Maverick Transportation announced Mike Manning of Russellville, AR, as their Driver of the Month for January 2019. Manning has been driving with Maverick for 14 years.
"Mike has a great heart and always wants to help out," said Fleet Manager Morgan Forrest. "His PFP and mpg are always very high, and he's done such a great job training students over the years."
The first recipient of twelve Drivers of the Month for 2019, Manning has proven himself a leader in the company's fleet. He has been honored with multiple safety awards throughout his 14 year tenure.
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.
