Mike Rapacz named Fourth Quarter Jim Doering Award of Excellence recipient

Kottke Trucking, Inc. is proud to announce that Mike Rapacz is the 2016 fourth quarter recipient of the Jim Doering Award of Excellence. Rapacz has been driving with Kottke Trucking since April 2014.

This is what Rapacz’s nominator said about him: “Mike is dedicated to his job. Does his job very well and never do your hear Mike complain about loads, loading/unloading times – he just simply does his job. Mike like to keep Kurt guessing as to the ’new towns’  Mike seems to find right at check call times. Mike has a sense of humor above all. His quote is ‘it is what it is’. Mike takes pride in his job- not only because that is who he is but also for his two girls. For Mike, dedication and loyalty goes full circle. ‘Work hard and give 100%’, words to live by.”

Thank you, Mike, for working hard and giving your 100% to Kottke Trucking. It is a pleasure to have you on the team.

The Jim Doering Award of Excellence was established in 2014 in honor of our first employee and nearly 40-year employee Jim Doering. The award is designed to honor a driver each quarter that has the same great qualities that made Jim such a special man. The four winners of the quarterly Jim Doering Award of excellence are the finalists for the Duane and Connie Kottke Distinguished Driver of the Year which will be awarded on the first weekend of January.
