In January of 2021, we added Collin Trinkaus to the G&S Team as our new Account Executive for the Central Florida area. Collin is an avid outdoorsman with a passion for landscapes and working with people. He has been in sales for the past five years and came to G&S after deciding he needed a change. His enthusiasm and values align with ours and our company culture: Continually Improving, Teamwork, Enjoy Our Work, Customer Obsession, Keep Our Promises.
Sharing some of his thoughts about coming onboard with the team, Collin said, “I was drawn to the culture because it reminded me of my own background. Getting to know everyone has been so heartwarming. Everyone here is valued and has a voice. G&S was exactly what I needed in this chapter of my life. Not only am I able to be outdoors and put my landscaping background to use, but I also feel like I am valued and appreciated by the team.” We are ecstatic to have him with us!
Originally, Collin is from Kutztown, Pennsylvania which he describes as a small town with lots of wide-open fields and spaces. He attended Bloomsburg University and earned a bachelor’s degree in business marketing. After college, he made his way to the Philadelphia area to begin his work in sales. At the start of 2021, Collin moved to Jacksonville, FL and his belief is that meaningful experiences and genuine conversations are the key to forming long lasting relationships in business, as well as in life.
According to Collin, his friends describe him as the fun one and his positive, upbeat attitude resonates with that. His love of the outdoors carries over into his hobbies including hiking, camping, golfing and surfing. He and his girlfriend Brenda would say there is no better feeling than spending time on the beach, catching some waves and throwing some frisbee with the help and entertainment of their dog, Scully.
