All In the Family – CareTeam Adds New Family Member To Staff| Category: Uncategorized
At CareTeam, we always talk about how our company is a family business, and it truly is. Now, we’ve added one more branch of the family tree to the bunch. CareTeam is introducing Colby Huffman as the new business development manager for the company. Colby will be responsible for continuing to grow the company and educating other healthcare professionals about how CareTeam helps seniors in our community.
So let’s see if we can get all of these family members straight: Ann Popejoy founded the company in 1972 with the original office location here in Wichita Falls. Ann’s oldest son, Greg Huffman, has played a critical role in developing the technology to grow the business into other states and regions since 1996. Greg’s daughter, Lacey Morgan, has served as the Marketing Director for the company’s Texas and Oklahoma branches. Colby is Greg’s son and Lacey’s brother.
“Even as kids, Colby and I always got along better than most siblings,” says Lacey. “Sure, we argued sometimes, but for the most part, we’ve always been a tight-knit, loving family. Now as adults, we get along terrifically.”
Colby has always been a very active person. He is a graduate of MSU, and a current nominee for this year’s Wichita Falls “20 Under 40”. He is also a graduate of the Leadership Wichita Falls class of 2011, an organization which teaches participants about the history of Wichita Falls and how it runs today, as well as encourages them to be actively involved in charitable projects throughout the year. Colby has served on committees for the Zombie Crawl, the Cattle Baron’s Ball, and has participated in the Hotter’n Hell Hundred. If that’s not enough to keep a person busy, he is also currently earning his private recreational pilot’s license.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun having him involved on a daily basis. He and I have complementary skills: he’s a people-person with lots of charisma. I’m a behind-the-scenes planner and enjoy developing the business strategy. One day soon it will be completely up to us to continue on with the family business, and I look forward to sharing that challenge with my brother.”
CareTeam has been caring for Wichita Falls’ loved ones for over 40 years. If you know someone who could use a little help at home, we hope that CareTeam will come to mind as an experienced and reliable provider of in-home care. We are available 24/7 by phone, which is always answered by a member of our staff (never an answering machine). Call us anytime to schedule care for yourself or a loved one.
