Employee of the Quarter: Kyle Morton
Each quarter, Priority1 aims to highlight a hard-working, dedicated employee who continues to fly high above their pre-set expectations. Though the company has taken a long hiatus from pointing out a specific employee in recent years, this quarter Priority1 takes great pleasure in shinning a light on Kyle Morton, a Software Engineer working with our Software Development Team. Kyle’s diligence, self-motivation, and dedication to achieving the best possible results have not gone unnoticed.
“Kyle’s background and experience in enterprise software development make him an invaluable development resource on the team. He continues to be a major asset to the organization as we integrate the Truckload functionality into our TMS.” — Phillip Scholtes, Vice President of Technology
A native of Paragould, Arkansas, Kyle is motivated by his family, claiming “I always want to be someone they can be proud of.” While he is driven to be reliable and dependable in and out of the workplace for his peers and supervisors, he strives to improve his skills as an engineer daily and often admires others who do the same—though he admires his father most. His career goals include improving his skills at software development, project management, and mentoring, while simultaneously never missing a basketball game. While Kyle has been with Priority1 for well-over a year, he encourages new employees to learn as much as you can, always do your best, and to “never be afraid to take a chance on something you believe in.”
A family man at heart, Kyle is surrounded by a large support system: two boxer pups, his spouse, Kaylee—who is currently expecting another child next month, Bennett—and his son, Dean. He spends most of his free time grilling and enjoying cartoons with his son.
“The people at P1 [are what I love the most]. You work hard like any job, but you always feel welcomed, appreciated, and like you are part of the family…It’s been the best job I’ve ever had, without a doubt.” — Kyle Morton, Software Engineer
From all of us at Priority1, thank you Kyle for your hard work and commitment to making our IT department as seamless as possible. Tune in next quarter for another employee highlight!
