HOLLAND, Mich., April 10, 2013
HOLLAND, Mich., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- (NASDAQ: YRCW)-- The Michigan
Trucking Association (MTA) has named Holland professional driver Mike Finn as
their 2013 Driver of the Year. The honor is extended to just one Michigan
driver per year to recognize excellence in safety, work habits, and public and
customer relations. The Driver of the Year is selected from the twelve Drivers
of the Month. He accepted his award from Ruth Johnson, the Michigan Secretary
of State, at the MTA's annual Safety Awards Banquet.
"Drivers like Mike Finn are what make Holland the leader it is today," said
Scott Ware, Holland president. "We have great programs and offer customers
tremendous value, but our company's success really comes down to the service
delivered by drivers like Mike. We are excited to have him receive this honor,
and privileged to have a driver of Mike's caliber be a part of Team Holland.
We congratulate Mike for his victory and thank him for his continued
commitment to customer service and safety."
Mike operates out of the Birch Run, MI service center, making his daily run
to/from South Bend, Ind. His route takes him directly through a regional snow
belt, making his safety record that much more impressive. He has been driving
professionally for 34 years, 26 of those with Holland. In that time, Mike has
built a perfect safety record, has never had a lost-time injury, and has
accumulated over 3.2 million accident-free miles.
"Mike is a true leader and a great example for all our drivers," said Keith
Soyza, Birch Run service center manager. "He takes pride in doing his job
right and always tries to give customers more than they might expect. He is an
outstanding, dependable employee who always gets the job done."
"I am humbled and proud of this recognition," said Mike Finn. "Customer
service and safe work habits are a part of what I do every day."
Mike has been married to his wife Carol for over 32 years and has two sons
ages 26 and 23. He is an avid outdoorsman, taking every opportunity to hunt
and fish. He served as National Team Advisor for F&S Suzuki motocross racing
and volunteered for 12 years for canine search and rescue efforts with
ambulance crews and paramedics where safety lessons were daily reinforced.
