“I’ve always looked at my job as if it were my own business and have attempted to make a commitment to making it successful,” says Danny. “Customer Service is the key component to what we do. If Bridgestone sees value in what I do, it gives Bridgestone value. If CPC sees value in what I do, it gives value to CPC. The biggest value I can provide to each company is having a strong work ethic and treating the people that I interact with respect.”
Danny’s off-time from work is dedicated to his family. He enjoys spending time with his wife, Pamela and daughters Melissa and Rebecca. He is a veteran of the US Army and spent most of his service time overseas in Europe. He is an active member of Bethel Baptist Church in his hometown of Marion, NC.

When BATO reinstituted its Driver of the Year program in 2007, Danny was the epitome of what we had hoped for in representing the fleet as a Driver of the Year.
