When you think about the beauty of a rainbow or the feeling of fresh dew on a summer morning, you think of Justin. You may ask yourself…" Self, why am I so overwhelmed with happiness when Justin is around?" The simple answer to that is Justin has most likely just bought you a beer and given you a high five.
Justin comes to us from the insurance world. He owned his own agency for the last four years and decided he loves the opportunity to connect and get to know people but hates doing the business owner stuff. Aquire is the perfect fit for him because Jeff has to do all that stuff now. Be prepared to see Justin out and about shaking hands, saying hello, and volunteering in the community.
When Justin isn’t spending his weekdays being fun to hang out with, he spends his free time with his wife, cleaning up after their three kids. That’s about it for hobbies because let’s face it, kids ruin your social life.
