Meet Brayden

Brayden is a Maintenance Supervisor in one of our distribution centres, where he's in charge of ensuring that all material handling equipment in the DC is in proper working order and he's in charge of inspiring his team to exceed all expectations? It's a skill some Maintenance Supervisors learn in college, but others acquire it during their two years of previous maintenance, warehousing, distribution centre leadership experience. What is the secret to great leadership? Brayden says it's collaboration. He believes that a team is greater than the sum of its parts. He's built a highly diverse team that ambitiously pursues their goals. And we have a funny feeling we know where they learned such behaviour. That's the thing about great leaders. People follow in their footsteps.
