I’d been working in the world of time-sensitive events—concerts, sports, exhibitions, and expeditions all over the world—for about 25 years, and I’d occasionally consider what it would take for me to leave that role. I decided that, first and foremost, it would have to be for a company with very interesting logistical requirements.
One rule I live by is, “Always know where your freight is.” Whether it's on a ship, a plane, or a truck, taking off, landing, clearing, delivering, or picking up. What keeps me engaged every day is doing my part to keep the whole endeavor moving. Everyone in this building is so engaged in their own important part of this work. I really try to make logistics run smoothly, quickly, and quietly so that everyone else has what they need to do their jobs. I enjoy being part of it and helping this company do things that haven’t been done before.
