Employee Spotlight on Waylon Smith

Our employee spotlight for this edition is on Waylon Smith. Waylon is originally from Mobile, AL but now he and his family live north of the Atlanta area. He has been married for 15 years to Katey and together they have two daughters, Alayna (12) and Isabelle (8). They love to spend time together outdoors, hiking and having dinner together. It’s important for them to not overload their schedule, and they prioritize spending quality time together as a family. Some of Waylon’s other favorite things to do include hunting, running / adventure races, sitting by a campfire, and yard work. He enjoys spending time in the Florida Panhandle, but really wants to visit Yellowstone National Park one day in the future.

Waylon is part of the Sales Team and has been with Southern Professionals for 4 years. Relationship building is a huge part of his role and he values relationships he has built with our clients and buyers we serve. “The friendships I have built and walking into a store to see a product on the shelf that we helped get placement for” are what excites him most about being part of the Southern Professionals team.

When asked what gets him up each day? Waylon loves the feeling of accomplishing a task and getting things done. He feels that his career is like a fundraiser for organizations his family and our team supports, and he loves the challenge of selling products for our clients! Displayed on Waylon’s desk is a sign printed with his life mission: “Pursue Jesus, serve my family and inspire men to lead a life of purpose and leadership”.

We’re thankful to have Waylon as part of the Southern Professionals team!
