Overcome Challenges, Seize Opportunities,
and Achieve Total Victory for Your Business
Here at Uptima, we are proud to be 40% Veterans and Military Spouses, and many of our employees are both! We honor and recognize those who serve our country, and make it a mission to support our Military community. Join us for an engaging session with Jocko Willink’s team, the Echelon Front! Jocko Willink is an American author, podcaster, and retired United States Navy officer, and his organization, Echelon Front, is a team of decorated, combat-proven Veterans with experience in building, training and leading high-performance winning teams. The mission at Echelon Front is to help you build your own high-performance team and win.
In this session, Carlos Mendez from the Echelon Front will teach the practical and experience based solutions behind Extreme Ownership. Using vast experience with dynamic leadership challenges, the Echelon Front connects those lessons to both business and life so leaders can apply them immediately.
Carlos is a former Navy SEAL who started his Naval career as a medic with the Marines where he completed two deployments. Upon his completion of BUD/s he was assigned to SEAL Team One where he served as the medic, primary sniper, and point man and completed deployments to Southeast Asia, Iraq, Central America, and Afghanistan. Carlos then served under Jocko as the lead instructor in charge of teaching Close Quarter Combat for the all the West Coast SEAL Teams.
During his time there, Carlos was chosen for the prestigious Seaman to Admiral program through which the SEAL Teams cut the member away to complete their undergrad degree and come back as an officer. Former recipients of this award include Jocko and Jonny Kim. After completing his undergrad degree in finance at the University of San Diego, Carlos came back to complete two more deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan as the Assistant Officer in Charge and the Officer in Charge at both SEAL Teams Three and Special Reconnaissance Team One. Carlos finished his Naval career as the Executive Officer for SEAL Training command. After separating from the service and before joining Echelon Front, Carlos completed his MBA from the Anderson School of Management at UCLA and worked as an investment banker.
If you’re able to participate, we will be shipping an event kit in advance that includes a copy of “Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win” by Jocko Willink, as well as items that support veteran and local-owned businesses.
Additionally, for every registration, we will sponsor a wreathe towards our Salesforce & Uptima Wreathes Across America Fundraiser.
