Three and a half years ago Hub Group was looking to expand their truck brokerage vertical. Seeking seasoned veterans and industry-leaders, Hub Group hired Chris Keller, Ryan Bristol, Nate Wilson, and Rob Simmons. Within the time period since they have grown to 115 employees and become one of the anchor companies in the Toledo Warehouse District.
Mr. Keller, Vice President, is proud of what they have accomplished as a team. “I have always carried my days school motto, ‘be who we are and be that well’. We have created an empowering, inclusive culture that drives fulfillment. A sense of community and family values has always been an important part of our office and I have seen this expand into the relationships we have with our customers, our carriers and the way our employees support each other. Passion and attitude determine how well you do something and a company must adapt to employees’ changing aspirations by continuing to offer new opportunities for growth.”
Speaking of growth, Hub Group has already expanded once and has since outgrown that space and is in the process of renovating yet another floor in what can only be called one of the premier offices in downtown Toledo.
