For nearly a quarter of a century, William N. has been a valuable asset to the Hogan team. William has seen it all – even being part of Hogan’s first car hauling team with his son-in-law. Now, William is sticking with solo driving and car haul training. His positive and professional attitude highlights him as an outstanding driver and person.
William advises other drivers with, “Slower is faster.” Essentially, if you take your time and do things safely and correctly, it’ll be better for you in the long run. William’s words of wisdom come from his 26 years of experience in trucking. Originally, William started driving a truck for the same reason a lot of people do: to make money. Throughout the years, though, William developed his trucking career into a lifestyle. William is always up for a challenge, and he credits his success in trucking to his loving and caring wife.
“Hogan has been good to me,” said William. “It’s a large trucking company with a small company feel to it.”
When he’s not in the truck, William enjoys spending time with his wife, hunting, and fishing. Although he is particularly fond of the mountains in the northwest, William hopes to one day visit the opposite corner of the country: Key West, Florida.
Thank you to William for sticking with Hogan throughout your career – and for all of the laughs!
You know how some people have work spouses? These team drivers are married! Jerry and Gina M. have been part of the Hogan team for nearly 13 years with 100% on-time service!
You know how some people have work spouses? These team drivers are married! Jerry and Gina M. have been part of the Hogan team for nearly 13 years with 100% on-time service. Both Gina and Jerry have been driving for decades, 33 and 40 years respectively. Gina, focused and determined, broke into a male-dominated industry with ease. Despite having experience in the corporate world, Gina insisted that it was time to step away from the desk and hit the road. Maybe that was because her husband made it sound so great. According to Jerry, trucking turned his life around and set him on a path to success. Thanks to trucking, Jerry and Gina were able to pay off their home and put their two sons through college. Jerry started driving a straight truck during the day, and he would practice backing up in a semi in the parking lot at night. When someone at his company unexpectedly quit, Jerry rose to the occasion, and the rest is history.
Driving as a team is not without its challenges. At the beginning of their careers, Gina and Jerry were on opposite schedules. They went from not seeing each other that much to spending every moment together in a small space. That’s quite an adjustment. Gina even confessed that she nearly left Jerry at a truck stop – ON ACCIDENT! Going from a solo driver to a team driver can do that to a person. Now, the pair gets along well, allowing the other to do things their own way and putting their faith in each other to stay safe. With decades of experience under their belts, Gina and Jerry agree that safety is crucial when it comes to trucking, no matter how long you’ve been a driver.
“You can take a curve slowly a lot of times,” said Jerry, “But you can only take it fast once.”
“Distance is your best friend on the road,” said Gina. “Take your time and stop what you’re doing if you don’t feel safe.”
With their children and grandbabies in mind, Gina and Jerry prioritize communication and pay attention to weather and traffic conditions along their routes. While they enjoy the lakes, beaches, and mountains in the U.S., Gina and Jerry hope to visit Italy one day in their retirement. In the meantime, Gina has been insisting that they visit national parks at the behest of Jerry (but he ultimately enjoys it).
Gina and Jerry’s operations team at Hogan recognize that they are two in a million. Hogan is lucky to have this dynamic duo on our fleet!
