What the nominator said:

“Cordell has moved quickly and deliberately through his career, starting as a front line associate in 2010 and moving to assistant vice president in three years, and most recently to vice president. He has done this through hard work, dedication, enthusiasm and the support and guidance of many strong mentors and coaches. He takes pride in his work and always strives to exceed expectations, and he is not afraid to challenge the norm, but does so in a professional and positive way.”

Social media platform you can’t live without:

Facebook

Biggest break:

“My biggest break was moving to Delaware from Maryland because it gave me the opportunity to meet some great people that helped me grow, and push myself to explore new things and experiences. I have learned the value of networking and how important it is to surround yourself with a diverse group of friends that expose you to different things and ways of thinking.”

Two words that best describe you:

Your advice for the next generation:

“Be the change that you want to see in the world and do not let anyone define your dreams.”

In one sentence, define success:

“Happiness is success.”
