I have been here 16 years, and it’s my drivers that keep me at Venture. I’m very understanding of frustrations on the road because I drove. I know how it feels to be stuck, when a customer won’t let you unload, and I know how you have to make a judgment call when the weather is unsafe. My relationship with my drivers is very important to me.
