Maverick Transportation announced José "Ramon" Gaucin of Rogers, AR, as their Driver of the Month for February 2016. Gaucin started his career at Maverick in June of 2007.
"Ramon is always ready to run, help, swap, just be a team player," said Fleet Manager Jeremy Murphy. "There have been many instances where the situation has been less than ideal, and he's always been there to save the day. I believe he'd be a great example and voice for our fleet."
Gaucin has one child, Alejandro. He enjoys welding in his spare time and is currently building a smoker to smoke a hog for Thanksgiving this year.
The Driver of the Month program is a high honor for specially-selected Maverick drivers. Every month Maverick recognizes a driver from the company's fleet who demonstrates exceptional commitment to their profession, while maintaining Maverick's standards of holding safety in the highest regard. At the end of the year, all Maverick employees vote from the twelve Driver of the Month honorees to select the Driver of the Year, which is anounced the following January. As Driver of the Month, the recipient also serves as a voice of fellow drivers on the prestigious Driver Advisory Council, which meets with our leadership team on a quarterly basis.
