Driver of the Year Award
Congratulations to Mazie T., 2019 Montgomery Transport Driver of the Year! Mazie has driven almost half a million safe miles since starting his career with MT in 2014 and is a two-time recipient of our driver of the month award. He is a first generation truck driver and loves that trucking allows him to explore and see the world. He enjoys cooking, fishing and spending time with friends and family.
"Mazie has shown that he continues, after years of service, to MT to go above and beyond. Mazie is always someone we can count on to deliver on time and safely. Having Mazie as a coworker makes my job easier each day. Even during the holiday months, he found a way to maximize his utilization for December. Thanks for all you do, Mazie. This is much deserved."
- Jay Dalziel, Driver Manager
How We Select Driver of the Year
MT's 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 Montgomery Transport and our customers. Each month, driver managers will nominate their two best candidates. Once all of the nominees are turned in, management will review each nominee and determine the winner for our Driver of the Month award. At the end of the year, those 12 Drivers of the Month will become a candidate for Driver of the Year.
Driver of the Year will be provided a beautiful, custom black tractor for daily company use!
Drivers of the Month
The Driver of the Month 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. Each month's 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.
