We are pleased to announce the CalArk Driver of the Month for August 2019, Christo Salinas!!
Criteria considered when choosing a Driver of the Month includes miles, MPG, on-time-delivery, safety record, attitude, professionalism, and overall performance. Come July 2020, we will have 12 Driver of the Month recipients and they will be in the running for Driver of the Year. We will open voting up for drivers and office personnel at that time, and the Driver of the Year will be named during Driver Appreciation Week in September 2020. There will be a 1st Runner Up and a 2nd Runner Up. We will also have a driver with the best Mileage and a driver with the best MPG named that time as well.
Christo is on Ronnie Moore’s board and is from Penitas, TX. He started with CalArk on 03/13/2000. Becky Melton and Ronnie Moore both agree Christo is a great guy and always goes above and beyond what is asked of him. He helps out anytime he is needed and always does so with a great attitude. He is a true team-player. In addition to this latest achievement, Christo has also received a 2 Million Miles Award, 100% On-Time-Delivery, 5 and 10 Years of service, 1 Million, 1.5 Million, and 1.75 Million Miles of driving.
We are proud to have Christo as part of our team! If you see him around the terminal, be sure to tell him thank you and job well done!
“Choosing to be a professional driver means choosing to be a safe, defensive driver not only for yourself but for the motoring public around you.”
- Leslie Stout, CDS, Director of Safety, CalArk International
That is why we put great emphasis on safe and defensive driving training here at CalArk. We have a company-wide, top-down understanding of and appreciation for the importance of safety and the impact it has on our company, on our industry, and on the motoring public.
Accident costs go beyond damaged equipment. Accidents affect company reliability and reputation, employee morale, insurance costs, productivity, recruiting, and retention efforts. We recognize the value of being committed to a world-class safety program, and we strive every day to be safer than the day before and to do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.
