Maverick Transportation announced Earl Carthen of Portage, IN, as their Driver of the Month for July 2023. Carthen has been driving with Maverick since 2019.

"Earl is a great reliable driver with a welcoming personality who doesn’t mind running hard and getting miles," said Fleet Manager Bruce Nickerson. "In the past year alone he has been awarded an Ace award, Pride Pass it On award, and a 2-Year Safety award."

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.
