Maverick Transportation announced Parke Hardgrove of Braselton, GA, as their Driver of the Month for March 2014. Hardgrove has been with Maverick almost 2 years and started his professional driving career at Maverick after obtaining his Class A CDL.
"Parke is one of the best self managed drivers on my board," said Fleet Manager Tim Seivertson. "He has just become a student driver trainer and we are very lucky to have him teaching new Maverick drivers his professional driving habits."
The third recipient of twelve Drivers of the Month for 2014, Hardgrove has proven himself a leader in the company's fleet. He has been honored with a safety award for each year of driving, is a driver in Maverick's glass division, and a driver trainer. His favorite part of driving for Maverick is, "the freedom, as long as I do my job the Maverick job they trust me and give me freedom."
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.
