Centerline is passionate about connecting drivers with the right companies. An essential component in making that happen is building a strong team that embodies that passion as their own. Constance Salters is an example of this.
Constance has been an Account Manager at Centerline since 2009, and has 15 years of experience under her belt.
She grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but got tired of the snow and ended up finding a career in Tampa, Florida as a recruiter. She has persevered through good and bad times always working hard to connect customers with the best drivers available. Her secret to success, she says, is being able to work well with the people around her.
“You have to have a good team,” says Constance. “I give 200% all of the time.” She explains that when the people you work with have the same passion as you do, you have a complete team. “It’s like magic: everything falls into place.”
According to Constance, the most rewarding part of her job is finding that perfect match of driver and customer. “My strongest skillset is that most of the time I can look at a driver and know what customer he or she would fit with within a five minute conversation. It’s a combination of what they say, how they act, previous experiences and personality. Since I know the customers so well, I know what would be a good match.”
She explains that when it comes to establishing a relationship with customers, building trust is a must. “Integrity first and foremost every single day. If you’re honest and you’re sincere, you will build loyalty and commitment.” Customers are reaching out to her regularly, and she does her best to be there for them – even on her breaks. “I just try to be myself and always be honest about what I have and about what I can offer. When you’re able to sell to people that have a need, everything else falls into place.”
In true team spirit, Constance is quick to give a shout out to her fellow coworkers. She explains how Centerline’s centralized support team plays a large part in her success. “My support person is incredible. We’re totally in sync with expectations for each other.”
In addition to her support at work, Constance says her mother has been a key supporter in her life. Not only did she build her confidence, but taught her the value of integrity.
It is evident that hard work and integrity are ingrained in Constance’s life. Centerline customers have often noted that she, “will go out of her way to help with whatever needs we may have.”
We are proud and thankful to have her on the team!
