Respect the Drive April Spotlight: The Gatlin Brothers

May 1, 2024 Jaimie Williams

Congrats to our Respect the Drive Drivers of the Month Christopher, Adrian and Kenneth

Through our Respect the Drive program, our team and customers nominate drivers each month to share their stories for all the hard work they do and how they have gone above and beyond.

Our April spotlight falls on not just one but three individuals. A remarkable trio of brothers – Chris, Kenneth and Adrian Gatlin, who are all local drivers in Lakeland, FL.

All three brothers’ journeys with Centerline began in February of this year and they have been a dynamic trio since.

Chris, who was already making waves within the team, was the first to join Centerline and brought on both Kenneth and Adrian, each adding their unique qualities to the team. Senior National Account Recruiting Manager Melissa Springfield, who nominated the Gatlin brothers, stated, “When Kenneth first called, he said: ‘Rumor on the street is you have loads.’ I genuinely laughed out loud. Having all three brothers working for us and everything we hear about them has been great.”

In the short time with Centerline, the Gatlin brothers have become synonymous with reliability, professionalism and unparalleled service. Their willingness to extend their working hours and availability, combined with their dedication to personalized service for each designated customer, has already left a mark on colleagues and clients. 

“Their reputation has been so tremendous, even a client asked if they could have Adrian. We are extremely happy they have brought their family into the Centerline family.” Springfield stated.

Jacob Guzman, Service Manager, added, “Every customer we assign them to has nothing but compliments and requests to have them back. With great attitudes, remarkable respect, and incredible work ethics, they are all true representations of Centerline Drivers.”

Thank you, Chris, Kenneth and Adrian for all your hard work and for Respecting the Drive!
