I reported directly to Sutton for about three years. During this time, Sutton lead us through the most difficult situations I have encountered in my professional career. Sutton was a consummate professional through thick and thin and maintained an unwavering ability to make decisions in the heat of the battle. To me, Sutton was more than a dependable boss, he became a business mentor to me and a dear friend to my family. He will be a pivotal asset to any organization, and a blessing to their staff.
