Sean Lewis joins the Protis Banking Team
Indianapolis, IN - I had the pleasure to meet Sean through an annual children’s charity golf event in Indianapolis in 2011. Through a mutual friend, I was able to “recruit” (yes, recruiting leaked over to golf) Sean to join our 4-person golf team. It was a big time recruit as two of us were average to below average golfers’ and we had another solid player but we needed a consistent rock. The tournament format is set up with no mulligans and has a high price of entry – great for players and great for the charities in the fund raising goal.
As I spent time with Sean in 2011 and then again in the 2012 tournament (we won both years by the way), I started to learn about his professional skill. But also as you play golf with someone, you learn so much about peoples’ characteristics and attributes. What I discovered in Sean is a competitive spirit, high energy, positive attitude and a good sense of humor. I learned about his professional background and quickly understood that he had traits to do what we do every day –Build Companies & Change Lives!
So this past September 2012 riding along about the 15th hole, I mentioned to Sean to consider a career at Protis. It seemed to make sense where Sean was in his career life-cycle and also in his personal scorecard. He soon reached back out to me and we began discussions--- I am excited to say that Sean is a member of the Protis Banking practice and I am sure success is in his future but as important, the candidates and clients he will come across will be in great hands.
As a by-product benefit, Protis has just strengthened our golf team and we will be back next year in the IMG Golf outing to nail down a Three-Peat and I am sure Sean will be a catalyst to the endeavor. In the meantime, I would encourage you to reach out to Sean and get to know him.
