We are proud to introduce to you, Matt McAllister! Matt has been a part of the Soren family for almost three years and contributes to the growth of Soren as a Capacity Analyst. Chris Dupuis, Account Manager and Matty’s superior explains perfectly why we value Matty so much: “Matty is smart, forward-thinking, and a strong member of the team. He continues to look for ways to add value for our customers and drive more business in the door. He’s a pro at developing carrier and shipper/receiver relationships, exhibits strong communications skills, and he handles the stress of the job like a pro.” Thank you, Matty, for being apart of our team! We appreciate you!
Here are some fun facts about Matt:
What brought you to Soren? I met the Soren team through a career fair at Texas A&M, as a senior, and the rest is history.
How is Soren different than other companies you’ve worked for? I’ve been pretty blessed with good bosses and managers over the years, but I think the biggest difference would be the ways we make work fun.
Which Soren core value means the most to you and why? It changes depending on what is going on at work. Right now, I really like “Embrace the Journey”. There are a lot of ups and downs in logistics, but it has been a fun journey.
Do you have any advice for new or potential Soren employees? Ask lots of questions and don’t be afraid to fail.
