June’s spotlight is Colin Bernd, Client Relationship Manager.
Position: Client Relationship Manager

What is the last book you read?
“Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone To Take Action” by Simon Sinek
When you are not at work, you are?
Checking out a new hiking trail, taking surf trips to the Jersey shore when home with family, or planning our next road trip.
What is the best piece of advice you have received?
Both quotes are attributed to famous speakers, but were given to me as advice:
- Don’t just aspire to make a living, aspire to make a difference.
- Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
What do you like most about working at Advent Partners?
I like building relationships with coworkers and clients and doing our best to make work fun.
What is something people might not know about you?
Since getting married last September, I have been working remotely while living a semi-nomadic lifestyle with my wife, Sarah, who has been a PICU travel nurse in different cities across the US. She recently finished a contract in Albuquerque, NM and started a new contract a few weeks ago in Seattle, WA. We’ve had the opportunity to see some beautiful parts of the county on our drive including stops at several National Parks.
