Eleven of those referrals have already been hired and are in training, and one additional driver teammate is currently in the hiring process. Wes’ innovative idea of a Facebook page announcing that MBM was looking for qualified drivers, giving positive information on the company, and explaining how they could apply, has earned him the first place prize. Bobby York, Wes’ transportation manager said, “Wes displays strong leadership skills every day and is a major contributor to the success of OKC. Wes did a great job in recruiting and is still actively recruiting teammates. The skills that Wes demonstrates are that of a leader, coach, and team player. Teammates are viewing Wes as a leader and he willingly helps all of his teammates. Wes is a major contributing factor in the success that OKC is currently having.”
