Maverick Transportation announced Sam Landrum of Piggott, AR, as their Driver of the Month for April 2023. Landrum has been driving with Maverick since 2003 and he has also been a 1996, 2001, and 2018 Driver of the Month. Sam was also Lytx's 2023 Driver of the Year.
"Sam has accomplished so much in his remarkable 30-year tenure with Maverick," said his fleet manager, Bruce Nickerson. "Outside of the cockpit, Sam likes to tend to his garden and catfish farm and relax with his family."
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.
