Campbell, owner of Campbell Consulting Inc., moved to Southwest Florida two weeks before Hurricane Charley swept through the area in 2004.
Before starting his consulting business he began in the restaurant industry where he managed a family-owned restaurant for 11 years. From there he ran a popular New England franchise for six years.
Once Campbell arrived in Florida he began working for corporate 7-Eleven for seven years.
"I decided to start my own consulting business where I assist business owners with such things as human resource issues, quality control, front (and) back office operations (and) profitability operations," he said. "I'll even assist in finding them new product to bring into their stores. I've been successfully growing my business for six years now."
After having a conversation with one of the owners from Miceli’s Restaurant in Matlacha, Campbell learned about Wounded Warrior Anglers and decided to attend an event to become more familiarized with the organization.
"After meeting Judy and Dave Souders I knew I wanted to be part of it. They are dedicated, humble and have great knowledge about the needs of our vets," he said.
When the opportunity rose, Campbell knew he wanted to submit his resume to be considered as a new board member of Wounded Warrior Anglers.
Although I was never in the military, my father and other family members were," he said. "I have a heart for our veterans and I feel it’s an honor to support our vets anyway I can," he said.
Becoming a board member is a blessing for Campbell because it provides another way for him to give back to veterans who have done so much for this country.
As a board member, Campbell hopes to assist in fundraising efforts, as well as bring more awareness to the organization.
"I'd love to see new chapters across the country open to continue the ongoing PTSD support these veterans so desperately need," Campbell said.
Campbell is married to his high school sweetheart of 23 years and has two grown sons.
