Lincoln Team - GIX Logistics

Lincoln Team

We’re a big dysfunctional family (only we can leave at five o’clock)

Navigating in this industry requires a team that can quickly adapt to our ever-changing industry. It also takes an intuitive understanding of what we do on a daily basis to make things happen. We thrive in a team environment, where we challenge each other to keep pushing forward. We understand egos won’t move the market – our hard work will.

Take a minute to enjoy the people that make up the GIX family. It’s a family composed of preps, hipsters, dweebs, bikers, dog-lovers, parents, athletes, and a lot more. We’ve composed an interesting set of people that keep our work interesting and lives less boring. You could say we’re pretty damn cool.

Sales Team

Mitch Spencer Senior Sales Representative 308-398-8598 866‐453‐9770

Meet Mitch, a down-home Nebraska guy with ranching roots and salesman dreams. Mitch grew up on a ranch in western Nebraska in the small town of Brewster where he learned the ins and outs of ranching from his dad. After graduating in the Summer of 2018 from UNK with a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management and Marketing, Mitch took a unique opportunity to work with the Sporting KC professional soccer team. Although he enjoyed the team and the work, he felt a strong pull to get back to Nebraska and landed himself a position on the sales team at GIX. He is a self admittedly very competitive, whether he is playing Madden on his Xbox, or pick-up basketball games at the YMCA. There is no doubt that his competitive spirit and love for sports makes him a great fit for our Sales Team.

Most Likely To… Heard cattle on the weekends.

Favorite Athlete and why?

Lebron James, I’m more of a cattle person but I don’t mind GOAT’s

Would you let Oprah slap you across the face?

As long as there is a new car under my chair afterwards, yes.

What is one thing GIX could do to make your day easier?

A tap room would be nice.

Cole Young Jr. Sales Rep 308-398-9530 308-398-9530

To not understand Cole's gif is to not understand Cole, we don't make the rules. Though he wanted to be a MLB player when he grew up, being a GIX Sales Rep was second best, after interning for us of course! Being a former UNK Loper Football player, he probably won't tackle you with his sales pitch but it will be hard to tell him no, very persuasive guy if we do say so. You might find Cole outside of work betting on his favorite basketball team the Creighton Blue Jays (hometown represent) or watching his favorite movie Monsters Inc. your guess is as good as ours. As determined Cole is outside the office watching his Blue Jays destroy the competition, he's equally determined to destroy his competition in the office.


Most likely to order a spicy Moscow mule when out and about.

Customer Relations Team

Jack Burmeister Customer Relations Manager 308-398-9573 866‐453‐9770

Fun fact about Jack, his name isn’t actually Jack, it’s Jon. However, since his full name is Jon Burmeister II, he's always gone by Jack because his dad was Jon as well, and two Jon's in one house is confusing. I mean, "Jon can you take out the trash?" could really confuse who is supposed to do what chores! Jack calls Omaha, NE home, but attended UNL for college. He graduated in December of 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. During college he has spent his free-time working at Target and that is where his interest in logistics and supply chain was born. We stumbled upon Jack at a practice interview session at UNL and were excited to offer him (and have him accept) a summer internship position with us during the summer of 2019. After having him here all summer, we knew he was someone we'd like to bring on full-time and he headed back for his last semester of college at UNL with a full-time sales role offer from us. As you might have guessed, he accepted and started full-time in January of 2020. Since starting, he has transitioned into another new role in our customer service department, woof, 2020 has been full of surprises and new opportunities!  He is hardworking, dedicated, and brings a fun and positive outlook to the office. 

Most likely to have two first names.

Favorite Sports Team and Why?

Currently the Cleveland Browns, but honestly, I’m just a huge fan of Baker Mayfield.

If the world was about to end you would…?

Eat Cane’s one last time.

What was your first impression of GIX?

This office is SO cool. I never imagined I would be interviewing and working in an office that had a cornhole game setup and a ping pong table.

How passionate are you about chicken nuggets?

I could eat them every day, 100%.

When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Professional Golfer

Celebrity you get mistaken for?

I went as Matt Stafford for Halloween once. Honestly, I still get people asking for my autograph.


