Maverick Transportation announced Allen Harper of Toledo, OH, as their Driver of the Month for May 2019. Harper started his career at Maverick in February of 2008.
"I've only had Allen for a month, but he takes great pride in his work, he respects the industry and his career," said Fleet Manager Joey Donaldson. "Like a quarterback is the coach on the field, Allen is the fleet manager on the road. He may not know the ins and outs of the office chair and computer, but he understands what has to be done for him also has to be done for many, many more Maverick drivers on a daily basis."
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.
