Maverick Transportation announced Robert Jones of Morehead, KY, as their Driver of the Month for December 2018. Jones has been driving with Maverick since May 2008.
"Robert has been a Driver Trainer since March 2016 and has trained 20 students," said Fleet Manager Rhonda Brignac. "Robert is very professional and understanding with his students. Comments from students include his compassion, good communication skills and patience. Robert is a good representative for Maverick and would contribute in a positive way to the Advisory Council."
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.
