Maverick Transportation announced Autry Cates from AKS out of Springhill, KS as their Driver of the Quarter for Quarter 1 of 2018. Breedlove has been driving with Maverick for 3 years.
“Autry is the definition of a driver who exemplifies getting the job done,” said Account Manager Angela Whitaker. "Whenever I have a load that needs covered, Autry finds a way to do it within the limits he is given. Not only does he contribute to the AKS division, but he plays an instrumental role in the future of our drivers in his role as a trainer. Of the students I have talked to, they have all enjoyed having him as a trainer. His most recent student said on his survey, 'Very informative and patient and really wants the student to succeed.' I believe this statement says a lot to who Autry is and how seriously he takes his career with Maverick and the future of the company with the time and effort he puts into his students. He is also active in recruiting drivers as he is always running out of referral cards. In all the ways he contributes outside of delivering glass, he is exactly the type of driver who I would feel comfortable representing not only AKS, but the dedicated divisions as a whole, as Dedicated Driver of the Quarter."
Maverick Transportation announced Jack Hatcher from WWV out of Heaters, WV as their Driver of the Quarter for Quarter 2 of 2018. Hatcher has been driving with Maverick for 23 years.
“Jack is a pleasure working with," said Account Manager Aretha Clegg. "He is a hard working and very respectful. He calls me every Friday afternoon and asks if I need anything else from him. Jack gives WWV 110% every day!"
The Dedicated Driver of the Quarter program is a high honor for specially-selected Maverick drivers. Every quarter Maverick recognizes two drivers from the company's fleet who demonstrate exceptional commitment to their profession, while maintaining Maverick's standards of holding safety in the highest regard. At the end of the year, the Dedicated Driver of the Quarter committee will choose the Dedicated Driver of the Year, which is announced the following January. As Driver of the Quarter, 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.
