Sean Coleman

Sean Coleman, CTO and Chief Customer Officer

Where I'm From:  I grew up in the Carolinas, spending my younger years in the wonderful Wilmington, NC and later years in Columbia, SC, finally settling down in Raleigh, NC where I live to this day.

Family:  I’m happily married for close to 20 years and have two wonderful kids, a 14 year old daughter and 6 year old son.

Hobbies:  My deep dark secret (not much of a secret if you know me though) is a love for all things Disney.  I think it’s the fond childhood memories and magical atmosphere that Disney creates, which drives me to visit at least once a year.

I’m also an avid reader, and enjoy novels by Tom Clancy and others in that genre.

Favorite Sports Teams: Carolina Panthers and ECU Pirates!

Favorite Movie Quote: “Here's looking at you, kid!”

What Inspires Me: I am inspired by those who do not give up. Those who are loyal to their team, aspire to win, and make life truly enjoyable by their openness and ability to get things done.

Family Facts: I asked my wife to get married the second time I met her. We have two sons. Our oldest is 17 years old, 6 ft. tall and 165 pounds. Our other son is 15 years old, 5 ft. 11 inches, and 185 pounds. On a lucky day I am 5 ft. 6 inches. My sons tower over me, and I love their hugs.

Random Fact: I proposed to my wife the second time I met her, and the third time, and the fourth time, until she said yes. I am a lucky man.

Best Advice: Time is the most precious thing in life. We can lose money and get it back, we can get sick and become healthy, but when we lose time it is gone forever.

Where I Am From: The UK, where according to my US friends and colleagues, we speak with ‘funny’ accents and say strange words like boot, pavement and bin.

I have been a season ticket holder at my favourite team - Manchester United for more years than I can remember. Of all the sports I participate in, skiing is by far my favourite.
