Roan earns MV Transportation’s national award

DALLAS, TEXAS – MV Transportation, the largest privately-owned passenger transportation contracting firm based in the United States, is pleased to announce the 2012 national winner of the company’s top safety honor, the Katherine McClary Award.

On Sept. 5, 2013, MV leadership presented the Katherine McClary Award to Russel (Darrel) Roan. Roan has served as a paratransit operator with the Greenville Transit System (GTS) for more than 17 years. During his tenure, Roan has maintained an impeccable safety and customer service record. Through his professionalism, work ethic, safety record, and longstanding community service, Roan is recognized as a leader in MV’s Greenville division. In addition to receiving the 2012 Katherine McClary Award, Roan was selected as a Driver of the Quarter for the Greenville division in 2011 and 2012, and as the GTS Driver of the Year in 2011 and 2012. Prior to joining MV, Roan served as a City of Greenville firefighter for 25 years.

“Mr. Roan joins a group of past award winners who collectively embody the spirit of safety and service that honors the memory of Katie McClary,” said Senior Vice President of Safety Steve Predmore. “We are fortunate and proud to have an operator of Mr. Roan’s caliber on the MV team,” added CEO Carter Pate. “He demonstrates his dedication to the citizens of Greenville every day.”

Established to honor the memory of Katie McClary who was tragically killed in a bus accident in 2004, MV’s Katherine McClary Award recognizes the safest operators at the company. Award recipients are chosen from the more than 15,000 MV operators. The awardees are among the company’s finest operators and are recognized for their enduring focus on safety, customer service, and community involvement.

In addition to the award itself, MV honored Roan with a company luncheon at its Greenville division, as well as a cash award and an all-expenses-paid trip to Disney World for his family.
