Maverick Transportation announced Eddie Kinard of Florence, AL, as their Driver of the Month for April 2019. Kinard started his career at Maverick in July of 2003.
"Eddie came to my board a year ago," said Fleet Manager Andrew Zimmerman. "Whatever obstacle occurs, I can count on Eddie to tackle it to the best of his ability, and do it with a smile on his face. Even before having Eddie on my board, drivers would call me from his previous dedicated account to let me know how great of a guy Eddie is, how hard he works, and how well he represents Maverick. Throughout the year he has been on my board I can say everything said about Eddie was and still is true!"
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 announced 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.
