Uncommon Personalities: Meet Ryan Campbell

December 10, 2013
Ryan Campbell | UncommonGoods
Ryan Campbell, UncommonGoods Senior Manager
My hometown is……
Middletown, NJ

I’m inspired by….
My girlfriend, my family, and people who achieve greatness through hard work.

I’m passionate about…
Traveling and experiencing new cultures, great music, doing the right thing, and the New York football Giants.

My favorite process in the warehouse is……
Developing team members into great leaders and seeing them own the process themselves.

Something I’ve done in my life that I’m especially proud of is……
Recently, my brothers and I have set up a charity organization in honor of my mother, who passed away from terminal breast cancer this past January. Our goal is to provide financial support to families who are dealing with a terminal or life threatening illness. Our first annual golf outing helped us to raise over $15,000, which will go towards a family in need during the holidays.

An uncommon fact about me……
I played high school football with Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno.

Working at UncommonGoods I’ve learned……
Many things, but one thing that stands out so far to me is that it’s possible to run a company where the bottom line is not the top priority at all times.

Would you rather… Have a great personal chef, or a great personal trainer (assuming money was no object)?
Personal chef, all the way. I would recruit one of our team members, Roland Glenn, who tears it up in the kitchen!

Uncommon Personalities: Meet Victoria Golann

Victoria Golann, UncommonGoods Senior Manager–Data Analytics
My home town is…
Middletown, NJ

The word that best describes me is…

I’m inspired by…  
People who create things.

If I could know anything without having to study it, it would be…
Hmm, I think half the fun of knowing something is learning it, but it wouldn’t hurt if I could master the languages of whichever countries I plan on visiting next.

My favorite place to hang out in New York City is…
Definitely the running path along the Hudson River. It goes all the way from Battery Park to Inwood, and I always get a running high as I pass by all its sites, sculptures, and views.

An uncommon fact about me…  
I was an engineering major in college, but I took printmaking classes whenever I could. Intaglio and woodcut are my favorite techniques, and I love making mixed media collages with my prints.

Working at UncommonGoods, I’ve learned…  
How important it is to find a work culture that fits your personality and views. We have an amazing team here, and a company that really cares about its customers and employees. I look forward to coming into work every day.

With a pile of stuff in front of me I would make…
You’re given a Potholder Loom with bottomless Lotta Loops refills, a box of thumb tacks,  6 salvaged window frames missing the glass, and a megaphone.

I’d sell it all for some ice cream at Ample Hills in Brooklyn!
