Today we’d like to take a few minutes to highlight our team member, Colton Watkins! Coming up on his 2nd year with the company (in December), Colton is one of our consultants for C5BDI and someone many of our clients work with on a regular basis.
Like many of C5BDI’s team members, Colton has a long history with the US Military and was a former decorated U.S. Army Non-Commissioned Officer, providing several years of experience in training and mentorship of armed forces personnel while holding supervisory positions ranging from Operations NCOIC to Detachment Sergeant. This leads us to one of the things he enjoys most about the company, during Colton’s time on active duty, he valued the camaraderie and the feeling of making a difference while serving our country. C5BDI’s dedication to the warfighter and the community gives Colton that same sense of pride and fulfillment.
Colton’s two favorite hobbies are fishing and golfing, and he’s actually created a YouTube channel dedicated to fishing content, check it out here –> Colton Watkins on YouTube. Did you know that during Colton’s time in the military, he spent 10 years sailing the world as a US Army Watercraft Operator? Well, it might make even more sense when you hear that he also graduated from Old Dominion University (ODU) with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, studying Business Analytics and Maritime Supply Chain Management.
Colton’s favorite TV show is The Last Kingdom on Netflix (worth a watch if you haven’t already) and his favorite movie is The Imitation Game! If he had to title a book of his life, Colton would title it, “Carpe the Diem, seize the… Carp!”. Lastly, if Colton has an absolute recommendation for anyone, he suggests that you compete against yourself every day, “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” – Ernest Hemingway.
Thank you to Colton Watkins for all the hard work he does for this company every day and the continued efforts/successes we see for our clients, and as a whole, C5BDI.
