Getting to know Brian Sucher better by reading his Q&A below:
What were you most excited about joining our team?
The opportunity to take on a newly created position within the company to positively impact change and contribute to an already great culture. After visiting and getting to know the team and the people that I would be working with, it just fit.
What are your favorite ways to unwind outside of work?
Spending time with my family and watching my two young boys play sports. They are both avid baseball and soccer players and you can usually find us warming the stands on most weekends. We enjoy many outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, floating, fishing, and running (though, running…not so much lately). I enjoy seeing live music with my wife and our music loving friends.
What is your favorite seafood? How do you like to prepare it?
Hands down, SCALLOPS. I like them lightly seared with a little butter and garlic.
