PGT Trucking Recognizes Million Milers


PGT Trucking recently recognized 56 Million Mile Drivers and 144 Safe Drivers at its annual awards event on May 18 in Pennsylvania.

According to PGT Trucking CEO, Pat Gallagher, these individuals set the standard for excellence not only within their company but throughout the industry.

“We value and support our Million Milers and Safe Drivers,” Gallagher said. “We are encouraged and excited by their professionalism and attitude, and we are honoured to have these drivers represent our company with their knowledge, dedication, integrity and above all their commitment to safety.”

PGT’s Safe Drivers have driven for PGT for more than five years, or less than one million miles, without a preventable accident and Million Mile Drivers have driven over a million miles without a preventable accident.

Gregg Troian, PGT Trucking president, said, “The Million Mile Drivers represent a very exclusive group of professional truck drivers. Exclusive, since the accomplishment includes a mix of hard work, constant attentiveness, pride, loyalty and commitment. It’s an honor to have them wear the PGT Proud Professional badge.”

The event’s top award winners included;

  • Rick Franklin; recipient of the David Levin Award for Company Driver of the Year
  • Steven Dowler; recipient of the Harry ‘Buster’ Barnes Award for Independent Contractor of the Year
  • Gwendolyn Campbell; PGT’s Rookie Driver of the Year

  • Natalie Young; recipient of the Bill Wright Award for Team Player of the Year
  • Alan Harff; Safe Operations Manager of the Year
  • Cindi Janicki; PGT MVP of the Year

“We are so blessed to be able to have 200 of the nation’s top drivers within our fleet,” Gallagher said. “To recognize them each year at this event is just a small token of our appreciation for all they do for PGT, our customers and the communities we serve.”
