Maverick Transportation announced Liz Imel of Dixon, IL, as their Driver of the Month for October 2014. Imel has been with Maverick for two years and started her professional driving career at Maverick in July of 2012. She came to Maverick as a student driver.
"Liz takes a lot of pride in her job, going above and beyond to help out her coworkers," said Fleet Manager Brittany Harness. "She's always upbeat and positive with anyone she meets or deals with. Beyond that, she always maintains her MPG and is very successful, no matter what the equipment. She always produces outstanding service no matter what the task."
The tenth recipient of twelve Drivers of the Month for 2014, Liz has proven herself a leader in the company's fleet and within the temp control division. Family is very important to her; she loves spending time with her two daughters and two grandchildren when she's not over the road. Her favorite thing about Maverick is that she loves being treated as an individual and not just a truck number.
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.
