Professional driver James Armstrong was recently honored at the 2nd Quarter Associate Recognition Ceremony. James, who goes by Jim, recently achieved four million safe driving miles. He is only the third Werner driver to do so.
Jim, also known as 007 by his peers, is originally from North Platte, Neb. He has driven for Werner for nearly 36 years and has seen plenty of industry changes during that time. What has inspired him throughout his career has been a strong desire to keep doing the job he loves. Nowadays, he enjoys life on the road with his girlfriend and faithful passenger, Judy.
Regarding his latest achievement, Jim simply said it made him most proud that all his hard work and dedication paid off. As a result, he has been able to achieve something few drivers ever do. His advice to other drivers is to be safe every moment you are driving as it only takes a few seconds for things to go wrong. Jim’s goal is to always stay focused on the job, a strategy that has proven very successful for him.
We thank Jim for all he has done and continues to do for Werner Enterprises. His career is that of a true professional.
