Maverick Transportation announced Don Walker from FND from Balk Springs, TX as their April 2020 Dedicated Driver of the Month. Walker has been driving with Maverick since February 2012.
“Don is a workhorse of a driver, extremely motivated and always does his best to ensure deliveries are made on time without incident," said Account Manager Angela Whitaker. "Not only can he make 'impossible' deliveries on time but he applies his 'we’ll make it work' attitude to every load he takes. His laid-back attitude allows him to roll with the punches when freight is light and wait times between loads are high, but he can also kick it into high gear when he needs to. He is super dependable and I know I don’t have to worry about him because he will do exactly what he says he can and will do. He always communicates any potential issues to me and doesn’t hesitate to ask questions instead of making his own assumptions. He also does not hesitate to help his fellow drivers when they need it, and is eager to see everyone succeed."
The Dedicated Driver of the Month program is a high honor for specially-selected Maverick drivers. Every month, Maverick recognizes one 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, the Dedicated Driver of the Month committee will choose the Dedicated Driver of the Year, which is announced the following January.
