What attracted you to the world of logistics?

Logistics is one of the most rewarding arenas to work in. I feel a sincere sense of accomplishment and fulfillment (no pun intended) knowing that my continued efforts play a significant role in getting the consumer the products that they want and/or need. Everything around us, literally everything, was once in a warehouse and at one time or another on a truck. 

What life motto do you aspire to live by?

“Make your name a name to remember” – Stan Whitlock 

How do you like to spend your free time? 

You can find me on a golf or disc golf course nearly every weekend (rain or shine!) When I’m not competing in or preparing for an upcoming tournament, I’m usually on our hunting property. 

Favorite aspect of life at MyPorter?

I’m ecstatic about the waves of disruption we are bringing to the market. The industry has never before seen or experienced a service like MyPorter. Coupling decades of experience with a focus on modernized technology and a fresh vantage point on warehousing and logistics makes for an exciting time to be a part of this organization. 

Where do you see MyPorter in 5 years?

Major growth is inevitable for MyPorter. The speed in which we are expanding makes it very difficult to put into words in where we will be without selling ourselves short. Global dominance? Maybe. A “household name” in the warehousing + logistics marketplace? Absolutely!
