The driver of the year is determined through a combined process which distinguishes those drivers who have achieved an exemplary safety record and possess personal qualities that are a great reflection of what embodies our organization. These drivers are then put into a lottery system where one lucky driver is randomly selected for the $10,000 grand prize.
I have been driving truck for 28 years. In 2000, I started with our customer, and switched over to GHI in 2013. I have over a million miles driven, 550,000 here with GHI. I was named driver of the quarter on multiple occasions throughout the years, and was entered into a drawing to win driver of the year. My name was picked and I couldn’t be happier. This job has afforded me the ability to provide a stable income for my family. My co-workers are like family to me here, and makes the job that much better. I want to personally thank everyone at GHI for all their teamwork and generosity.
The Gentlemen of the Year award is given to a driver who exhibits qualities of integrity, humbleness and an overall positive attitude towards his Company and colleagues. This year we are pleased to honor John McLaughlin as 2020’s Gentleman of the Year.
