Meet the Team: Gavin Lathrop

Gavin Lathrop is the newest member of the AM Transport Services team. Referred to AMT by his friend Derek, Gavin’s been here only a couple of weeks, and we thought it was a good time to introduce him to the customers and carriers we work with on a daily basis.


Music: Rock music is my favorite.

Show: Probably Star Wars: The Clone Wars because I’m a big Star Wars nerd.

Performer: I’m not really sure about a favorite performer. I do like Uma Thurman in Kill Bill a lot.

Podcast: I don’t really listen to podcasts.

Sport: I do enjoy watching football, but I don’t really have a favorite team. I just like to watch a good game.

Color: Grey

Beer or Wine: Neither. I don’t really like them.

Skittles or M&Ms: Peanut M&Ms

Power Ranger: I’m not sure. I just remember one Power Rangers movie when I was a kid and they go skydiving, and one of the guys has a snowboard while they’re skydiving which really doesn’t make much sense.

If someone gave you an elephant, what would you do with it?

I guess I would just let it walk around and eat some grass. Probably spray it with a hose and try to cool him off. I imagine they get pretty hot. Or maybe ride on top of it if it’s cool.

Are you married? Do you have any kids?

I am not married and I do not have kids.

What do you think about or listen to when you’re alone, driving in the car?

Nothing in particular, just whatever is on my mind. I listen to just about anything too, but I would say my favorite kind of music is rock. I’ve been listening to a lot of Metallica lately.

If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be?

Killer Whale

What’s the best Christmas gift you ever received and/or given?

This one pair of really nice gloves I took skiing was the best I ever received. The best Christmas gift I’ve ever given was probably a bunch of money I gave to someone.

What do you do at AM Transport?

So far I have been emailing and calling people.

Any apps, gadgets you cannot live without while at work?

My phone and adjustable height desk.

What are you currently reading? Do you have any recommendations?

I’m not currently reading anything. I haven’t read a book since high school. I think I borrowed Dune from Derek, but I never started it.

How do you recharge?

I just play some video games and listen to music. Maybe watch a movie and sleep.

Do you have a superpower?


What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

You’ve got time

Any parting thoughts on garden gnomes?

Nope. Just that Gnomeo and Juliet is not a bad movie.

Thanks to Gavin for being a good sport!
