As a Senior Agent Recruiter, Chris Moore introduces potential team members to the Tallgrass ecosystem, illustrating why our unparalleled culture is an ideal environment to build a thriving freight broker career. “Recruiting has been a part of my professional career my entire life,” Chris shares. “It’s not only fulfilling, meaningful work, but I love the daily exposure to different individuals and personalities.”
While Chris is a relative newcomer to the freight and logistics field, he’s a veteran in the recruitment world. Born and raised in La Porte, Indiana, Chris began his career as the Director of Admissions role at La Lumiere, a boarding and day school in Indiana founded by his father in 1963. It was there he fell in love with recruiting. From La Lumiere, he continued recruiting at schools around the country, including outside Chicago, Massachusetts and Arizona.
“What I enjoy most about recruiting is, at the end of the day, you can walk out the door knowing you helped someone.”
Chris then segued into an Athletic Recruiting role with NCSA as a National Head Scout, drawing on his 20+ years as a competitive soccer athlete. After continuing his career as the Legal Recruiting Manager for Robert Half, Chris took an opportunity with Beacon Hill Staffing Group. Chris had only begun leading a team to establish Arizona’s market presence and open a regional office when the COVID-19 pandemic struck, putting the launch of the new office on an indefinite hold.
What transpired from there was a big win for all parties involved, as Chris became part of the Tallgrass Freight family. “Because of my educational upbringing, I find myself naturally drawn to learning new industries,” he says. “I find myself excited to wake up and dig into the logistics world each and every single day!”
Tallgrass immediately stood out to Chris because of the company culture. “From a cultural perspective, Tallgrass is spot on,” he says. “Everyone I’ve met, from the interview process on forward, is exceptional. I also feel inherently aligned with Tallgrass’s Midwestern roots. What I enjoy most about recruiting is, at the end of the day, you can walk out the door knowing you helped someone. That’s always the silver lining.”
Outside of work, Chris is happily married and a proud father of a grown daughter and son, who both share his passion for athletics and professional drive. A self-proclaimed life-long Grateful Dead fan, Chris says music was a large part of his upbringing and remains something he’s passionate about to this day. He is also an avid cycler, biking between 70 and 80 miles per week.
