“Todd consistently produces quality content for print, digital, video and social media, on subjects that impact the day-to-day operations of Overdrive’s core audience of independent owner-operators,” says Max Heine, editorial director for Randall-Reilly’s owner-driver division. “He consistently tackles the tough issues Overdrive readers face, such as excessive regulation, tight margins and a difficult business environment.”

In addition to his extensive and in-depth feature work, Dills writes daily news stories, builds multimedia packages, manages Overdrive’s social media and is the author of the award-winning Channel 19 blog.

Last year, Dills and Overdrive received the Grand Neal Award, business-to-business media’s highest honor, for the series of articles, “CSA’s Data Trail,” built on data from Overdrive’s sister brand RigDig Business Intelligence.
