Maverick Transportation announced Tom Garner of Ash Flat, AR, as their Driver of the Month for November 2016. Garner started his career at Maverick in May of 2010.
"It's been such a rewarding experience working with Tom," said Fleet Manager Morgan Forrest. "He's incredibly knowledgeable, understands this industry well and knows how to be flexible. He's very level-headed and mature in his approach and response to situations. He also looks out for others and will volunteer to stay out a weekend every month or so. He's learned in order to be successful, he has to do more than the minimum and he's not afraid to put forth the extra effort. There are only a few flatbed drivers who have gained more miles than him in the past 12 months and he also has an excellent PFP score. Tom has told me before that he really enjoys his job, and I think he would make an excellent Driver of the Month."
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.
