“A couple of days into my new career at Fleet Feet, I knew I could fit in here. I like getting work done but enjoy a good time with good people. Our lone warehouse at the time was about the size of my 2 car garage and now I run one of our three Distribution Centers. It has been quite the experience and I look forward to more amazing accomplishments for the company as well as for myself.”
