TORONTO, Ont. – George Iacono, vice-president of Global Driver Services, has been named Executive of the Year for 2000 by the Private Motor Truck Council.
Iacono was honured for his outstanding performance in an executive capacity with Global Driver Services as well as for his many contributions to the private trucking community and the PMTC.
At Global, Iacono was responsible for obtaining and now for maintaining the company’s ISO 9002 certification. As the quality coordinator, he is responsible for ensuring that the ISO certification is maintained throughout the semi-annual facility audits. As a result of his efforts, Global has received the Transportation Safety Association Achievement award every year since 1996. This award recognizes companies that have attained an accident record below industry average for the three preceding consecutive years.
Iacono currently sits on the board of directors of the PMTC and the Transportation Safety Association. In addition to his participation in all PMTC functions, Iacono is active with the safety committee, assists with the annual safety seminar, and participates actively with the human resources committee. He also represents PMTC at the Toronto Regional Truck Driving Championships.
“I believe one of the main components of Global’s success has been the drivers, and I would like to acknowledge them,” Iacono said as he accepted his award.
In addition to his work-related activities, Iacono also participates in school board and minor sports events in Mississauga, Ont. where he resides with wife Dawn and their three children. n
