Kristin Link: A Journey of Growth and Passion at Mustang Freightways

Eight years ago, Kristin Link joined Mustang Freightways, eager to embrace a new challenge in the trucking world. Her love for helping customers and forging new partnerships has now led her to become the Sales Manager of a company she cherishes deeply. “My time at Mustang has been a real growth trajectory,” Kristin shares as she reflects on her incredible journey.

At Mustang Freightways, we’re committed to providing exceptional service levels and going the extra mile to cater to our customer’s needs.

Trucking, Tangibility, and Tenacity

When Kristin joined Mustang Freightways, she discovered a newfound passion for the trucking industry, as it presented her with exciting challenges and opportunities. “I was thrilled to work in a field as tangible as trucking, where I could see the direct impact of our efforts,” says Kristin.

Throughout her years at our company, Kristin has witnessed remarkable growth and adaptability, which has fueled her enthusiasm. “At Mustang Freightways, we’re committed to providing exceptional service levels and going the extra mile to cater to our customer’s needs. It’s inspiring to be part of a team that continually strives for excellence,” Kristin states proudly.

My goal is to create an environment where our sales team can thrive and provide the best possible service to our customers.

Steering the Sales Team to Success

As the newly appointed Sales Manager, Kristin oversees the Sales team, crafting strategies and clearing obstacles to foster growth and success. “I’m eager to collaborate with my team daily and connect with our customers across Alberta, making a positive impact wherever possible,” she shares.

Challenges and Triumphs

Kristin has enjoyed seeking out new opportunities, finding ways to help our customers, and forging lasting partnerships. She fondly recalls, “One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about my job is walking into new doors. When I meet a business for the first time, it usually makes for a good conversation, a smile, a new contact, and a  new opportunity.”

However, her journey in the industry hasn’t been without challenges. The BC floods of 2021 tested the team’s resilience and adaptability. “Our team had to do whatever it took to move freight and, for a time, prioritize essential services like food and medical supplies. I’m impressed with how we managed and made it through those times together,” she reflects.

Some Wind in Her Sails

When she’s not working, Kristin enjoys various outdoor activities that keep her active and connected to nature. From gardening and boating to golf and biking, she loves to spend time in the great outdoors. In the winter, she delights in exploring the mountains and skiing. This summer, she’s taking on an exciting new adventure, sailing!

“With spring upon us, I’m eager to embrace the warm weather and immerse myself in outdoor activities. I’m taking sailing lessons in the summer and I’m super excited about it. My goal is to be able to sail the Gulf Islands someday,” she says, her determination shining through. Knowing Kristin, it’s only a matter of time.

Kristin Link’s inspiring journey from Business Development Manager to Sales Manager at Mustang Freightways is a testament to her passion, determination, and dedication. We’re thrilled to have her on our team and can’t wait to see what she accomplishes in her new role!
