This month on our blog we are featuring the GAMMA Supply Chain Coordinator, Roman Kukielka. Read the interview below to learn more about Roman!
What is your job role at GAMMA and how long have you worked here?
I am a Supply Chain Coordinator and have been at Gamma for a little over six months!
How did you come to work for GAMMA?
The role seemed like the perfect opportunity to grow professionally and personally while applying my degree in Supply Chain. I also get to work in the sports industry, which is awesome!
What is your favorite part about working at GAMMA?
It’s the best of both worlds: working for a company that is established and an industry leader, yet it feels like a start-up that is still in the growth phase due to the sheer popularity of pickleball.
What are the three words you’d use to describe GAMMA?
Innovative, exciting, and customer-focused.
Do you play tennis or pickleball?
I picked up playing pickleball after I started working at GAMMA. I still only casually play but would like to play more frequently.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?
Going to sporting events, traveling to as many East Coast cities as possible and spending time with friends and family.
What is something that people would be surprised to know about you?
I lived on the West Coast my entire life before my wife and I moved to Pittsburgh (site unseen, but with extensive research and data)!
If you were stuck on an island and could only have three items, what would they be?
A TV for sports, my Steelers jersey, a desalination device.
What is a quote you live by?
“Opportunities don’t happen, you create them” – Chris Grosser
Favorite food: Smoked Salmon
Favorite place to visit: Charleston, South Carolina
Favorite holiday: Christmas
Cats or dogs: I used to be just a dog guy. Then, my wife wanted to get a cat. There was some hesitancy initially since my only experience with a cat previously was an incident that involved getting scratched. However, now, I love cats and can only, in good conscience, say both cats AND dogs.
Favorite movie: Whiplash
Messy or organized: Pretty much 50/50
