With almost a decade of experience in recruiting, Chuck Gay loves the rewarding feeling of introducing new freight agents to Tallgrass and watching their lives change for the better. “My favorite part of recruiting is 100% the people,” Chuck says.
Chuck’s career began in technology sales. After 20 years of selling everything from pagers and cell phones to internet connections and restaurant technology equipment, he found a new passion: recruiting freight agents.
Chuck was working for a local freight company when he first heard about Tallgrass. He even tried to recruit TGF agents to join a different company — but Chuck kept striking out! There was no convincing Tallgrass agents to leave, he found!
“Tallgrass was doing it all right!” he says. “I figured if you can’t beat them, join them.” And the rest is history! “I was very excited about the opportunity Tallgrass offered me,” Chuck shares. “After speaking with the team, I am really happy to be here.”
“At Tallgrass Freight, there’s no jumping through hoops to hire the right people. We get the opportunity to bring them aboard right away.”
His favorite aspects of Tallgrass include the uplifting culture, family-oriented environment and the team’s overall approach to support. “I’ve received so much support from colleagues and everyone goes out of their way to communicate,” Chuck says. “Watching agents go from W2 employees to making six figures is truly a great feeling.”
Chuck is based out of Buffalo, New York, and loves spending time with his wife and life-long friends. He has two adult children and a few four-legged family members! Outside of Tallgrass, Chuck enjoys traveling, attending sporting events and concerts and hitting the links for a round of golf on beautiful summer and fall days in Buffalo.
