We’re loving our new monthly spotlight feature that allows us to recognize the amazing people we have on our team! Last month, Stan was chosen as our Most Supportive Team Member (read more here!), and this month’s theme was Rookie MVP.
We asked our team to think about those individuals who have joined our team so far in 2019, and submit nominations for who they felt has taken to this business quickly, has been very willing to learn, and has supported their team from Day 1. While we’ve had some great new hires join us this year, Kenya Tabler was selected as our Rookie MVP! Here’s just a few of the things our team had to say about Kenya: “an asset from day one,” “always a team player,” “persistent dedication to improving,” and “fits in really well with our Bridge family.”
Kenya started with us in February, and she works on one of our top producing sales teams in our operations department. We’re so thankful that she’s a part of our family, and we can’t wait to see the impact Kenya will continue to have at Bridge Logistics!
We caught up with Kenya – keep reading to learn more about our Rookie MVP!
