yone wants. He shows up to work with a positive attitude, customers love him, and he gets along with all the other drivers. He joined the dedicated team 8 months after joining the Montgomery family and has had such a positive impact since then. If you ever have the pleasure to sit and talk with him, you can't help but walk away feeling like you gained a little something extra. His faith runs deep, as does his love of people and helping others, and I can't think of anyone more deserving. Congratulations on this well-deserved honor." - Merri

The Driver of the Year award is designed to recognize and honor our drivers who have demonstrated superior professionalism, excellence in safety, and have dedicated their time and efforts in all around service to the Montgomery Transportation Group and our customers. The Driver of the Month and Driver of the Quarter is selected from the fleet’s top performers each month. A Driver of the Month committee, consisting of safety and senior management, reviews the list of top performing drivers and puts them to a vote. The driver with the most votes is deemed Driver of the Month or Driver of the Quarter. Each driver will become a candidate for Driver of the Year that will be chosen at the beginning of the following year once scores are finalized.
