Current Position: Carrier Manager – Flatbed Team
Years with Fetch: 5
School Attended: Buffalo State College; University of South Florida
Degree: B.A. Education focused in Elementary Education
Hobbies: My hobbies include supporting my two boys in their activities such as hockey, football and basketball, as family is my number one priority outside of my career
Favorite thing about working at Fetch: I love the family atmosphere here at Fetch.  I work in a competitive environment with a great team.  We fully support one another and help each other to grow and succeed.

About Kim:

With a degree in Elementary Education in Western New York, I found myself at a dead end road. I heard about the position available at Fetch through another employee who loved her job and earning potential. I knew from the interview that this would be a wonderful place for me to begin a new career path. As a Carrier Manager, I use my natural ability to communicate with others on a daily basis. The base salary plus commission puts me in control of my own income. Goals here are reachable and the training was impeccable. Fetch cares about their employees. The owners are right on the floor with us, ready and willing to dive in and help out anytime. We have tons of fun celebrating holidays, have summertime cook outs, and contests that keep up the energy levels here.

Current Position: Carrier Manager – East Team
Years with Fetch: 1
School Attended: Monroe Community College
Degree: Communications
Hobbies: Soccer, golf and fishing.
Favorite thing about working at Fetch: The collaborative atmosphere, and team aspect of selling. Working singularly to achieve one ultimate team goal. The structure is built to show your contribution to the company daily, monthly, and yearly.

About Taylor:

In my early sales career path, I interviewed at a few different places. I finally came to the conclusion that I needed a fast paced, high intensity work environment. Fetch provided the competitive atmosphere I had been looking for in the work place, and really set themselves apart. You can always rely on directors or management for answers to new questions. Being allowed to use your own style and approach makes each day interesting and different. Plus, the tools I’ve been provided with through training have helped me succeed early in my time here. I initially started as part of the West Coast team coming out of training, and was quickly moved to the Southeast Team thereafter. I graduated to become a Junior Carrier Manager with the Southeast before joining the East team. Making quality my priority, as well as feedback from my team has helped me build strong relationships with carriers. Ultimately, everyone has helped me hone my communication and sales skills, and have left me extremely satisfied with my decision to work here. I look forward to what the future holds for me here at Fetch!

Degree: B.A. in Communication with Concentration in Public Relations/Advertising
Hobbies: Golfing, Hockey, Hanging out with Friends
Favorite thing about working at Fetch: The people that I work with and casual work environment.

About Matt:

I started at Fetch after graduating college hoping to get my foot in the door of the business world and to start gaining sales experience. You quickly learn the in and outs of the industry and ways you can contribute. There is never a day that is the same at Fetch. The fast pace of the day keeps you busy and teaches you to effectively manage your time and work.

I started out as a Carrier Manager and worked my way up to a Team Leader of the East division in October 2014. Currently, I am a Regional Specialist.  Being able to put your knowledge and experience to work and see it turn profits for the company is rewarding and gives you a sense of satisfaction. One of the best parts of working here is developing relationships with customers and carriers, they are ultimately the ones that make you successful. Fetch continues to grow everyday and having such a dedicated group of co workers is something I value.

Current Position: Regional Leader – Flatbed Team
Years with Fetch: 9
School Attended: University at Buffalo
Degree: B.S. Business Administration, Marketing concentration
Hobbies: Playing sports, working out, cars and movies
Favorite thing about working at Fetch: Every day is different and exciting.  That plus the environment of this company makes me enjoy coming to work every morning.

About Steve:

I came to Fetch Logistics right out of college as I wanted to start my career with an established small business that would have room for growth.  I was drawn to the environment, casual dress code, numerous fun work activities, competitive compensation, and knowing they promote from within, providing endless opportunity.  I started out in the training program when I was initially hired, and once I graduated, I was put into a Carrier Manager role.  After one month, I expressed interest in moving into an Account Executive role in which I brought in many accounts.  I was then given the opportunity to move into the Flatbed department to help grow the department and sell to flatbed accounts specifically.  During this time, I learned a great deal about the industry as I sold to both customers and carriers.  I was then promoted to the position of Operations Manager in which I assisted the Flatbed Director.  After about 8 months, I was promoted into the position of Operations Director.  My current role as Regional Leader of Flatbeds includes management of my team and ensuring the continued growth of the Flatbed department.  My future plan is to expand the Flatbed department and continue to progress in my career.  Fetch Logistics has provided me with the career growth I was looking for and I couldn’t ask for anything better.

Current Position: Account Executive Mentor

Degree: A.A General Studies
Hobbies: Cooking, volleyball, hiking, and golfing.
Favorite thing about working at Fetch: My co-workers! Everyone here is very friendly; always willing to help you out if you have questions & the competitive atmosphere is the icing on the cake.

About Steve:

I grew up knowing a little bit about logistics – my father was a Global Compliance and Logistics Manager for years, but that was only the surface. If you’re looking for something that’s challenging but rewarding, Fetch is the place to be. Any job is hard work, but with the relationships I’ve been able to build with my customer’s, my fellow employees, as well as management, I’ve been able to grow in a successful direction.  I’ve learned something new every day over the past 4 years and I am looking forward to continuing on this path of growth. In 2016 I was asked to become a Mentor for new AE’s joining the team and I couldn’t say no. I cannot imagine being where I am today without my Mentor from 4 years ago and I can only hope to do the same for all of the new employees. My goal is to become a National Sales Rep and continue to mentor anyone looking to join our team.

