Preference Personnel

Todd Obbink

Todd Obbink

Todd probably needs to trademark his Preference name as The Godfather. We aren’t really sure where he got the name but working on our Industrial team for over 20 years now, Todd has almost seen it all. He started his career as a police officer, then after a year found himself joining the US Army, first as Military Policeman and later an Army Recruiter. His passion for learning and being curious drew him toward people and figuring out where they would fit. Growing up on a farm gave him welding, maintenance and equipment operating experience. His favorite story to tell is as a ten-year-old he was tasked with sticking his arm in a sow to pull out a baby pig stuck inside. Although Todd has traveled the country, his favorite place to be now is with his grandkids, wife and family friends.


What volunteer opportunity are you most passionate about? I am passionate about the United Way. The most influential event they host is, “A Day in the Life Of” A Poverty Simulation. It a good reminder and eye opener that many in our community may go through some of these experiences. It helps to remember empathy and compassion when meeting people wherever they are at.

What are 3 life highlights? Living in Germany with my family for 3.5 years while serving in the Army, serving 13 years in the Army and earning the Sergeant First Class promotion in 10 years.
