When it comes to traveling, there is no telling how many frequent flyer miles this guy has put in. He is one of our tradeshow representatives and for the past ten years, has travelled the United States attending an innumerable amount of trade shows. You would never guess that Josh Collins is apprehensive about flying!
Josh started his career at Airways in June of 2007, after previously working at the Walmart Optical Lab for over four years. When an opportunity presented itself to work at Airways Freight, he welcomed the undertaking. Josh has a strong appreciation for the great relationship he has with his co-workers and has said he would not trade his Airways family for anything. Each day is an opportunity for him to meet and talk to new people, and there is never a feeling of monotony.
Josh was born in Oklahoma City and raised in Fayetteville, Arkansas. His Mother was the youngest of twelve children, so there were always family gatherings to attend. Josh is not the only Collins family member to be employed by Airways Freight. His cousin Jason works in the trade show department.
When Josh isn’t on the road or in the office, he likes to spend his time outdoors. He enjoys camping, barbequing, fishing, floating, riding motorcycles and four wheeling. He also loves to hear live music and appreciates time spent with family and friends. Josh has an extensive collection of pocket knives that he has collected from the age of five. His collection exists of 68 knives total. He is also very interested in learning different languages from Italian to American Sign Language.
Being away on business much of his time, Josh has taken to heart a quote by Robert Frost. – “Home is the place where, when you go there, they have to take you in.” Some of his favorite places to visit are Downtown Chicago, Seattle, and Hawaii. But one of Josh’s favorite destinations is Austin, Texas. He loves the great food, music and all-around atmosphere.
Whether Josh is in the office, or on the road, his dedication and commitment to Airways is always synchronous with his ability to succeed. He represents Airways with the kind of leadership needed to persevere in the trade show industry. We applaud his achievements.
