My Brink’s Big Break
Phil Tomco, CIT Branch Manager – Phoenix, Ariz.

Over the past 20 years, my incredible career journey with Brink’s that has taken me from the West to the East Coast, and now back home to Arizona. I’ve come full circle in my Brink’s career and learned so much in my roles from Driver, Messenger, Trainer, Route Logistics Manager to Branch Manager. My Big Break was accepting the Branch Manager role in Brooklyn, N.Y., and leading that tremendous operation. As a Veteran of the U.S. Marines, I’m proud to work for Brink’s. If you work hard every day, prove your talent and deliver results, you’ll be surprised at where the opportunities here will take you.

My Brink’s Big Break:
Ryan Shannon – Branch Manager – Louisville, Ky.

I’ve had multiple opportunities within Brink's and Brink's Global Services that have allowed me to travel all over the country and work with many outstanding people. All said, I would have to say that my Brink’s Big Break was in 2003, when a branch manager asked me to apply for a driver position while I was delivering office supplies to the branch.

What I enjoy most about Brink’s is the people. The relationships that are made not only with our coworkers, but with our customers is what helps keep our business running every day.

My Brink’s Big Break:
Christopher Sherman, CIT Branch Manager – Plainview, New York

Before joining Brink’s, I was a part-time Driver/Guard for Dunbar Armored. Following the Brink’s acquisition of Dunbar in August 2018, I saw tremendous opportunity for a career beyond the part-time position I held at the time.

In this role, I’m able to utilize my previous expertise in national sales and operational leadership from companies, such as Hewlett-Packard, AT&T and i2 Technologies.
