mission and a portfolio of related programs across the USO enterprise.
During her military service, Anne served in leadership roles overseas and stateside. She is a graduate of the U.S. Army Warrant Officer and Army Aviation Schools and is qualified in three Army airframes – the UH-1 Huey, the OH-58 Kiowa Warrior and the UH-60 Black Hawk.
Anne is a graduate from the inaugural Presidential Leadership Scholars class, a unique leadership development program developed by the Presidential Centers of Lyndon B. Johnson, George H.W. Bush, William J. Clinton and George W. Bush. The presidential centers partnered to bring together a select group of diverse leaders who have the desire and capacity to take their leadership strengths to a higher cause in order to help their communities and our country prosper.
Anne is married to an Army veteran and has two children who attend college in Montana and Colorado.