MAX BROWN Scheduling Manager 308-398-9560 308-398-9560

Meet Max, the biggest sports guru you might possibly ever meet. A North Platte, NE native found his way to UNK for a Sports Managment degree. No, GIX isn't sports related, but we can assure you his degree has not gone to waste. You name it, the gym, golfing, football, basketball he can tell it all. Especially if you happen to bring up his favorite team the Florida Gators, I bet that could turn into the longest conversation you've ever had. Also did we mention his favorite animal just so happens to be an alligator, coincidence? We think not! As knowledgeable as he is in the sport world, he's knows just as much in the logistics world as well. Max's coworkers might describe him as the energetic one of their office but it might be from all those energy drinks he consumes in a day, just a guess though ;) No, but seriously, he has recommended GIX provide complementary energy drinks for the office so if that day ever comes, watch out for Max!


Most likely to tell you the top high school football prospects and tell you how many offers each one has and to where.


Your favorite athlete & why?
Devin Booker - smooth game and interesting off the court
What is something know one knows about you?
I used to be deathly afraid of mascots and carwashes as a child, now its just the fear my windows will magically go down anytime I get my car washed.
Biggest Pet Peeve?

A documentary is being made of your life, what celebrity is cast to play you?

You can listen to ONE band for the rest of your life, who is it?

Sadie Shuda Scheduling Manager 308-398-9545

We are excited to welcome our first Wayne State Wildcat to the GIX Logistics Internship Program! Sadie is a Palmer, Nebraska native who will enter her Junior year at Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska this fall. She is studying Business Administration with concentrations in Marketing and Management and wanted to get a hands-on internship experience this summer. Sadie is unique in that she has been hearing about GIX for the last 15 years of her life, as her Aunt Carmen is our Operations Specialist. Don’t get any funny ideas though, Sadie went through the same recruiting and interviewing process that any other intern goes through and after doing so, we knew she’d be a great fit for us. During her time with us this summer, she stepped up to the plate by taking on new tasks and assisting in our Customer Service Team. We are excited to report that Sadie is going to continue working for us throughout the Fall semester as a remote intern. Welcome to the team, Sadie, we are glad to have you!

Most likely to be mistaken as Carmen’s daughter.

What was your initial take on GIX?

The atmosphere is something different and interesting and that is what intrigued me and made me want to learn more.

What do you bring to the table?

The willingness to learn and try new things. Taking opportunities that come my way and seeing where they take me is something I enjoy.

When you’re not at GIX, what do you love to do in your free time?

Hangout with friends and family, camping, or spending time at the lake.

If you didn’t know how old you were, based on how youf eel right now, what age would you say you are?

Support Team

Dalton Zelenka Pricing Manager 3083989592 866‐453‐9770

Dalton is a born and raised Nebraska kid, and he plans to keep it that way, unless of course GIX opens an office in Eugene, OR. Why Eugene, OR you ask? Well it turns out Dalton is a HUGE Oregon Ducks fan. He has always loved the Ducks and wouldn’t mind being closer to take in their events and cheer them on in person instead of through the T.V. screen. “Win, Lose, or Tie, I’m a Duck until I die” – Direct quote from Dalton Zelenka. As a 2019 graduate of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, Dalton is new to the world of GIX, but is adjusting well. While he might feel like ‘the new kid that is not an intern’, we are confident that once he gets through his training he will be an asset to our Pricing and Rating team. To be honest, I wish I had a dollar for every time someone in the office has asked me how old Dalton is because they think he looks so young. He isn’t shocked to hear this as it’s a question he’s been getting for a while now. I think his answer to our question below sums it up perfectly; Q: If you were a mixed drink, what would you be? A: Vodka Lemonade, because I’m technically an adult, but still feel like a kid.

Most likely to be mistaken for a 12-year-old.

What do you bring to the table?

Salt. I put salt on everything.

What do you love about GIX?

All of the T.V.’s, I can’t wait for March Madness.

What is something interesting about you?

I can run 28.2 miles without walking. I ran a marathon and accidentally ran two extra miles because no one stopped me.

How long have you been dating / in a relationship with GIX?

It will be a month on July 4thand I think it’s going pretty good. We’re planning on lighting off fireworks to celebrate our 1-month anniversary.

Celebrity you get mistaken for?

I haven’t been mistaken for a celebrity yet, but during a high school track meet, my teammates said a girl from another town looked jus like me, so I don’t know if that counts or not.

Biggest pet peeve?

When someone touches my arm with their arm and especially when its skin on skin.
