Hello, my name is Jeff. I’m a driver from San Antonio, Texas, and I’ve been with Crete since 2005. Although I’ve been in the trucking industry since 1989, where I first got my start as a mechanic. Then I started driving full time in 1995, running over the road. Then I came here about 10 years later, so I’ve spent more than half my driving career here at Crete. At the time I was looking for a company that believed in running compliant while allowing us to make a good living, and thankfully I found that. So, between that and having nice equipment to drive, great group of mechanics throughout our network, and also great staff in the offices and everywhere else within the company it’s a great organization. We’re all part of a team here, wether you’re a driver or anybody else. We are all part of that team that’s focused on customer service. I’m very thankful for that. I’m also an avid fitness fanatic. I participate in various events like running and cycling and I’m also an avid weight lifter too. I’ve had to learn how to stay in shape out here on the road and also try to eat right, and there’s a lot that you can do out here if you know how to manage your time right. Thankfully with the way we run here, we can still find time to take care of ourselves if you make it a priority. I’m very thankful that I’ve been able to do that. If you’re the kind of driver that likes to work hard and play hard and be proactive when it comes to customer service this is a great place to be. I don’t plan on going anywhere else. Thanks to everyone, this has been a great outfit to work for, and I plan on sticking around for awhile so… anyway to everybody out there please be safe and find time to have some fun! That’s what life is all about after all, right? Take care.