Favorite thing about working at Fetch: No day mirrors the next and being challenged on a daily basis.

About Mike:

I recognized early on that the owners took a hands on approach and were committed to the company succeeding. I knew that if I worked hard and produced that I could be a key part of the company’s growth and progression. It was my thought that as the company grew, I would have an opportunity to grow with it, which I did. 10 years ago, I started as a Carrier Manager where I learned the business and developed the foundation for my career. I then moved into various management roles throughout the company, such as Water Team Leader, Southeast Team Leader, West Director, and Vice-President of the Flatbed Division (start-up division). In 2012 I was named Senior VP of Operations. With each role I have learned and grown as a leader in the organization and as an individual. I truly believe an organization is as good as their people and we have a wonderful staff.

School Attended: Buffalo State College
Degree: Elementary Education
Hobbies: Cooking, walks in Delaware park with my dog, spending time with friends & family
Favorite thing about working at Fetch: My co-workers!

About Ashley:

After teaching for two years, I decided I wanted to do something different with my career. I then started working in politics for a year with the Senator of the 60th district until he lost re-election. That is when my friend who worked at Fetch mentioned how his company was hiring and said he thought I would be a good fit. I came here for my interview and just walking through the office I knew I would want to work here. I got hired as an account executive for the flatbed division. I love it! My team is awesome and my director is always there for guidance when I need it. Fetch has this family type of atmosphere along with the competitive side that keeps me motivated.

I look forward to the continued growth of Fetch Logistics and seeing my contributions develop over time!

Current Position: Regional Leader – Midwest & West Coast Team
Years with Fetch: 6
School Attended: University at Buffalo
Degree: Supply Chain and Operations Management
Hobbies: Snowboarding and wakeboarding
Favorite thing about working at Fetch: Fast paced work environment.

About Justin:

What first attracted me to this job was the way the pay system worked and the casual work environment. Once I was trained and began managing carriers, I really enjoyed the competitive and fast paced work environment. There is rarely a dull moment and there is always work to be done. I began as a Carrier Manager in the Southeast Division, then moved to the Columbus OH team, and then finally to the Chicago IL team. I spent roughly a year as the team leader of the Midwest where I worked side by side with the Director learning the management side of the business. I then stepped into the role of Director of the Midwest, which entails overseeing the day to day activities for all shipments out of that zone. After a year in that position, I made the switch to the Director of West Coast operations. This was a new region for Fetch and my goal was to expand the area so we can better service our customers. I am now the Regional Leader of the West Coast team.  I have learned so much from my coworkers in the past 3 years and look forward to passing along that knowledge to new hires as we continue to expand. This industry is constantly changing and Fetch has had to adapt to that. The company has grown substantially since it was started and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down at all. I look forward to seeing what the future brings for not only myself, but the company as a whole.

Favorite thing about working at Fetch: How fast the day goes by, people that work here, and career advancement opportunity.

About Christina:

I attended UB and graduated in 2010 with a degree in Business, concentrating in Human Resources and Supply Chain Management. I was hired that summer as a Carrier Manager in the East division. Since that time I have held almost every position; I have managed customers as an Account Executive, managed the Northeast Division as an Operations Director, and served as the Director of Training. My current position is Director of Sales, in which I manage the Account Executives. It is my job to ensure they are growing their book of business with both current customers and new prospects, and make as much money as they can! I am able to use the management skills I have developed in my career at Fetch, and my experience in the industry and sales to propel each individual in selling and learning more each month. My position is stressful but very rewarding, and no day is alike! Fetch supports me fully in my decision making and give me the tools necessary not only to make money for myself, but to have a large impact on the company through my team.

Current Position: Regional Leader – Buffalo West Division
Years with Fetch: 10
School Attended: Buffalo State College
Degree: Secondary Education
Hobbies: I enjoy spending time with friends and family and supporting the Boston Red Sox and Manchester United Football Club.
Favorite thing about working at Fetch: My favorite thing about working at Fetch is the “open door” relationship each owner and manager shares with the employees. Employee perspectives are welcomed and creative problem solving is encouraged, whether you are    a trainee or a 10 year veteran.

About Mike:

I came to Fetch seeking a career with great earning potential and advancement opportunities. Early on, I realized I found both. The commission structure rewards hard work and the company’s commitment to promoting from within demonstrates their dedication to employees. I began my career at Fetch as a Carrier Manager on the East team. Within one year, I was acting as a Team Leader in my group, heading up projects and assisting the manager in daily activities. After a year as Team Leader, I was promoted to Director of the East division, which I led for 3 years. Most recently, I became the Director of the West division. Throughout my years with the company, I have always enjoyed the fast-paced and ever-changing atmosphere of our day to day work. From negotiating with carriers across the country to finding a truck for a last minute shipment to help a customer, no two days are ever the same. Each day brings new challenges and together, as a team, we work to solve problems to serve our customers’ best interests. Moving forward, I am excited to be a part of the continued growth of this company as we expand into new regions across the country. Three new regions have been opened since I began working at Fetch, offering many opportunities for advancement and financial growth, both for Fetch and the employees.
