TMC Transportation Designates Adam Gordon as Driver of the Fourth Quarter for 2019
Adam came to TMC nine years ago after reaching an impasse in his career. He knew it was time to find something new, so he took the leap of faith and enrolled in a CDL program at a local community college. During his time in the program, a TMC recruiter visited his class and Adam knew that was where he wanted to work.
Working in the trucking industry isn’t a typical 9 to 5 job, and that’s what Adam likes about it. “The variety of work is what I like the best,” he says. “As long as you are steady and don’t get in a hurry, you can have success out here.”
“Without question, Adam is an exceptional representative of the TMC Family,” says his Fleet Manager, Kevin Kamakian. “He is a pleasure to work with, and I can put my full confidence in him to make sure he does the job safely and professionally.”
While gaining the title of ‘Driver of the Quarter’ is a great accomplishment, the Virginia native still has more goals to pursue at TMC. “I’m on track to reach one million miles of safe driving, so I’m hoping to do that this year,” he says.
Most importantly, Adam knows that TMC is a place where he can round out the rest of his working career. “I’ve always had great relationships with my Fleet Managers and other team members, so I just hope to finish it all up here and make it to retirement. This is definitely a long-term commitment for me.”
When Adam isn’t on the road, you can find him spending time with his wife, Jaime, and their five kids: Nate, Marissa, Natalie, Adian and Charleigh.
Criteria for Driver of the Quarter recognition includes years of service with the company, safe driving record, excellent customer service, professionalism and overall quality performance. Once a driver is named as a Driver of the Quarter, they are eligible to receive the prestigious Wheel Master Award.
Congratulations, Adam, on this well-deserved distinction!
