Keith has been part of the team for nearly 4 years, and works out of Tundra’s Calgary office in our Shipping/Receiving department! We appreciate his positive and energetic approach to life, his unique sense of humour, and the passion and leadership he brings to his work!

We connected with Keith and asked him to answer some personal questions about himself. Here is what we found:

What does your role at Tundra encompass?

I work in the Shipping/Receiving department in the Calgary warehouse. Before the product gets to the client it must come through the warehouse where it will be inspected and shipped back out. We maintain inventory control and use the forklift to pick things up, and put things down!

What do you do at Tundra, and in what circumstance would I come to you?

If you’re checking the status on a delivery, if you need your order to ship out, or if you need to check if we have an item in stock.

What is one professional skill you’re currently working on?

Supply Chain Management.

What is your most loved local restaurant?

Sushi is the food of the gods, and Kinjo (in Calgary) is the place to go with small kids. There’s a large one in Country Hills where the walls are covered with history’s greatest paintings. It’s fantastic!

Where is your favourite place in the world and why?

I believe New Zealand is the most incredible place. Amazing scenery and people. Living in the mountains of the South Island will change your viewpoint in more than just geographic terms.

What is one thing (other than your smartphone) that you can’t leave the house without?

I can’t go anywhere without a bottle of water or two. The air is so dry here. There are times that I long for the soaking wet climate of my home (Ireland) so that my throat doesn’t feel like I’ve eaten a spoonful of sand.

What is the first concert you ever went to?

You Oughta Know my first concert was Alanis Morissette, in Dublin,1999.

What is your hometown and where do you currently live?

My home town is a small village called Clonbullogue in Offaly, Ireland. The population is about 400 people. Fair to say there isn’t much to do but when you’re basically living in a field there’s plenty of nature to enjoy. We do have a parachute club though, so if you’re up for some sky-diving, you’re in luck. The Calgary community that I live in has 9000 people so it’s quite the change!

What do you enjoy most about working at Tundra?

The culture at Tundra is really like nowhere else. If you dread the idea of going to work when you wake up in the morning, come work here. We have the cure.

Thanks, Keith, for all that you do!
