Colin Croteau

Senior Recruiter - Houston, TX.

I grew up in Katy, TX which is a suburb of Houston.My hometown was such a great place to grow up. There were lots of things to do, but it still had that small town feel. Everyone was very friendly and there was a nice sense of community. It keeps growing and is different every time I go back.

When I was growing up, my mom influenced me the most. She always encouraged me to push my boundaries and try new things. I learned early on that nobody knows everything, and that there is always something new to learn or a way to improve.

I got my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Sport Management from Texas A&M University. I loved attending A&M (for 7 years!) and hope to send my children there one day too!

Over the years, I have spent a lot of time volunteering with Second Baptist Church of Houston. My family has been attending the church for most of my life and they have a strong impact on our community and help a lot of people in the Houston area. Each year, one of the biggest events for volunteers is Angels of Light. This is around Christmas time, and we bring in families who are going through tough times. We give them a nice warm meal, groceries, and presents for them to open up on Christmas morning.

Hundreds of families participate each year, and they get to have a genuine Christmas experience and feel the love and fellowship of our community. That is something that most people take for granted. To be able to provide them with that experience and see the joy and gratefulness on their faces is something that sticks with me and reminds me how lucky I am and how I have a responsibility to take care of those less fortunate.
