Meet Our Newest Employees – April 2016

ZMac Employees Kerry and Randy

As ZMac continues to grow, we welcome our newest employees, Kerry and Randy! Kerry and Randy opened up our newest office in Atlanta, Georgia in March. Help us welcome them both!

[ZMac Transportation Solutions] ZMac: Hi Kerry! Hi Randy! As our newest employees, we’d like to welcome you to the team and introduce you to everyone. Let’s start with something easy: what’s something you’re known for?
[Kerry Bennett] KB: Thanks! I’m glad to be on the team. Hm… something I’m known for is being a movie connoisseur.
ZMac: Interesting. Are we talking going to the movie theaters or Netflix?
KB: Both, but I go to the movies about twice a week.
ZMac: Wow! That’s a lot of movies. What’s the last movie you watched, at home or in the theaters?
KB: “Deadpool” and it was great. Easily the best movie of the year so far.
ZMac: I haven’t seen “Deadpool” yet, but I’ve heard good things about it. Any movies you’re looking forward to seeing in the theaters?
KB: Absolutely. I’m excited for “Capitan America: Civil War” in early May, “X-Men: Apocalypse” in late May, “Ghostbusters” in July, and “Suicide Squad” in August.
ZMac: Well now we know who you to go to for movie recommendations and reviews! Randy, what’s something that people would be surprised to know about you?
[Randy Aragon] RA: I think people would be surprised to know that I’m a certified personal trainer and nutritionist through the International Sports Sciences Association.
ZMac: That takes some serious dedication. How did you get into personal training?
RA: It definitely takes commitment. I specialized in hand-to-hand combat in the United States Marine Corps. From there I trained in karate, muay thai, jui-jitsu, and krav maga.
ZMac: How long have you been a certified trainer? 
RA: Nine years. My expertise is in baseball, football, cross training, and mixed martial arts. I owned Battlegrounds MMA Studio in Georgia for a few years, too.
KB: [clears throat] Well, compared to Randy’s answer, my answer seems a little…
ZMac: …a little?
KB: I’m just going to say it. I’m scared of the dark.
ZMac: Okay. What level of scared of the dark are you: nightlight while you sleep or won’t leave the house after the sun goes down?
KB: [laughs] I definitely leave the house after dark, but you’ll find my TV or the closet light on all night.
ZMac: I know a lot of people who sleep with the TV on and now I’m starting to wonder if it’s for the same reason as you.
KB: You might be surprised. 
ZMac: What would you say are the top highlights of your life?

KB: When my brother and I graduated college and having my mother come home from war. She had a few tours in Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan while I was in high school and college.
ZMac: Those are some big life changing moments. Where did you and your brother attend college?
KB: I graduated from the University of West Georgia in December 2010 with a degree in Business Management. My brother graduated from the University of Georgia this past December with a degree in Economics. I’m proud to say that he graduated with a 4.0 GPA and is studying for the LSAT.
RA: I’d say the highlights of my life have been serving in the United States Marine Corps, having children and grandchildren, and finding God.
ZMac: Randy, how many children and grandchildren do you have?
RA: I have three kids. Jason is my oldest at 32 with four kids of his own. Next is my 19-year-old adopted son, Christian, who is in his second year at Andrew College. I also have a 19-year-old daughter, Kaitlyn, who’s in her first year at University of West Georgia.
ZMac: It sounds like you guys have a full house during the holidays!
RA: We absolutely do. Nothing makes me happier than when I’m spending time with my children and grandchildren.
ZMac: We like to throw in an off-the-wall question, just for fun. What do you think your spirit animal is?
RA: I’ll let Kerry take the lead on this one. 
KB: Wolf. No question.
ZMac: That was a quick response. Have you thought about this before?
KB: Well, not exactly, but it fits perfectly. I’m a night owl who likes to hunt. In a wolf pack you have the option to lead or to follow. One of my favorite quotes is, “he who cannot be a good follower cannot be a good leader” by Aristotle.
ZMac: With that answer, I think you’ll fit in perfectly on #TeamZMac. Welcome to the team, Kerry and Randy!
