Priority1 is honored to announce our newest Employee of the Quarter: Kevin Hamilton.
Kevin joined the Priority1 team six years ago as our Truckload Administrator. Kevin spearheads carrier compliance, ensures that carriers are up to Priority1’s standards, and installs the carriers in Cabo for use.
“Kevin is the definition of a team player. He is always willing to do anything that is asked of him and pushes himself to go above and beyond. He is willing to help anyone at any time, and if you ask anyone in carrier sales, he is greatly appreciated for all that he does. This award is well deserved!” — Jason Sheffler, Director of Carrier Sales
A significant milestone for Kevin occurred during the transition of our internal TMS. In the early stages of this transition, the carriers required double the effort since they were using both programs. Kevin was proactive during this time as he focused on exporting carriers from one platform to the other, which was a tedious task as Priority1 has over 47,000 carriers.
Reading and writing are Kevin’s passions, and he once shared a pen pal relationship with the co-creator of Spider-Man. He is a self-published author whose fantasy novel Enemy Among Us is available on Amazon and at Barnes and Noble. He is currently spending his time working on a sequel. He also enjoys watching TV shows such as House of the Dragon, The Last of Us, What We Do In the Shadows, and generally anything Marvel or Star Wars. Kevin enjoys spending his time rooting for the Dallas Cowboys as well as training in Brazilian jiu jitsu. As an author, Kevin will continue writing compelling stories and building a following.
Kevin’s personal mantra is from the words of Albert Einstein: “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” Kevin’s department is crucial to Priority1 as they are a last line of defense in terms of making sure only quality carriers are working on Priority1 loads, especially in terms of safety and compliance.
Kevin aspires to help the admin team grow as Priority1 continues to grow, both to take the load off other departments and to keep providing high-quality work. The team has doubled over the last year, and he would like see that growth continue and to see the department flourish: “There is a genuine sense of teamwork from folks from all walks of life. You have the ability to be yourself while also being part of the team.” — Kevin Hamilton, Truckload Administrator
Kevin, congratulations from all of us at Priority1 for your incredible accomplishments. As a Truckload Administrator, 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 our next Employee of the Quarter!
