What are the services you use the most (or are looking forward to using) from the Columbus Chamber?
Being a Chamber member for the past four years has enabled me to create visibility into the small parcel space by speaking and working with members of the chamber to educate them with the various nuances that is small parcel shipping. The reason I do what I do at Reveel is to put money back into companies operating budgets with no out of pocket costs.
How do you stay engaged with trends that you see in your industry?
I listen to every earnings call from both FedEx and UPS, Read magazines and articles pertaining to the industry, and attend various shows and events.

My company, Reveel, takes great pride in hiring the best people out there. We have a very energetic, hungry, positive environment in which promotes efficiency and efficacy. When hiring new people, we look for people that directly align with our core values.
We have a great time together and we often get together for company retreats and meetups. We strongly believe that having a tight community will ultimately guide us to be better employees and most importantly human beings.
What does it take to be a successful employee at your company?
What defines success at Reveel isn’t sales numbers or quotas. It is being genuine and honest with the people that we have the pleasure of meeting and speaking with. Putting our clients first is our number one priority.
What makes Columbus such a great place to do business?
Columbus is such a great place to do business for many reasons. First, it is the quality of people. The people in Columbus are some of the most open minded and genuine individuals in the country. Second, the rate at which the city is expanding gives other companies the chance to relocate. When you have businesses wanted to relocate to a city it always helps not only the local economy but also the chance to meet new people.
