Here at FreightPros, we’ve talked extensively about company visibility and our cool Austin company culture that we’re so proud of. We believe that relationships, both professional and personal, are key in running a successful business, freight industry or otherwise. As a third party freight broker, we don’t often get the chance to interact with our customers and clients directly, instead doing most of our work remotely. And though technology has presented tons of opportunities to streamline and manage business, there’s no replacement for a bit of old fashioned human interaction. With that in mind, we’re introducing a new series of posts called “Meet a Pro.” These will be interviews with our employees AKA our “Freight Pros,” and will introduce our many team members. We want our customers to know the voice on the other end of the line when they call in to get their shipping needs met, so without further adieu…. Meet a PRO: Morgan BellamyPosition: Account Manager Hometown: Cumming, GA University: UGA (University of Georgia) Go Dawgs! How long have you been a FreightPro? 2 years In one word, describe the freight industry. Fast-Paced. That’s two words, but whatever. You get what I mean. How long have you lived in Austin? A little over 2 years. What’s your favorite thing about Austin? The general vibe. And the weather, of course. I just like to be outside and it’s easy to do that here. What’s your least favorite thing about Austin? The Austin traffic, without a doubt. And by the way, everyone is going to answer that question with “traffic.” If they don’t, they are lying. Where’s the coolest place you’ve ever visited? Machu Picchu in Peru. It was AMAZING. I love to travel. Favorite book or movie? Favorite movie is “Life is Beautiful.” I don’t really read that many books. I probably should though, right? Probably, but forget about that because it’s time for THE DESERT ISLAND ROUND!!! (The “desert island round” is that classic question of, “If you were stranded on a desert island…” so that’s the format for these next questions). Name three foods. Go!Veggie Smoothies, Veggie Pizza from Salvation Pizza. Annnnnd…..Coconut water. It’s an island, don’t you think they’ll have coconuts? Next question. Okay. Name a band or musician or song. “Hallelujah,” but the one by Jeff Buckley. One piece of clothing. This sweater. It’s my favorite. Alright, now we go into the final LIGHTNING ROUND!!! There will be two options, and you have to pick one!!! Why are you yelling? Sorry. Here we go. Apples or Oranges? Apples. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Beatles or Stones? Beatles Twilight or Hunger Games? Twilight. Team Edward, duh. Fox News or NPR? NPR. East 6th Street or West 6th Street (Austin)? Depends on my mood, but probably go East 6th Street. Final question, and it’s a big one. Kanye vs. Jay-Z? Neither. WHAT?!?!?! So there you have it! A little bit of info on one of our account managers, Morgan Bellamy. As I mentioned above, this is only the first in a series of interviews. Meet a Pro will return with… Billing Specialist Emilio Dominguez.
