Paladin People: Austin Lee, Relationship Specialist
Austin is passionate about the outdoors and helping clients
Austin Lee is a gregarious, adventurous and outgoing guy. He’s backpacked all over Europe. He’s run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. And his favorite things to do are snowboarding, wakeboarding, and selling. Paladin clients lucky enough to work with Austin can tell just how much he embraces work and life.
Austin grew up in El Dorado Hills in the foothills of California’s Sierra Nevada between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe. The location, with easy access to mountains and lakes, lent itself to Austin becoming an aficionado of snowboarding and wakeboarding, pastimes that he still enjoys.
The youngest of Tim and Pam Lee’s three children, he attended San Diego State University where his main course was economics with a side of computer science. So when he talks Paladin Point of Sale to prospective clients, he knows his stuff.
After college, Austin took a little break many people just dream of.
“Backpacked in Europe. London, all over Ireland, Brussels. Visited Amsterdam and Paris. Ran with the bulls in Spain. San Fermin is a big party all week. It was a lot of fun,” he recalls.
Once he returned to the states, Austin landed in Arizona and with Paladin Data Corporation where he works in the Mesa office and is one of the company’s leading sales specialists. Austin has been with Paladin for nearly two years. The relationship has worked well for Austin, Paladin and the company’s clients he works with.
“Love sales. I’m going to do it the rest of my life,” Austin says. “I’m kind of an extrovert. I like making relationships, getting to know people, and seeing how successful they are after we’re working together. I’m a people person. I enjoy it.”
