At King Solutions, we pride ourselves on being a 3PL company who invests in and takes care of our team. It’s one of the reasons why we were named one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. We want you to get to know our employees as well as they know each other. That’s why we started our Meet the Team series on our blog. Today, we are speaking with Alex Robertson.
Alex has been with the King Solutions team for over four years and is part of the Business Development team. Alex was nice enough to share a little more about his role here at King Solutions and his life outside the office. Here’s what Alex had to say:
1. What is your background that led you to working at King?
I was new to the Supply Chain world when I started at King. I had a friend whose relative worked at King Solutions. They subsequently introduced me to King.
2. What does an average day look like for you?
My day consists of a lot of customer interaction, prospecting, analyzing shipment data and creating solutions for our clients.
3. What do you love about working at King?
King has a great company atmosphere! The people I work with all do such a great job, it’s hard not to love it.
4. What are your hobbies outside of work?
I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I like to play basketball, football and golf. I live in North Loop Minneapolis, and I love going to twins and Vikings games!
5. What special talents do you have?
I am really good at Monopoly!! If you don’t believe me, let’s schedule a game.
6. Is there a person, in your industry or otherwise, that you wish you could shadow for a day? Who is it and why?
I would like to shadow Brett Andrich. He has many years of success in this industry as well as the business development role. I have learned a lot from him as my boss, but would love to shadow him for a day.
7. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I hope to see myself continuing to thrive in a business development role, with more clients and a greater satisfaction knowing King Solutions has brought the right solution to the table!
