This week before Christmas, we are spotlighting one of our unsung heroes, Josh Brumley. If you happen to be in procurement for a nuclear power plant located almost anywhere within the continental United States, Josh has probably assisted in pulling off some logistics miracles for you at some point. Keeping up with the demands as a part of the Airways Utilities Division headed up by Devin Scroggins is not for the faint of heart.
Josh is a relative beginner with Airways, having completed 3 years in September and heading into his 4th year with the company, but after only a year working in night operations, Josh was recruited by the Utilities Division – primarily because of his excellent work ethic and eagerness to learn.
Says Scroggins, “Josh has quickly become an integral part of the Utilities Division, and we are happy to have him as a part of our team.” High praise from the Director that manages some of the most highly expedited and demanding shipments handled by the company. The feeling is mutual too; Josh says one of his favorite things about his job includes the people he works with.
Logistics is nothing new to Josh. Prior to Airways, he was coaching elite baseball teams in Dallas, TX – a total of 5 to be exact – one 8 year-old team, two 12-13 and one 15-year-old team. In addition, there was a 16-18 year-old team – the showcase team – which along with the others – traveled all over the U.S. playing in Select Tournaments. Josh also provided private baseball lessons to youngsters while on the road. Having made baseball his life for a number of years, it wouldn’t be an understatement to say, Josh Brumley is “a total baseball guy” when he’s not doing his now favorite thing – hanging out with his wife Tori, and his new baby girl, Chandler.
Nowadays, when Josh isn’t busy “hitting one out of the park” for Airways on a shipment for a power plant, he aspires at some point to “be the old guy in the chair falling asleep to baseball.” Well earned Josh!
