What Brought James into the spotlight:  

James has played an integral role in helping increase the transload business at the Sand Springs Transload facility, and improving customer service for our existing transload customers.  As the Terminal Manager of OLS located at the Sand Springs Railway Company, James is responsible for the primary handling of reload services and inventory management for customers such as Ranger Steel, Mommoet and Webco Industries, Inc.

 What James’ likes about working at OmniTRAX:

I really enjoy the diversity of challenges that come with working for OmniTRAX. No two days are ever the same. One day I may be putting together an operation plan for an upcoming project or out talking with new prospects or existing customers and the next day I am out unloading railcars or assisting with the development of new properties. Most importantly I enjoy the teamwork and ownership that we all share at OmniTRAX, as a team we are always pushing to do greater and become better.


I am married to my beautiful wife Ashley and we have two little girls McKinley (4) and Maci (2).


My favorite thing to do is to take my daughters out to their favorite park here in Tulsa and then to Baskin Robins for their favorite rain bow ice cream.


Hunting, fishing, family lake trips, cooking out, going to the gym with my wife, and reading to my daughters.
