Trent Flanary is the Vice President of Growth and Development here at Tallgrass Freight. Trent spends his days helping agents grow their business in any way possible, strategizing with sales and creating exciting incentives that encourage agents to reach the next level.
“Joining Tallgrass is one of the best professional decisions I’ve made in my career,” Trent says. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the company, the people, the culture, the vision.”
After a brief period coaching high school football, Trent entered the freight industry and became a top sales performer, advancing from Team Lead to Vice President of Sales within eight years. Trent enjoyed being a significant part of that company’s growth and creating strategies that continued to propel the organization forward.
“Joining Tallgrass is one of the best professional decisions I’ve made in my career.”
The candid feedback Trent received from agents at Tallgrass about their close relationships the company’s leadership was what sold him on making the move to Tallgrass, and he jumped at the opportunity to be a part of a company with such a great culture.
“Here, you see the results of your work at the end of the day. You can see the impact you have on the business. And I love that!” Trent says. “Being able to help people and help them grow professionally and personally motivates me.”
During his off time, Trent enjoys spending time with his two daughters, whether that’s traveling to the Bahamas or going to a sporting event.
