Meet Connor Akins
We are thrilled to have our new Client Solutions Executive, Connor Akins! Connor is from Lubbock, Texas, and will also serve the west Texas area for Cactus Technology Solutions. He attended Texas Tech University and has experience in the real estate industry as well! He is eager to get the name of Cactus Technology Solutions out there in the community, so he can start having productive conversations with clients locally and from afar. Connor is very personable and loves to have conversations with potential clients and show them how Cactus can help their business. “I think one thing is that Cactus is so unique in what we do, but being able to share with them what we’re able to do for them; they may just think internet or phone, but getting people to understand what we do fully is most important.”
Just in the short time that Connor has been with Cactus, he has seen the company culture as very welcoming, inclusive, and hard working. “It’s very much family-oriented, and everyone is very team-oriented and very team-first. The team at Cactus TS was very interactive with me as a new person and welcoming- hit the ground running kind of approach.” He believes that leadership should look like “everyone working towards a common goal, in the trenches together to work towards that goal.” He enjoys working together as a team and has enjoyed getting to know everyone at Cactus so far.
Connor defines success as something that is “a process, it doesn’t happen overnight. You have to wake up and take each day head-on while doing the best you can.” His long-term goals include growing with Cactus and increasing company exposure to the West Texas area.
Connor is recently married, and he and his wife recently added a new member to their family, a wiener dog puppy named Mr.Beans! He loves to spend his free time with his family, two cats, and Mr. Beans. Connor is very excited about his future with Cactus and wants to grow and compound success within the company for years to come.
