Centerline Shines a Spotlight on Ron Senceses

by Kelsey Stafford | Sep 28, 2017

There is no ‘I’ in Team

Centerline Driver Ron SencesesCenterline is beyond fortunate to work with some of the greatest drivers on the road; Ron Senceses is an ideal example of that. Ron’s positive attitude matched with unparalleled work ethic make him an exceptionally valuable part of the team. Ron’s reputation for being a hard worker follows him from the time he served in the Army, where he was promoted quickly for his dedication, focus on teamwork, and fierce desire to do the job right.

When Ron left the army due to shrapnel severing his Achilles heel, he decided in his down time to enroll in EMT classes. During the course, Ron’s natural leadership style led him to teach and train others, ultimately landing him a job offer from the class captain; Ron declined. Rather than joining the EMT team or spending his time in a cubicle in an office job elsewhere, Ron decided to attend trucking school where he described himself as a “sponge”, taking his learning very seriously. He quickly rose to the top of his class and was soon training others. At one point, his CDL instructor asked Ron if he already knew how to drive commercial vehicles as he picked up his coursework so quickly!

Over the course of Ron’s trucking career, he has worked with a variety of equipment: he can operate flatbeds, has a specialty in heavy haul and steel hauler, and holds a heavy equipment license. He recognizes his father for the encouragement to become a jack of all trades. Ron thanks his father for the work ethic he instilled in him and his siblings, showing his love and support by being an example of strict discipline and giving them the tools and resources to become successful. He shared that if his father saw that something wasn’t done correctly, he would make sure that the task was remedied- even if it was the middle of the night- and that his father explained “if you are in the public eye doing a job, your employer is going to want you to do it right.”

Now, Ron is the father of three; a dream after his time in Iraq. After being in the war, he appreciates every little aspect of life from “the simple liberties” he has to “seeing all the wonderful landscapes this country has to offer” as he drives. On the road, Ron appreciates the ever-changing environment as he drives and he listens to a favorite playlist and comedy and Jiu-Jitsu podcasts to stay focused. When he’s not driving, Ron will spend time in the gym to relieve stress and stay in shape.

Ron’s motto is, “There is no ‘I’ in team.” He displays evidence of this through the advice he offers to new drivers: always keep an open mind and be prepared to listen and learn from those who are in charge of teaching. “It doesn’t matter if you are older, younger, or the same age as your trainer. It doesn’t matter if you have more, less or the same amount of experience as your trainer. A person should always be open. That way, the trainer and trainee have an opportunity to learn from each other.” It looks like we could all learn a lot from Ron Senceses; he is truly an esteemed part of the industry.
