CFI Announces May 2017 Drivers of the Month

The monthly recognition is given to drivers who excel in customer service and prioritize safety, every day

JOPLIN, Mo. June 21, 2017 CFI, a North American full truckload carrier, today announced its May Drivers of the Month.

The Driver of the Month award categories include individual and team awards for both company and contracted drivers, as well as an award for the top regional driver. Award recipients are selected based on dedication to safety, professional service and exemplary performance. CFI recognized the drivers during an awards ceremony held recently at its headquarters in Joplin, Missouri.

May Drivers of the Month:

  • Chad Wetmore, of Lakeland, Florida, was named CFI's Company Driver of the Month. Chad started driving for CFI in 2012. His professional goal is to always stay safe on the road. Chad urges drivers to get out of the truck (if and when it is safe to do so) and look if there is any doubt in a driving situation. As a professional truck driver, he appreciates the opportunity of seeing the country's varied landscapes. In his free time, he enjoys riding ATVs and camping.
  • CFI named driving team Amber Adler and Martin Hill as Company Team of the Month. Amber is from Willow Park, Texas and Martin is from Akron, Ohio. The pair attended truck driving school together prior to joining CFI in 2016. Both Amber and Martin hope to someday be owner-operators for CFI. Travelling the country, and always having a new routine, is their motivation for becoming professional drivers.
  • David Brown, from Cape Coral, Florida, was named CFI's Contractor Driver of the Month. While looking for new opportunities, he began professional driving in 2013 and joined CFI in 2015. David loves the financial security of truck driving and one day hopes to build a fleet of trucks to run with CFI. David encourages all drivers to take each trip one mile at a time and return home safely. In his free time, David enjoys playing music.
  • Timothy and Carolyn Beal, a married couple from Bald Knob, Arkansas, were selected as CFI's Contractor Team of the Month. After being trained by his grandmother on how to drive a truck, Timothy has been working in the trucking industry for 16 years. Carolyn joined Timothy on his truck in 2010. The couple has expressed that there is nothing about the career that they do not enjoy. They advise other drivers to watch everything closely and always drive extremely cautiously. In their time off, Carolyn enjoys hunting, fishing and craft projects, and Timothy spends time with his mother.

"Our drivers hit the road every day fully dedicated to service and safety," said Tim Staroba, president of CFI. "We are so proud to recognize our May Drivers of the Month for setting an example of professionalism, safety and excellence and for keeping our nation's roads safe and our customers happy."
