Driver Recruitment Contest at Cardinal Logistics Management Delivers New Ford F-150 Truck


Keys to a Brand New Cardinal Red Ford F-150 Handed Over to Illinois Driver as Part of the Team Cardinal Recruitment Contest

Concord, NC (September 15, 2005) -- Whats big, bold and Cardinal red? Its the fully-loaded Ford F-150 truck that Clinton McGowan of Solid Transport, LLC, an independent contractor with Cardinal Logistics Management Corporation in Chicago , IL , won last month as part of a driver recruitment incentive from Cardinal Logistics Management one of the nations fastest growing third-party logistics firms. McGowan was the lucky recipient in the Cardinal Logistics Ford Fantasy Referral Bonus Program, an employee driver recruitment referral bonus program that North Carolina-based Cardinal Logistics Management Corporation launched in April 2005 for all employee drivers and independent contractors.

When an employee driver or independent contractor thinks enough of Cardinal Logistics Management to refer others to join our team and we bring them on board we reward the referring driver with an extra referral incentive, explains Vin McLoughlin, Cardinals Chairman of the Board. This program is just one of the many ways that Cardinal is working to creatively recruit drivers to join the fast growing team at Cardinal Logistics Management.

In August, McLoughlin and Cardinal Logistics CEO, Tom Hostetler , presented the brand new, fully-equipped Ford F-150 pickup truck to Cardinal independent driver, McGowan, who was flanked a the presentation ceremony by his wife, children and friends. McGowan was surprised and delighted at winning the truck, valued at more than $20,000.

Tom Hostetler and I were thrilled to be in Chicago to present this red hot truck to Clinton and his wonderful family. Good things do happen to good people.

Further, this award shows our company's commitment to finding and retaining the best drivers, said McLoughlin. With great people working safely to serve our customers, Cardinal will continue with our successful growth strategy for the long term.

Finding and retaining valuable drivers, like Clinton McGowan, is our prime operating strategy and we hope to find hundreds more drivers who share his values and professionalism," Hostetler added. It was so rewarding to be able to hand the keys to this new vehicle over to Mr. McGowan with his wife, daughter and friends there. His daughter wasn't sure what to make of it, but her dad was pretty excited! We were happy to give the truck to him for his contribution to our referral program, and we look forward to coming up with some more creative ideas that motivate our driving force at Team Cardinal to stay focused and continue to refer qualified drivers to this critical piece of our business, Hostetler continued.

The Ford F-150 that McGowan is now driving has a high-output V-6 engine for performance and gas mileage, 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, cruise control, A/C, power steering, power windows and doors with a remote keyless entry system and numerous other amenities.
