About

In my current position, I am responsible for all transportation and logistics related functions for AMI. Much of my job is intertwined with the overall Supply Chain. My team is responsible for moving finished goods from our plants or distribution facilities to our end customers. We also handle all inbound raw materials, part for products, etc. Also, our company has an extensive fleet of vehicles, from over the road tractor trailers, to specialized trucks used to move material on to a homeowners residence. All of those vehicles are managed by my core team. In my group, attention to detail, the ability to multi-task and work under pressure are daily occurrences, so my military training was vital.

Advice

The military helped me find myself and my place. When I left high school I had no clue what I wanted to do, was good at, or where I wanted to land. Once I hit the structure of the Army, I found purpose. I realized my background was secondary to my success. As I did more in the Army, it shaped me as a young man, helped me realize things I never thought I would accomplish, exposed me to leaders who helped guide me, and taught me the value of hard work and dedication. I carried that into civilian life and apply those principles to every single work day, decision and activity I undertake.

Takeaways

Travel- I traveled extensively, so this helped make me well rounded in life. 

Education- I started my college degree at night while in the Army, and realized only I controlled my destiny. 

Desirable Traits- I learned so much in the Army, and I carry that with me daily. The Army taught me to think quickly and be proactive, but also how to properly react. Those are two desirable traits for people I interview and hire.
