What is something people in trucking and/or your particular area of expertise have to deal with that you want to fix?
I want drivers to understand that there ARE some companies that can be a career-long home for them. Not all trucking companies are built the same and Grand Island Express is certainly unique in our segment.
What do you do at Grand Island Express?
I have the privilege to work with our operations, sales and recruiting teams.
What are your credentials/past experience, for working in your position?
I’ve been in the trucking industry for 20 years – 18 of which were in LTL, running progressively larger operations.
What do you like about working at Grand Island Express?
I love the family atmosphere. Drivers have direct access to management, and from my standpoint, we are a nimble organization that can act quickly to the changing needs of our customers.
What is your background?
I’ve been married for 20 years, I have 4 kids, and I grew up in Omaha, NE. My career has had us moving several times all over the Midwest, so we’re very happy to be back in Nebraska!
What are the values that drive you?
Honesty, integrity, hard work, grit and determination, and hustle.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
We have a hobby farm, so most of my family time revolves around that. We’re almost always maintaining fence line, maintaining equipment, putting up hay, feeding the cattle, building sheds, etc. Aside from that, my family loves the outdoors, so we find ourselves hunting, fishing hiking, biking, or simply sitting out at the campfire.
