Pace Culture Warrior Daniel Johnson

Pace Culture Warrior Daniel Johnson

A Mission to Always Improve

Pace Culture Warrior Daniel Johnson is inspired to live up to our core value to Always improve by his wife Erin and his family.  For Daniel, every week is an effort to do one thing a little better.   

According to his nomination for Culture Warrior of the Quarter, Daniel is good at making things happen with less.  Whether pitching in to move trailers to scheduling drivers to training teammates Daniel does it and is exemplary of another Pace core value to Get the job done.  The growth in our Mobile operations is demanding, but as Logistics Manager Daniel excels at getting the best out of the team and himself.

His quest to Always improve is noted by another of his nominators for Culture Warrior of the Quarter.  “Daniel has really exploded in his job position and knowledge.  The task of the new launches in Pensacola and Mobile, combining the Pensacola warehouse with Mobile, and managing and overseeing all deliveries and workers is a great example of how he works to improve each day,” said one of his teammates.  

An Interview with our Culture Warrior

Keeping Pace found out more about what makes Daniel tick in a short interview.  

Keeping Pace: Please tell us about your role at Pace.  

Daniel: I’m a Logistics Manager for our Mobile market. I have my hands in a little bit of everything since I am held accountable for the market as a whole. Dispatch, sorting, deliveries, scheduling, and safety/fleet maintenance are the main things that I am doing. 

Keeping Pace: Can you give a little insight into your background and/or your life outside of work? What do you want your Pace family to know about you? 

Daniel: I was born in Ozark, Alabama, and my family moved to Mobile when I was three. I loved growing up on the Gulf Coast since we have three different beaches within an hour drive as well as three rivers within a twenty-minute drive. I love to be out on the water every chance that I get. My two-year wedding anniversary is coming up on February 1st. I actually met my wife while working on one of Pace’s customer docks. She was part of the transportation team there. I have been with Pace for 5 ½ years, starting as a dock worker in Mobile. Outside of work, I love to travel. 

Keeping Pace: Who or what inspires you? 

Daniel: My wife, Erin, is a huge inspiration. She is very supportive of my goals in life and wants to help me reach them. My family also inspires me to a large degree. They have tried to instill in me great values, and I strive to live up to them every day. 

Keeping Pace: What does  Always improve mean to you in the work you do with our teammates and for our customers?  

Daniel: To me, the phrase Always improve means to always strive to do better. If you are never pushing yourself then you will be stuck. If we are not always striving to always improve our processes and relationships with teammates and customers that we work with, then we are not only not living up to our core values, but we are also inhibiting our growth as a company.  

Keeping Pace: What does Always improve mean to you outside of working with Pace? 

Daniel: Outside of work, I constantly try to improve myself. Each week I challenge myself to do one thing better.  

Keeping Pace: What makes you happy about your work?  

Daniel: One of the main things that I enjoy about my work is problem solving. Every time a new problem presents itself, I look at it as an opportunity to learn and improve. I also enjoy the comradery that I have with everyone that I work with. I have definitely always been able to get more done with the help of my team, and it comes as second nature for us to work together to get the job done. Even though we cover a large region as a company, I feel as if I have great friendships that are spread between all the terminals that I interact with. 

Keeping Pace: What do you find challenging about your work, and what resources do you draw upon to help you? 

Daniel: The most challenging part about my work is organization. Mobile is helping deliver freight from both Hammond and Birmingham which can cause confusion at times. Thankfully, we have wonderful teams in both locations that can help me keep it straight. Customer Service is another huge resource that I call upon to help me effectively communicate delays and issues to our customers. 

As Pace’s business in Mobile continues to grow, it’s reassuring to know that Daniel is ready, willing, and able to help all of us Always improve! Congratulations on your Culture Warrior Award, Daniel!
