Colton Purvis was born in Mississippi and made his way to Houston, Texas in 2013. “I’m not from Texas, but I got here as soon as I could,” says Colton. He worked as an outside sales representative for over three years and then advanced to a management position where he relocated and opened an office to develop his own sales team.
While he loved serving customers and developing people, he realized the importance of a college education and went to college at Hinds Community College and The University of Southern Mississippi where he earned degrees in Business Management and a Bachelor’s of Administration with a major in Accounting.
After college, Colton exercised his degree and worked in two public accounting firms and an oil and gas company for five years. It took five years, but he realized that sitting behind computer screens all day was not his passion. He made the move to RevLocal as a Digital Marketing Consultant in the Houston, TX market and is now enjoying working with business owners and providing services that businesses desperately need. Making the move to a Digital Marketing Agency and developing marketing campaigns for local businesses can be complex and challenging, but he understands that this is the area for small to medium-sized businesses where he can have the most impact on their bottom line.
In his free time, Colton enjoys going to the gym and running in the local Houston parks, spending time with friends, and traveling. He also travels back to MS to spending time with his family as often as he can.
