MEET PATRICK

Atran Freight is extremely fortunate to have the talented, wonderful group that it does. Without these individuals, we wouldn’t see the success that we do today.

What is your role at the company?

Sales.

How long have you worked at Atran?

2 years.

What do you enjoy most about working at Atran?

My favorite thing about working at Atran is that I get to talk with people all the time, whether it's a customer or a prospect. I also enjoy going out and meeting customers in person and seeing what it is that they are shipping. After seeing all of the work that goes into the simplest things, it really makes you appreciate both the little and big things.

What do you do for fun?

For fun, I enjoy watching and playing just about every sport. My favorite sports to play are rugby, soccer, and basketball if I can make a shot. I am a fan of all Detroit sports team but favor the Lions and Tigers. I married into a family that are very much fans of all Notre Dame athletics, which is never a problem with me unless they are playing MSU.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

Throughout high school and college I worked the front desk at the YMCA—first in Port Huron, MI then in Jackson, MI. The YMCA will always be near and dear to me because while working at the Jackson location, I met my wife.
