Moody Logistics has announced its ‘Driver of the Year’, who is planning on taking a new route to progress his career with the company.
Mark Fisher from Seaton Burn collected his trophy at Moody Logistics’ annual staff awards. The awards recognise the achievements, dedication and commitment of its employees in areas such as attendance, long service and accident-free operations.
He was chosen by his colleagues as well as meeting a series of award criteria including recording no accidents, maintaining vehicles to a high standard and exceptional levels of attendance.
Having worked for the Cramlington-based business for almost four years as a Multi-Drop Driver making deliveries to customers across the North East, Mark is now eyeing the next stage of his career by embarking on an Open University course.
Funded by Moody Logistics, Mark is studying towards a Supply Chain Management qualification through the Institution of Supply Chain Management, with the ambition of securing a management position with the company in an operations role.
Mark Fisher said: “I was very proud to be named Driver of the Year, especially as it’s voted for by my work colleagues who are all very good at the jobs they do. I really enjoy the driving part of my job, particularly interacting with customers on deliveries, but working towards this qualification will expand my opportunities.
“Moody’s have always been really supportive and that’s continuing with their backing for this qualification, which I hope will be a springboard to new things within the company.”
Richard Moody, Operations Director at Moody Logistics, said: “Mark is a great example of the high calibre of people we have in our business and we are delighted to support him in his career ambitions. He was very deserving of his Driver of the Year award and I am sure that he will apply the same commitment and dedication to his studies as he progresses his career with Moody Logistics.”
