During the time that I worked with Brandon I was extremely impressed with him for many reasons. Brandon was very competent at his job. He was able to excel at any task that he was given and met his goals and work expectations.
More than that though, Brandon is an incredible person. He was continually up- beat and positive no matter what was happening at the office or in his personal life. He went through some very heart breaking and challenging trials and all the while he didn’t let it affect his attitude or job performance. Not only did Brandon remain positive but he also inspired those around him to be positive as well. He consistently complimented and encouraged his co-workers and lifted up everyone with whom he came into contact. He was a very positive influence to not only the sales team but also the whole company.

I have observed that whoever becomes a friend of Brandon Byrge becomes a true friend. Brandon’s inclusive outreach to others and for others to me is inspiring. The numerous recommendation found on this site for Brandon attests to that. I am a better person for knowing Brandon Byrge.”

I strongly recommend Brandon Byrge, MMA champ and Sales Executive.
I don’t know of anyone I’ve ever worked with who has more energy and positive vibes oozing from them than this beacon of sunshine of a man! He is consistently the first and last to leave every day- not satisfied if his sales team is short on their goals- and always there to tutor and train when anyone needs help. I would recommend him anytime- we are working together now partly from my strong recommendation, and partly from his proven track record in sales and team management.”

He is one of the most pleasant people that you will ever associate with. He utilizes that ability masterfully. As a customer facing employee, his interactions are all about building a strong relationship. Some employees miss this and are purely transactional.

Managing Partner at Armstrong & Company, PC
“I had the opportunity to work with Brandon Byrge for two years in the Scouting Program. As the Scoutmaster of the Spanish Speaking Branch, he constantly showed not only patience and compassion while working with those young men, but demonstrated management skills enabling us to achieve our goals while building in the boys the needed feeling of self-worth for their accomplishments. When I was called to work with Brandon in the capacity of Committee Chairman, I soon learned that he was someone I could always depend on. I never had to worry about his part of the responsibility being accomplished; he always did more than his share and made me feel good about the support I was giving him. I would highly recommend Brandon for any position requiring dependability and responsibility. He has the good judgment and skills to make the proper decisions in sometimes difficult situations. I would gladly work with Brandon again in whatever capacity. He has my full endorsement for whatever undertaking he attempts in the future. He has the drive and character necessary for success, and would certainly be of benefit to any organization.”
Retired from the Government / Scout Leader
“I have know Brandon Byrge for over ten years. We met as we worked together as missionaries for the LDS Church in Chicago, Illinois. Brandon proved himself there as a hard working, consistent, diligent, and honest worker. He got along very well with his fellow-missionaries and with all the people he worked among in Chicago. He was well liked and respected as he gained the skills necessary to be effective and applied those skills seven days a week in his missionary service over a two year period.
Since then I have seen Brandon as a husband and father who works hard to provide for his family and seeks to give them the best life has to offer them. He is a very loving husband and father. I have no qualms about giving Brandon my complete vote of confidence and my highest recommendation. I know that wherever he works, he will work hard and be loyal and honest with his employer. I would be happy to speak to a potential employer about my recommendations for Brandon.”
