Uncommon Personalities: Meet Ryan Campbell

December 10, 2013
Ryan Campbell | UncommonGoods
Ryan Campbell, UncommonGoods Operations 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!
