Maverick Transportation announced Mark Burroughs of Poplar Bluff, MO, as their Driver of the Month for January 2022. Burroughs has been driving with Maverick since 2015.
"Mark has been an outstanding driver ever since he's been working with me on my board," said Fleet Manager Tyler Riegler. "He is always efficient, safe, and tries his hardest to make early deliveries if he can. He communicates extremely well, too. He always brings good energy when I speak to him over the phone and his PFP scores are consistently excellent. I am very happy to work with him each day."
Mark likes to spend time outdoors hunting, camping, fishing, and golfing, and he tries to spend as much time with his grandkids as he can.
The first recipient of twelve Drivers of the Month for 2022, Burroughs has proven himself a leader in the company's fleet.
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.
