Given his more than 30 years of industry experience, it’s no surprise that Myers was asked to take on the role of interim Regional Manager for all of Virginia this year while his predecessor was on personal leave. Prior to that, he led the fastest growing market for Cox Business in Northern Virginia. Myers is proud of being awarded the Mae Douglas Leadership Award by NAMIC-Atlanta a few months ago. “Receiving an award in Mae’s name was an incredible honor for me,” he says. “Throughout her career at Cox, Mae dedicated herself to driving talent and developing leaders while emphasizing diversity across all levels of our company.”

What’s your biggest professional accomplishment in the past 12 months?

I was honored a few months ago with the Mae Douglas Leadership Award by NAMIC-Atlanta. Receiving an award in Mae’s name was an incredible honor for me. Throughout her career at Cox, Mae dedicated herself to driving talent and developing leaders while emphasizing diversity across all levels of our company.

What’s the best business advice you’ve received?

Keep your game face on. As a leader, you are always “on” – on stage, in the spotlight, being observed by others who view your actions and reactions as a barometer. Whether you are in the grocery store, at dinner with your family, or just commuting in the car, you must maintain a level of professionalism and accountability at all times.

How do you define diversity?

Diversity and inclusion are about participation based on equality, working relationships and shared values.  For a company that means recruiting, hiring and developing a workforce that reflects the markets where you do business and the communities in which your employees reside.  It allows you to draw from the best talent regardless of personal demographics.
