Dean Filmer was selected as Driver of the Month in the Reefer-Van Division. Filmer was nominated by his fleet manager, Michael Kehoe, who said, "Dean is not only a great driver but he is also a great role model for other drivers. Always on time, and always wanting to work." Filmer has driven for Decker for 12 years.
Stan Giddings was chosen as the Flatbed Division's Driver of the Month.
Giddings' fleet manager, Sue Anderson says, "Stan is a very conscientious driver and does a very good job. He has been easy to work with and gets along with everyone." Giddings and his wife Mary Ann have two sons and three grandsons. He has driven for Decker for 10 years.
In addition to winning a Decker gift certificate, both of these drivers will now be eligible to compete for Driver/Owner-Operator of the Year. This year-end recognition of one driver from each division brings a 1-cent-per-mile pay increase for twelve months.
Decker's Drivers of the Month are selected by their fleet managers based on overall performance within all areas of the company, including operational productivity, safety record, maintenance/care of equipment, payroll, billing and customer service.
