Dare to Dream: Christian Cardwell's Journey

Image
People who succeed in a career at Oryx Nashville often have certain characteristics in common. They may be described as competitive, resilient, hardworking, friendly, or driven. We are fortunate to work with an individual who encompasses all of these traits: Christian Cardwell. Born in Knoxville and raised in Nashville, Christian is a proud Tennessee native. He grew  up in Brentwood as the son of two teachers, so as you can imagine, academia was very important in his household. As a kid, Christian struggled with hearing loss, asthma, and being allergic to just about every nut you can think of, and then some. A sports lover at heart, he was disappointed when doctors told him to stay away from outside sports due to his asthma. Though Christian recognized that his asthma was would hinder his athletic ability, he wasn’t the type of guy to just call it quits. He was determined to be an athlete, so he tried out for almost every sport that his middle school offered. He made none of the team…

Wrapping up 2015 the right way!

Image
Our team has been extremely busy over the past 3 months! Not only have we been preparing to launch 2 new locations at the beginning of 2016, our team has had some pretty awesome travel and networking opportunities.
In September, we had our annual Manager’s Weekend in Cancun Mexico. Senior Partners, Michael Cosper and Vianca Reyes, Junior Partners Justin Dickey and Brett Herbst, and recruiter, Tyler Jackson, were all flown to Cancun and stayed at the Moon Palace for an all-inclusive getaway. During the trip, they participated in a charity volleyball tournament, went deep sea fishing and networked with other leaders in the company.
In October, Vianca and a handful of other Senior Partners from all over the southeast spent a few days in New York City! They met with one of our clients, but most of the trip was spent exploring the Big Apple and shopping. Hard work really does pay off.
We are only half way through November and it has already been one of the most exciting months of the yea…

Oryx Nashville team members take home some hardware at National event

We recently attended our annual National conference right here in our own backyard. The event was hosted at the Gaylord Opryland here in Nashville and what a great time we had! Not only did we have an opportunity to network with some very talented people, but we also had some of our team members receive some national recognition.
The largest recognition was for our senior partner Mike Cosper. He was one of 8 nominees for "Manager of the Year." Out of over 300 people who would be up for this award each year, Mike's hard work and performance over the past year was recognized in a big way. Although he did not win the award, being nominated put him in the top 2% of the field. Mike also collected a $7,500 bonus at the event. Congratulations Mike!
That wasn't all. Our other manager in the Nashville office, Vianca Reyes, received recognition as well. Vianca was recognized as a "Top Rookie" and received a "20/20" trophy.  We also had three people get reco…
