Congratulations to Corey Butterworth, from our agent CMS Relocation & Logistics, on being named a Van Operator of the Month in March.
Here's what Corey had to say,
“When I was 17, my uncle was the warehouseman at CMS, so I went to work in their warehouse for the summer. After finishing high school, I went back to work for them and got my CDL in 2008.
I usually take my family with me in the summer and I plan trips during my kids school breaks. I went to work for the railroad for a few years and one day my daughter asked me, 'Dad, when are we going to start traveling again?' and here I am.
It seems like once you start in this business you always find your way back. It’s feels good to show customers how easy it can be to move across the country when you have good people to get the job done.”
Thanks for all you do, Corey!
