Kottke Trucking awarded driver Carlo Garcia the Duane and Connie Kottke Distinguished Driver of the Year award during its fourth annual Driver of the Year program. The program was held Jan. 6 at Jackpot Junction Casino and Hotel in Morton, Minnesota.
Garcia started working for Kottke Trucking in July of 2014 after it acquired Walbon, which Garcia started with in 2014. He was awarded the First Quarter Jim Doering Award of Excellence, which made him eligible for the Distinguished Driver of the Year award.
Kottke Trucking had the following to say about Garcia in a statement: “Carlo believes in team, meaning that Carlo believes that everyone in Kottke Trucking is all one big team and we should all help each other succeed. Whenever you need anything done, you can count on Carlo. You have to be careful to not overwork him, that is just how hard of a worker Carlo is. If Carlo has a bad day, nobody would know about it – he is professional and always puts his best foot forward. When someone says Kottke, they may think of Carlo and that makes up proud.”
