We wanted to host a little information on Q&A style to get to know our newest addition.
Q: What is your background in transportation & logistics?
A. I have worked for my family’s freight forwarding business on and off since I started working at a young age. That includes everything from driving forklifts and building custom crates to actively participating in sales trips and working on shipments. I have worked with organizations that provide services to companies that do business internationally (SWITIC and ICE) as marketing and marketing research interns with an emphasis on data management.
Q: School background
A. I went to Samford University in Birmingham, AL. I loved Samford and the people and experiences that I had there. It has been a very strange ending to my college career because of COVID-19. I do not think any other group has had quite the experience that this year’s graduates have when entering the workforce. I feel like school prepared me well for the working world and I am very excited to start my career and make a difference. Starting work is intimidating and exhilarating at the same time and I am looking forward to growing and learning more each day.
Q: Jackson’s favorites
A. I love anything outdoors: Hunting, fishing, hiking, and training hunting dogs. I like to stay active by running and playing golf, racquetball, and volleyball in my spare time. My favorite vacation spot is the Northwoods of Wisconsin. My favorite movie is the Godfather part 1. I love the Cubs and going to Wrigleyville. My favorite kind of music is classic country.
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A. I would love to become a sales and marketing VP for a logistics company or a company in the outdoors industry.
Q: What are you looking to accomplish @ Candor Expedite?
A. Add value to the company by bringing a unique perspective and skillset to the Candor brand and its marketing/sales. Also, learn and develop new skills and techniques from the members of this very talented group.
