Richard Hoopingarner


Maverick Transportation announced Richard Hoopingarner of Bonham, TX as their Driver of the Month for September 2021. Hoopingarner has been driving with Maverick since 2006.

"Richard is an awesome driver, and I can trust that he always does the right thing on the job, both safely and with integrity," said Fleet Manager Heath Ericson. "He's no-nonsense and gets the job done, has great safety scores and PFP to show that he's got what it takes to be a Black Hat. He's going to be a great advocate for the fleet!”

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.
