Maverick Transportation announced Michael Burcham of Irving, TX, as their Driver of the Month for May 2014. Burcham has been with Maverick for 8 years and started his professional driving career at Maverick in July of 2006. He has been driving for a total of 10 years.
"Michael is always looking out for his fellow drivers on the road," said Fleet Manager Ronnie Moore. "He also takes the initiative to assist newer drivers with loading procedures and tips. He always has such a positive attitude and does what is best for Maverick."
The fifth recipient of twelve Drivers of the Month for 2014, Burcham has proven himself a leader in the company's fleet. Mike is a driver within Maverick's flatbed division, and has also been awarded Maverick's prestigious "Maroon Marauder" pin. His favorite part of driving for Maverick is, "the good people here that I work with."
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.
