In 1999, The Office Pinnacle Award and The Driver Pinnacle Award were created and first awarded to recognize an associate and a driver who best embodied Clark & Reid's mission 'to be the best.' These individuals consistently maintained the highest level of quality performance and have proven that anything short of excellence is simply not acceptable. The award continues to be the company's most prestigious, providing ample recognition to these individuals and an opportunity to be recognized by their peers.

The 2006 Driver Pinnacle Award was presented to Frank Rojas at the annual year-end meeting. As the recipient of this award, Frank's performance was measured based on total weight carried, claims frequency and costs, customer evaluations and safety compliance. Over the course of the year, Frank also needed to reach a ranking as Clark & Reid's #1 rated driver and achieve 'preferred booking status' based on our internal driver rating system.

Frank started at Clark & Reid in 1999 as a driver trainee. His diligence and perseverance allowed him to obtain his CDL license in May of 1999.

Today, Frank manages his own move team as a company driver for Clark & Reid and is frequently requested by transferees. When he is not on the road, he travels to Guatemala where he is actively involved in the construction of an orphanage for displaced children.

Jim Jones was the recipient of this year's 2006 Office Pinnacle Award. Joining Clark & Reid in 1969 as a driver, Jim has held various position with the company including Operations Manager, Director of Quality Assurance, Planning Manager and Regional Operations Manager. Today, Jim holds a On-Site Quality Supervisor position performing pre-move surveys and quality 'spot-check' inspections. Throughout the years, Jim has embraced the mission of the company with his positive attitude and overall dedication and is truly considered an asset to Clark & Reid.
