derek.pngMeet Derek Starks - A Preferred Wireless Store Manager Story


Here at Preferred Wireless, we strive to promote from within our ranks. Meet, Derek Starks, one of Preferred Wireless newest inductees to our Store Manager division.

Derek started working for Preferred Wireless in November of 2017 as a sales associate in our Okemos Michigan locations. Derek was an exceptional sales associate always going out of his way to help his fellow teammates and ensure that his customers left his store happy. Derek is extremely driven and strived to exceed every sales target we put before him. 

We asked Derek a couple questions about his transition to Store Manager:


Q: So Derek, now that you are a store manager, what is your next goal?

Derek: “2. My personal goal as a store manager is to double our store quota in one year.”


Q: Wow Derek, that is a pretty lofty goal! We love it! What excites you most about your new role?

Derek: “I would say the thing that excites me the most about being a team leader is getting the opportunity to build a crew that I think will dominate the industry and be a part of something great!”


Q: Derek we are behind you 100%! What would you say helped you the most on your journey to management with Preferred Wireless

Derek: “Preferred Management helped prepare me for my management role through extensive training such as in-store, corporate, and STAR training. Our leadership’s support and dedication to our development, in general, has been the glue that holds everything together.”
