As the Vice President of Growth & Development, Sean provides new Tallgrass agents with personalized coaching and mentorship designed to help them assimilate into the TGF culture and community.

With more than 10 years of experience as a manager, freight broker and agency owner in the logistics industry, Sean is a valuable asset to new members of the Tallgrass family — providing strategic insight into best practices on organizing, tracking and managing their business.

Today, Sean partners with new agents during their first 90 days at TGF. “Our goal is to mitigate any obstacles they’re running into, celebrate their wins, helping them replicate successful habits, be a sounding board and provide the resources needed to thrive,” Sean says.

“I wish I had made the decision to join the company much earlier in my career!”

Having been in a new agent’s shoes before, Sean is passionate about helping them grow. Sean’s daily work running his own freight agency as an independent Tallgrass agent further bolsters his ability to develop and support new agents, ensuring they have resources to bolster their growth trajectory. It’s all about helping agents thrive from day one at Tallgrass.

Sean shares Tallgrass’s passion for relationships, trust and camaraderie. It’s a perspective Sean considers refreshing. From the first days of his Tallgrass interview process in 2018 through today, Sean has always admired the open communication, transparent expectations and supportive atmosphere the company provides. “David, Damon and Mike sold me on this great opportunity,” he says, “and have stayed true to their word, each and every single day.”

Sean is humbled by the opportunities he’s had at Tallgrass. “I wish I had made the decision to join the company much earlier in my career!” he says. “However, I am so grateful for being welcomed into the TGF community. I was given the tools and support to build my own agency and now I’m excited to continue my professional growth and development in this new role. I’m a really lucky guy.” 

When he’s not serving his freight clients or mentoring new agents, Sean enjoys fishing and being outdoors with his wife of 11 years and two children: a seven-year-old son, Brooks, and six-year-old daughter, Elle. He also likes to tackle woodworking projects around the home, from quick fixes to building custom living room cabinets
