Braxton also has years of senior management experience in the wireless and retail industry, as well as 10 years of experience in public accounting. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Colorado with a major in accounting and is also a certified public accountant.

Braxton’s favorite superhero is Superman—and he often compares his work fighting for customers at T-Mobile to the feats of the Man of Steel. But when Braxton hangs his magenta hat for the day, he can be found traveling to new places or bingeing Netflix originals.
