Meet The Team: Kody Staskey
A true native to Canton, Ohio, Kody Staskey has embodied the blue-collar attributes his hometown is known for. Graduating from GlenOak High School in 2012, Staskey found his way to DeliverThat after grinding his way to an Associate's Degree in Marketing from Stark State, an internship through Northwestern Mutual, and a marketing gig with local Cost Sharing Solutions(CSS). At CSS, Kody would meet his now girlfriend, Autumn, and her daughter Grace, who he has been with for almost two years now. This past spring, Kody moved his family into a new home, as well as adopting a beautiful new dog, Ozzie.
Joining DeliverThat in November 2019 was a huge help to our team and Kody himself. Brought on during the holiday season, our new hire was immediately thrown into the fire. He recounted, “I loved the fast-paced environment and the competitive nature of the people and business here”. We appreciate his memory of the chaos we once were and where we are now.
Beginning his time with DeliverThat as a Dispatch
Specialist, Kody began to understand the ins and outs of what was done here and how to do it well. Quickly climbing the ranks, he was promoted to Restaurant Relations Specialist in July of 2020. From there, Kody would begin to build his own book of business where he now oversees over 15 restaurant accounts. When asked what made him invest in DeliverThat, he was quick to answer, “since being interviewed by Darien(DeliverThat President), I’ve come to see everyone here as a go-getter. I believe in the vision and since I’ve been here, we’ve already seen extensive growth”.
Now almost two years in, Kody has done some building himself within DeliverThat. What started out as a rec league softball team for him, turned into a handful of the office joining in as well. With four other co-workers now being teammates, the comradery has only continued. Not to mention, DeliverThat has now become a family affair for Kody. His brother, Kolton, was just hired as a Recruiting Specialist this past April. If you were wondering, the Staskey’s are a notoriously rowdy bunch in and out of the office.
To already attempt to summarize the career Kody has begun with DeliverThat would be an overall disservice to him and the work he has put in. What he has shown he is willing to do as an employee, friend and leader has been nothing short of awe-inspiring. Reflecting on what he’s appreciated most about DT since the beginning, Kody explained, “the culture and the open door policy here is something different. To be able to speak with every single person in the company about literally anything and everything is difficult to explain how important that is”. We couldn’t have said it better.
It goes without saying that DeliverThat has been made better since bringing on Mr. Staskey and the second one as well. We can only fantasize about where we’ll be another 2 years down the road, but wherever that is, we’re all excited for the journey.
