Founded on Christian Principles

Our Workers

Can a Fortune 500 company really have Scripture hanging on its walls? Shelley Simpson has been working with JB Hunt Transport Services, Inc. since right out of college. Every day she walks into her office and sees the biblical principles on which the company was founded. In this video from the WorkMatters FUSE Forum, Shelly shares the difference faith makes in her workplace. Shelley began her career at J.B. Hunt as a customer service representative and has been promoted to numerous roles and responsibilities, including her current one as Chief Marketing Officer, EVP, and President of Integrated Capacity Solutions.

J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc., where Shelley’s worked since right out of college, was founded on Christian principles. Scriptures hang on the company's walls to remind employees of their heritage and guide them in their daily work.
