What drew you to Gulf Winds?

Prior to me starting with Gulf Winds, I was a customer of GWI in Dallas. I was always very impressed by the service levels GWI provided. Although I was not working with GWI on a day to day basis, the ops team in my office was always talking about how Gulf Winds was different than other truckers and that thought stuck in the back of my mind. Over a few years I developed a friendship with Jamie Hampton and Brad Elam. Integrity was something that always stuck out to me with both Brad and Jamie. They were always up front and honest and more importantly genuine anytime we met. I knew that if an opportunity ever presented itself, I would jump to join the team.

What are you passionate about?

From a work perspective I am passionate about working together as a team. With so many pieces in our business it is so important that we collaborate with each other. Outside of work, my wife and I love to travel and try to take a few short trips every year to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Most of our travel is to see family and friends and there is noting better to us than spending time with the ones we love.

What excites you most about the work you do?

I love getting to work with customers and our team. We have a special group here and there is nothing more that I love than showing off the folks we have to our customers. At the end of the day, it is not what I am doing that drives our business but our internal team and drivers.

What does your future hold?

I hope to continue to grow with GWI and contribute to the overall success of the company. It is so exciting to see what the leadership group is doing at Gulf Winds and the future is obviously very bright! Personally, my wife and I are looking forward to starting a family in the future! We are blessed to be surrounded by family here in DFW and have an incredible group of friends.

If you had one message for our customers & industry partners, what would it be?

We are fortunate to have an incredible group of customers and partners. Anytime we get to spend time with our customers I truly enjoy the time and have made many friends through work. GWI has always partnered with companies who share similar values. It is incredible to me to see how our partners have jumped in to help support GWI and the foundation!
