Maverick Transportation announced Bill Lathrop of Rocky Mount, NC, as their Driver of the Month for July 2019. Lathrop started his career at Maverick in September 2014.
"Bill is always there to help a fellow Maverick out, and never leaves someone out there struggling," said Fleet Manager Tom Andor. "He is always calling with solutions to the problem and not just identifying them and waiting for something to fail. Anytime something comes up, he is one of the first drivers I try to locate, because I know I can count on him."
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.
