"He’s the ultimate family man, and takes pride in providing for his family and putting them at the center of everything he does. He’s got such a great, can-do attitude. And he’s one of the best drivers in our RSW division, absolutely phenomenal with his PFP scores. Congrats, Melvin!”

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.
