Maverick Transportation announced Michael Kirwan of Crane, MO, as their Driver of the Month for August 2016. Kirwan started his career at Maverick in March of 2003.
"Mike is the picture of what I see a Maverick being, or what we would hope for them to be," said Fleet Manager Jeremy Murphy. "He is always willing to help, whether the customer, another driver, or Maverick. Mike is dedicated to performance, safety, hard work, and being grateful for what Maverick does for him. His handle may be 'Mad Mike', but I have never known him to live up to it."
Kirwan also has 9 years of Safety Awards in his safety arsenal, in addition to his Driver of the Month recognition.
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.
