Maverick Transportation announced Jim Jones of Malvern, AR, as their Driver of the Month for January 2014. Jones has been with Maverick 11 years and has been a professional truck driver for over 40 years.
"Jim always does things 'the Maverick Way,'" said Fleet Manager Heath Ericson. "He is a fine example of what a Maverick driver should be and I'm proud to have him on my board."
The first recipient of twelve Drivers of the Month for 2014, Jones has proven himself a leader in the company's fleet. He has been honored with multiple safety awards including a 5 year safe driving ring. His favorite part of driving for Maverick is, "the atmosphere, the equipment, and the pay."
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.
