Earlier this year, I had the great pleasure of photographing my work colleague and friend, Floyd Alcorn, Executive Director, of Technology Business Support. Floyd is known for showing consistent leadership inside and outside of Cox Communications. Many people refer to him as being a strong leader, teacher and ambassador in the community to name a few. I will add that Floyd is someone who is authentic in friendship, whom you can always count on to give you honest feedback and advice on a personal or work level.

During our shoot, it was most important to me to capture a side of Floyd that not only showed his strong work personality, but the fun and energetic side as well. It’s always a treat photographing great leaders who own who they are! Please meet Floyd Alcorn!

Q. Where are you from?  

A. I am originally from Indianapolis, IN. I have a wife, Cathy, and two sons: Zachariah, and Jordan. Zack is the oldest and is currently serving in the U.S. Navy in San Diego as a helicopter pilot. Jordan is a senior at the Univ of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

Q. What is/were the best and worst phases of your life?

A. Best – I always like to believe that the best is yet to come. Gives me a reason to get up every morning. Worst – losing family members. I’ve lost my mother, father, and only brother.

Q. Veterans Day is Wednesday, November 11. You served in the Navy, please share some memorial thoughts of your service and Thank You for your service.

A. I recently shared with some colleagues that there is no better feeling than coming home after a 6 month deployment. From the moment you wake up that day, you can’t stop smiling.

Q. What are you most thankful for? Why?

A. To be alive, to have a family, to have had that family be intact for 26 years. Why: should be obvious.

Q. What is the one thing that people always misunderstand about you?

A. They tend to misunderstand my silence. I learned a long time ago that one can only learn when one is listening. When you talk, you can only say what you already know.

Q. My last question and I thank you for sharing a little bit about you! My question is… If you could change something in the world, what would it be?

A. Would love to see the immortal words of Martin Luther King Jr. come to fruition: that people would judge one another by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin.
