By Erin Ressegieu / January 16, 2019

Mentor of the Month – Christi Azbill

Mentors play a crucial role in shaping new driver’s careers.  Luckily, our team has Christi Azbill, TransAm mentor, to guide our mentees. Christi has dedicated her time and industry knowledge to ensure that her mentees have a positive experience and are prepared for life on the road. She continues to educate herself as a leader so she can be a resource for newcomers learning the rules of the road. Manager of Mentee Training, Josh Moore adds, “Christi continues to progress as a mentor. I’m excited for the mentees who will get the opportunity to train with her. Her passion for the trucking industry is infectious!” Thank you Christi, for being a positive influence in our mentoring program. Your continued dedication to TransAm does not go unnoticed!

Regional Driver of the Month – Rickey Hall

Rickey has been with TransAm just over a year now, but he is already making waves as a dynamic addition to the regional fleet. His warm disposition and courteous manner have helped him build lasting partnerships with customers. Whether he is communicating with dispatch or delivering a load, you can see how Rickey takes pride in what he does. Regional Fleet Manager Penny Lerro adds, “You know Rickey really loves what he does. His positive attitude has been a great enhancement to our team.” Thank you Rickey for representing TransAm. We are proud to have you as a part of the family!

Company Driver of the Month – James Hampton

Driver Manager, Jordan Gottman stated, “James Hampton has been an exemplary company driver for the duration of the time in which I have known him.  James has consistently gone above and beyond what is expected of him at every opportunity.  Never has he encountered a situation that he deemed too daunting a task to complete.  Whether it’s relaying multiple times to ensure on-time delivery of our freight or helping get another driver home for home time, James is always eager to help us in whatever way he can.  James has also, on multiple occasions, assisted other drivers so that they might become more successful themselves.  He does so not out of any sense of obligation other than it being the ’right thing to do‘ to help his fellow driver.  James is the epitome of a Noble driver – quietly toiling away, always perfecting his craft, and never expecting any more in return than the satisfaction of a job well done.”

Independent Contractor of the Month – Louis Major

This month we are recognizing Louis Major for being a true hero out on the road. One December day, Louis was driving when suddenly a car crossed both lanes of traffic, went up an embankment and rolled multiple times. Within minutes, Louis safely parked his truck and assisted the passengers in the vehicle to safety. The passengers, a young woman and a child, were fortunately unharmed and truly grateful that Louis came to their rescue! Thank you Louis. We are extremely proud of you for your quick reaction and act of bravery.
