As Priority1 closes out the second quarter of 2022, we would like to take some time to highlight our newest employee of the quarter. Priority1 takes great pride in showcasing the hard work of Bethany Kay who is one of P1’s LTL Support Analysts and was recently promoted to become a Team Supervisor. Bethany is the Supervisor of a team that supports some of Priority1’s largest LTL customers and has been with the company since January 2021.
Bethany’s favorite projects at work include anything HAZMAT (Hazardous Materials). She has taken it upon herself to learn anything and everything about HAZMAT, so that she can be a great resource for her LTL Team. She enjoys the challenge of ensuring the BOL is perfect and covers all the details that must be right for the carrier to accept it.
When Bethany was asked who she most admires, one might expect her to answer with an elder or someone famous; instead, she responded with one of her peers. Forrest Goss, the Supervisor of the LTL East Team, is who she most admires, because he is the reason she is here with us at Priority1 today. He is a great mentor to look up to and has always seen the potential in Bethany. Her favorite thing about Priority1 is the people, hands down! Not only those in the Corporate Office, but our outside sales, carriers, and customers.
Bethany has a vast diversity of hobbies and things she enjoys outside of the office. She has recently learned the power of couponing, which has caused a running joke on her team, that when a new employee is hired, they are greeted with toothpaste from her stockpile. She uses this hobby to give back to the community by donating the items she gets every month to charities and shelters. A fun fact about Bethany is that she was once part of a semi-pro gaming league for Counterstrike and Call of Duty.
Bethany’s personal mantra is to set those around you up for success. She runs into situations every day where customers are new and not familiar with the shipping process, so she makes sure to take the extra few steps to help customers understand and tackle issues immediately.
“Bethany quickly made a name for herself at Priority1 as a team player and a leader within LTL Support. Her willingness to go above and beyond to provide solution-based LTL support has made her a rockstar in the eyes of our customers and sales team alike. Her biggest strength is her ability to see things through and act as a de facto account manager to assist anywhere she is needed.” — Mason Alexander, Director of LTL Support
Bethany is not only here to help P1 customers with their LTL needs but is looking forward to growing and developing as a new supervisor. Congratulations from all of us at Priority1 for your incredible accomplishments, Bethany. As one of our LTL Supervisors, you have achieved immeasurable success, and we are thrilled to recognize you for your dedicated work and achievements.
Tune in next quarter to see who Priority1 names Employee of the Quarter for Q3 of ’22!
