At Centerline, our drivers are like our family and the focus of everything we do.
Our program, Respect the Drive, was built to celebrate our amazing drivers. It's all about you and honoring the work you do day in and day out.
Each month, our team picks a driver to spotlight for going above and beyond in some way. In addition to a spotlight, they receive an exclusive Respect the Drive jacket.
This month, our Respect the Drive Driver of the Month is Russell Meeks, a local driver in Columbus, Ohio at Centerline.
Russell said it best when he replied, “you do what you have to do to make it to work on time and do a good job” when asked by a client about the length it takes to ride his bike that he rides every day to and from work.
Nominated by Columbus, OH Account Manager, Shana Meeks, she states, “I talked to one of my clients last week and he wanted me to know how incredible Russell is! He said even when we hit those incredibly cold, freezing temperatures with the ice and snow, Russell makes it every single day on time. He does not have a car at the moment so if one of the office guys is leaving work, they will offer him a ride, and Russell always says, ‘if it’s not too much trouble’.”
The client further stated to Shana that even on days off he will come to see if they need him. Which typically they do and will give him extra days and hours.
“Our client said Russell is extremely dedicated, and a really hard worker. And we thought since he rides his bike every day, that we could get him a backpack, gloves, socks, a hat, and some snacks to keep in there. Along with a thank you card and lunch. When we hear praise from our clients, we make it a point to make the driver feel special!”
Thank you Russell, for all your hard work and for Respecting the Drive!
