2017 May Driver of the Month

Ricky Sparks


Maverick Transportation announced Ricky Sparks of Ellsinore, MO, as their Driver of the Month for May 2017. Sparks started his career at Maverick in February 2007.

“Ricky is a true Maverick,” said Fleet Manager Lou Shoults. “He does what he is supposed to do and does not waste any time. If he has any problems he calls to get them straightened out before he has any problems with the load. He has over a 100 on his PFP score for the year. Ricky is always on time and looking to hustle on to the next load. He has no problem with swaps and repowers and is willing to help in any situation.”

Outstanding service gets recognized at Maverick.

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.
