As a Tallgrass Freight Co. Senior Recruiter, Stan Duncan loves applying his recruitment expertise in an industry where he hits the ground running each day. With a background in government, STEM startups and entrepreneurship, Stan brings the drive with him to lead new Tallgrass agents into the culture we’re cultivating.
Since day one, Stan has been enthusiastic about serving Tallgrass. “I like learning, I’m up for the challenge and Tallgrass is the real deal — so let’s do it!” he says.
Stan enjoys the ability to work independently and as part of the team, and appreciates that TGF is there every step of the way. He approaches his work with transparency, honesty and a personal touch always.
His startup background fuels his desire to help freight agents take their businesses to new heights, and Stan was immediately drawn to the startup feel of Tallgrass and impressed with the strides Tallgrass has made since its founding.
