Q & A with Stanley
Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m from Owenton, KY. I’ve been married to my beautiful wife Sarah for 11 years, and we have three awesome children; Carter (11), Caelyn (8), and Cooper(5). Outside of my job, I coach kids in football, basketball, baseball, softball and tee ball.
How long have you been with Broadlinc?
This month is my one-year anniversary with the company.
What brought you to the company?
I heard about the company through locals and learned it was close to my house. I wanted to work locally, so I applied for the Sales Representative position and was hired instantly. Three months later, I was promoted to Field Sales Manager due to my track record of acquiring 300 customers in less than a year. Overall, working for Broadlinc was the perfect opportunity for me.
What do you like most about being a Field Sales Manager?
I enjoy helping the team reach their potential in the field doing door-to-door sales. My ultimate goal for my team is the help them meet that same 300 customer mark in their first year as well.
How would you describe the culture at Broadlinc?
Broadlinc’s culture is very family-oriented and leadership . We have a strong team that works efficiently together, and we all respect one another.

I really enjoy the camaraderie aspect of my job. I like interacting with both customers and my coworkers.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

How would your family or friends describe you in three words?

Tell us something most people would be surprised to learn about you.
Most people don’t know that I’m the youngest of eleven kids. We have a big family!
If you can have an unlimited supply of one thing, what would it be and why?
Time because it flies by when you’re busy or having fun. Time is a precious thing.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
