Which core value is most meaningful to you?
Humility is the most important core value in life and work. We need to treat each other with respect whether it’s a teammate, a vendor, a salesperson, or a customer. I believe all good comes from when people care and respect each other. People like working with people when they strive for team success rather than individual performance.
What motivates you the most in life?
My family is my daily motivation both personally and professionally. Work hard, play hard! I was raised to work hard and take ownership in everything I do. Family motivates me to be the best teammate because there is no option for failure.
What special sauce do you bring to Arcadia?
The special sauce I bring to Arcadia is my customer service experience at the facility level. I understand how to build a customer profile as it pertains to a specific facility. I understand that the warehouse is an extension of the customer’s business and to make sure the customer is set up for success from the start.
