“The problems you have today will be the solutions tomorrow.“
-Michael A. Moore Jr.
What do you like most about working for a tech company?
It’s interesting every day. Tech is evolving, changing, and getting better every day. The problems you have today will be the solutions tomorrow.
Who is your role model? Why?
My role model is my Dad. He’s been in the Transportation industry for over 35 years. He started as a dispatcher dealing with only 10 trucks and worked his way up to Vice President of Operations. I’ve learned every aspect of this industry from him, including the importance of having a good work ethic and a determination to go above and beyond in everything you do.
Tell us your favorite part of your job.
My favorite part of the job is the consistent change. It’s not the same old thing every day, and that’s what makes my job so fulfilling.
Has anything/anyone significantly impacted the beginning of your career?
I learned from a previous boss not only to work hard but to learn as much as you can as well. He always said that “the more you know, the more valuable you are to that company.”
What advice would you give your future self?
Hard work pays off. Stay the course and keep grinding to get what you want in life.
If you could live anywhere, where would that be?
The place in all the world I would want to live is Tennessee. That‘s where my family is from – I grew up on a lake outside Knoxville called Norris Lake and it was the best time in my life.
What is your greatest fear?
My biggest fear is not doing my best. I have some big shoes to fill.
What type of music are you into?
I like all kinds of music. In college, I was a DJ at a club on campus and I learned a craft I can always use and pass on to other people. I learned to listen to every genre of music, and I love it still today.
What’s the best vacation you’ve ever taken and why?
It hasn’t happened yet but will be very soon. It will be when I go to Hawaii for 10 very amazing days in the white sandy beaches and the crystal clear blue waters. And relax on the beach.
