Employee of the Quarter: Nathan Sebren
As Priority1 closes its record-breaking first quarter of 2021, it is time for another Employee of the Quarter highlight. This quarter, Priority1 takes great pride in showcasing the hard work of Nathan Sebren, as one of P1’s dedicated Truckload Logistics Specialists. Prior to joining Priority1 over six years ago, Nathan graduated from Bryant High School and currently resides in the Benton area of Arkansas. His position includes aiding the Truckload Sales team and Agent Channel in quoting and setting up shipments, while also producing the best solutions for Priority1’s customers. Nathan has proved to his team time and time again that he has an unparalleled dedication to constant growth and the grit for success. In December of 2020, which he called the best month of his career, Nathan successfully partnered with a customer that provides goods to Amazon. His motivation for success stems from an innate nature to provide for his family.
“I look at [my position] as a career, not just a job. As far as getting it right? I’m not sure if I have it right just yet, but I still learn every single day how I can better myself to make the best impact possible with our customers.” — Nathan Sebren, Truckload Logistics Specialist
Nathan is driven to make a positive impact on a day-to-day basis. This originates from the best advice he has received. “Even the hardest problems you face have an ending, good or bad. Make the best of what is presented to you and work on a resolution instead of stressing out over what happened.”
Nathan’s father is a monumental influencer in his life and has been “a great help in showing [Nathan] how to be a great human being and love anyone and everyone, even when it’s hard.” Outside of the office, Nathan enjoys getting back to nature and partakes in hunting and fishing seasonally. Nathan also shared an interesting and brow-raising fact with the P1 team. While island camping in his youth, he was tragically struck by lightning on the outskirts of Lake Ouachita, located in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Though Nathan made a full recovery, the memory sticks with him daily.
“I couldn’t be prouder of Nathan’s personal and professional growth over the past 6 years. Nathan was shaking as he answered the phone on the first day, and now he is one of the most respected members of our Truckload Operations team. There is nothing more rewarding as a manager than to see an employee like Nathan be recognized for his hard work and success.” — Matt Watson, Truckload Logistics Manager
Nathan hopes to work his way up into management in the near future. He often recalls the beginning portion of his career when the Truckload team consisted of just a handful of individuals. He looks forward to additional growth inside of P1 and more record-breaking quarters. Nathan’s best advice for new hires is to simply “be yourself and do not be afraid to ask questions.” From all of us at Priority1, thank you, Nathan, for your hard work and commitment to going above and beyond for our Truckload team. Tune in next quarter for another employee highlight!
