Sutton is a natural leader with a wealth of experience and expertise. He has exceptional strengths in business development, real estate negotiations, and business planning. I had the privilege to serve directly under his leadership for nearly three years and am thankful for the personal and professional development he invested in me, and the knowledge and wisdom I picked up by observing him. He is a gifted business leader, and a trustworthy, respectable man. Within a short period of time he transformed the operations of our organization, rescuing us from imminent financial turmoil. He provided high impact organizational leadership that we had been lacking for years. Sutton was instrumental in helping us engage in fruitful and impactful relationships and partnerships that have reshaped our priorities and values. I would welcome any opportunity to work with Sutton again, and hope our paths cross again in the future.
