What do you do at Grand Island Express?
As the Sales & Strategy Manager, it’s my job to keep our sales staff focused on company goals and finding the best possible driver friendly/revenue generating freight we can. Trucking companies strive for efficiency and Grand Island Express is no different. My job is to work daily towards a more efficient company footprint.

What are your credentials/past experience, for working in your position?
I’ve worked in sales for 20+ years. Sales are about building relationships and trust with your customers. Give and take is the name of the game when it comes to building successful accounts. As a sales rep, I take pride in our customers trusting Grand Island Express can get the job done. Honestly, I feel personally disappointed when we fail our customers.

What do you like about working at Grand Island Express?
I like the FAMILY ATMOSPHERE!!!! Some days we disagree like a family, but at the end of the day, we care for one another and for our drivers. Transportation is a strategy game we all play every day.

What’s your background?
I was born and raised in Nebraska, attended the University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK), and graduated in 1999. I started my sales career with the Tri-City Storm hockey team in 2000. I worked there until 2005 when I came to Grand Island Express. I have worked in sales pretty much since graduating from UNK.

What are the values that drive you?
Honesty, dedication and my commitment to moving this company forward! I get satisfaction from seeing others succeed through my efforts.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I enjoy my faith, spending time with my family, hunting and then anything Huskers!!!!

Jason is based in Grand Island, NE.
