Maverick Transportation announced Allen McCutchen of Hasty, AR, as their Driver of the Month for August 2015. McCutchen started his career at Maverick in December of 2010. He has been a professional driver for 15 years.
"Allen is wonderful to work with," said Fleet Manager Jeremy Atkins. "He was asked several times if he would be willing to help out with a dedicated account. He's a huge team player, and his response was always 'yes' and he always stepped in. Allen has done such a great job representing Maverick." McCutchen's favorite thing about Maverick is the independence he feels. "I run my truck as if I own it," said McCutchen, who has celebrated four years of safe driving with Maverick. McCutchen is married to wife Connie and they have three sons. In his spare time, McCutchen enjoys hunting, fishing and camping.
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.
