Name: Aaron Martinez
Job title: Warehouse/Purchasing Agent
Hometown: Cedaredge, CO
Family: One rascal of a son, Julian Caddis Martinez, age 2. I am the second oldest of four boys, parents are Celeste and Anthony.
College attended: Red Rocks Community College, Metro State (Denver), Front Range Community College.
Sports background: As a youth, I was involved in all types of sports – especially T-Ball, wrestling, basketball, football and track. I played center and nose tackle in football, and discus and shotput were my track and field events. My most humbling moment in sports was wearing a coaches jersey in T-Ball because I was too big for the player’s uniform. My friends break out that team photo, often.
Hobbies: I was raised to love the outdoors and did plenty of hunting and fishing as a child. My No. 1 hobby is fly fishing; a river full of trout and a box of dry flies is my sanctuary. Would love to get art back into my life; I am also getting plenty of time in changing diapers.
Favorite trip: My honeymoon to Hawaii was the most memorable trip so far, as we visited all the major islands on a cruise. Five of my best friends and I made a fishing trip to Lake Michigan this summer, and that was also great.
How did you become associated with Triple Crown?: Rachel Cavallaro mentioned there was an opening, and I also saw the job post online.
What intrigues you the most about Triple Crown?: Triple Crown’s core values are what anyone would want to experience in a workplace. I see eye-to-eye with all of them. The Triple Crown staff has been very welcoming, and you get that “team” feel as soon as you walk in the door. It’s exciting to be a part of this unique industry.
