We appreciate all of the drivers out there who do so much every day of the year! To close out this special week of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, we’d like to recognize three employees of TCI Leasing/ Rentals, a NationaLease Member: Roger Hoogervorst (pictured), Michael Coleman, and Mario Mendoza. They are acknowledged by Richard Rodriguez and Tony Avendano, who wrote the following tributes. Thanks guys, and a special thank you to Robert, Michael, and Mario!
Robert Hoogervorst Always Gets the Job Done for Colleagues & Customers
Robert has been an outstanding employee since being hired on September 7, 2014. He always has a great attitude and always goes the extra mile to help. He works six days a week and we know we can always rely on Robert to step up and help if there are ever issues.
There have been times when another driver may be ill or can’t make it in for their run, and Robert will always step up. Ready to assist with other routes when he can, Robert is always very respectful to office personnel and customers. We call him “Uncle Bob,” and we know that when there is an issue and he steps in to help, we will always get a “good deal.” He is solid and will get the job done.
Michael Coleman Keeps the Band Playing with Ready Professionalism
Michael Coleman was a lead driver on my account, helping out wherever possible and going above and beyond the line of duty. I would like to share this letter of commendation he received from the local school district for assisting with their band project:
“Now that marching band season has concluded, we wanted to take a moment and express our sincerest gratitude for the services of TCI in transporting the band’s equipment to multiple destinations over the last eight weeks.
“Specifically, we want to personally thank Michael, the driver assigned to our travels. Michael was incredibly helpful, always polite and on time, and very professional. Michael understood our schedule and our specific needs and he exceeded our expectations. He was a pleasure to work with. We would recommend Michael and TCI to our network of parents and friends, because of the great service we received. Thank you.”
Mario Mendoza Remains Ready to Assist Whenever Needed
Mario has been stepping up to the plate every week for TCI and the account he drives for. Not a day goes by that Mario does not offer help or go beyond the call of duty as a driver. He also helps to log and track the miles on all the equipment for this account and has not missed a day after coming back from an OJI in May of 2016.
