Sam Staes

Director of Contracting

How did you get here?

I used to work for the sister company of SMS. I started there part-time as a second job while I was going to school, and I liked it so much I went full-time. After I graduated college and went to a different job for a while, I missed the family atmosphere and amazing co-workers here, so I came back.

What is your favorite part of working at SMS?

The people I work with. Everyone brings something to the table and it is incredible to be a part of a big company with a family-style feeling.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to spend time with my wife and our daughter and our two Labradors. I also love to watch football, hunt, fish, or go camping. I also enjoy spending time watching Netflix, going on vacations, and spending time with friends.

What can you help agents with?

Most of my time is spent keeping all of the forms on the website up to date, so that the agent does not have to worry if they are working with old forms. I also do a lot of the supply orders for agents when they need kits sent to them.

What should your job title be?

Lucy’s babysitter
