President’s Safe Driver Club Award Winners

Four Xtreme Trucking drivers were recently recognized by the Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association and granted membership to its prestigious President’s Safe Driver Club. Clifford Madosh III, Dale Lau, Charlie O’Laughlin and Jerome Levash (not pictured) received the honor at a banquet held in March.

Established in 1996 by the Wisconsin Council of Safety Supervisors, the President’s Safe Driver Club honors professional truck drivers who demonstrate a commitment to operating at the highest level of safety. Membership is considered one of the greatest achievements of a Wisconsin truck driving career. Once a driver is nominated by a company in the Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association, the subsequent review process is exhaustive, and their selection is far from guaranteed. Membership to the President’s Safe Driver Club is awarded based on the following criteria:

  • Three or more consecutive years of service with the same carrier
  • No accidents during this period (on or off duty)
  • A clean Motor Vehicle Record with no citations (on or off duty)
  • Must be dispatched out of a Wisconsin terminal and drive at least 10,000 miles per year

Once a driver earns initial membership, they accrue additional credits for each consecutive year by maintaining a safe driving record.

Xtreme Trucking’s Safety Director, Wendy Santkuyl, and Driver Success Manager, Jonas Lundberg, attended the membership banquet to help support and celebrate the achievements of the company’s extraordinary drivers. Xtreme Trucking also gifted Clifford, Dale, Charlie and Jerome each a swag bag and apparel as a small token of appreciation for their tremendous ongoing accomplishments.

“Our Safe Drivers set the standard for excellence at Xtreme Trucking and throughout the transportation industry,” said Craig Waters, Xtreme Trucking’s Recruiting and Marketing Manager. “Earning their membership required constant hard work, focus, and integrity. It’s an honor to have these four men exemplify the Xtreme Trucking brand wherever they go.”
