Member of the Month: Nathan Watts, Veryable
Member of the month, Nathan Watts, knows what it takes to make it: teamwork. As a former college athlete and high school football coach, he’s kinda the expert on teams around here. Now, as general manager of the newest Oklahoma team for Veryable, he’s building a team to support our city’s largest industry: manufacturing. It’s a big career change from education to logistics, but after casually browsing LinkedIn, Nathan knew he’d found his new perfect fit.
Veryable is the “uber of manufacturing and logistics labor,” Nathan always says. It’s an on-demand marketplace for manufacturing, logistics and warehousing labor. Veryable’s flexible labor solution connects businesses with high-quality workers at the click of a button, enabling higher productivity and a competitive edge. For workers, Veryable provides immediate access to work, the ability to control their own schedule, opportunities to build new skills, and best of all, next-day pay.
