Anthony sat in his interview back in 2013 and shared his fear of bees, his desire to not work outside, and when asked where he saw himself in 5 years answered “in the mirror.” It was about that time that BAT decided this young one could use some grooming but will bring the humor so we’ll take the chance! Little did we know the work we’d have cut out for ourselves, or the joy he would bring through the past seven years. Anthony has grown so much since joining our BAT family. He continues to listen, learn, and make us laugh day in and day out. He is the type of person that is not afraid to challenge the status quo and find a new way to make everyone successful. He’s filled with a fire to be the best, and works daily to reach that level and make sure those around him are doing the same. He’s always available to share his knowledge and continues to be an asset to help the new young ones as they grow too. We know Anthony sees himself in the mirror every day . . . but we see him continuing to grow and leaving a legacy at BAT that far exceeds anything he could have ever imagined. Thanks for being a strong member of our team Anthony!2020-12-18_0003.jpg

Joe brings a level of energy and spirit to BAT that is practically unmatched! His go getter attitude shines through in everything he does. He is passionate about the success of BAT, our carriers, our customers, and isn’t afraid to face the hard stuff to make everyone successful. He shows us how to confront situations from all angles and uncover new ways of thinking and doing things. Joe loves to play along in all our fun and games and has a personality that fits in perfectly. We hit the nail on the head with team spirit when Joe joined our team! Thanks for being a fun addition to our team, never backing down, and always looking for the right way to make everyone successful Joe! Keep growing!

Ralph joined our BAT family with a drive and determination that remains unmatched to this day. He came in on fire, ready to learn, ready to grow, ready to conquer . . . and he’s done just that! In his first three months of employment he quickly made his mark and moved in to a leadership role while he continued to learn the industry and the BAT way. After 4.5 years he took over his current role as our Operations Manager, and continues to work side by side with the other members of the executive team to pave the way for all future BATs. Setting the standard, teaching the team, and going to battle every day to ensure our Carriers, Customers, and Team Members are successful. Ralph’s commitment to BAT is untouchable and through all the years he remains a constant source of guidance, sarcasm, and dependability. We are beyond blessed to have Ralph helping to create the future of BAT and we know as long as we follow, there will be a lot of hard work, good times, and even more giggles along the way. Thanks for being such an important part of our family Ralph!

Cindy is an original BAT, having joined our family only a few months after we opened. After working for a few years with Co-Founders Shawn and Jarrod prior to BAT, we knew what she had to offer and we wanted her on our team! Over the past 11 1/2 years she has proven that we weren’t wrong. She is committed to the success of BAT and all our customers and carriers. She is a dedicated team member who looks out for everyone, even while working from a remote office. We are grateful for her grit and never give up attitude, and can’t wait to see what the next 11+ years have in store for her!

Louis is the type of person who isn’t afraid to let his hair down, or change it’s color, to ensure his personality shines through! He joined our BAT family and immediately fit in as a fun loving, reliable, willing to learn, go-getter. He’s ready to help out wherever needed, consistently is looking to grow, and a huge support to his direct team, and our team as a whole. Louis’s commitment to BAT is evident daily as he works diligently to support our customers, carriers, and our team. Thanks for being a great addition to our team Louis! We can’t wait to see what the next few years have in store for your growth and development at BAT!

Of course we had to celebrate our new favorite holiday, National Donut Day! We stopped by Bob’s Donuts in Midtown and grabbed a few dozen for everyone in the office. They did not disappoint!!

When Chet joined the BAT family in 2015 he instantly fit right in and has continued to grow over the years. He’s passionate about his work, committed to BAT, his team, our customers and carriers, and wants nothing more than for everyone to be successful. Chet has made sure to join in on all our BAT fun and although he may look a little serious on the surface, he knows how to have a good time! Thanks for being such an important part of our team Chet!


Over the past 6 years we’ve gotten the chance to watch Jon grow from a silly, energetic, over the top, hard working Broker . . . to a silly, energetic, over the top, hard working Team Leader. He’s the first to help bring the fun and ensure that no day ends without a smile and maybe a new fun joke about Jon or memory of his epic dance moves. He brings a true level of commitment to his work, and the entire team while taking the time necessary to ensure the job gets done. Every carrier he works with should feel they have Jon in their corner, rooting for them every step of the way. We are proud to have him on our team, helping us grow, and building the future of BAT.2020-12-15_0002.jpg
