“I love having an opportunity to connect with those who provide for our families and communities.”
REGION MANAGER, PILOT TRAVEL CENTERS
HOW DID YOU COME INTO THE INDUSTRY?
I didn’t anticipate joining the trucking industry, but I started working with Pilot Flying J as a General Manager 15 years ago. Through my work with Pilot Flying J, the trucking industry has become my passion and Pilot Flying J has become my home away from home.
WHAT MAKES THIS JOB SO SPECIAL TO YOU?
With my lack of knowledge of the trucking industry, I did not appreciate the “items” or “goods” I had and never understood how they got from place to place. Part of what makes the job so special to me is having an opportunity to connect with those who provide for our families and communities.
WHAT IS YOUR GOAL FOR THE INDUSTRY?
Serving as Regional Manager for the past eight years, my goal is to create a sense of purpose in my team each day. I want them to realize that this is more than just a job — it’s a family culture — and drivers should have that same feeling of an overwhelming welcomeness and a sense of family that I have felt over the last 15 years, each and every day.
