Frank Matteson, Owner Operator of the Month
26 Jan 2017
When it comes to being on the road, you don’t get much more of a dedicated person than Dart owner operator Frank Matteson. Frank, who has been in the trucking industry for 20 years now, has a pure, unequivocal love for being behind the wheel.
Frank was recently named Owner Operator of the Month by Dart. He currently drives regionally in the southern U.S. Frank was surprised when he first heard the news. He said during a recent interview, “It feels great. I strive to do well and do the best I can, but I never thought I would be number one. That is awesome.”
In addition to being the best contractor he can be, nothing makes Frank happier than having “owner operator” as his career title. “I love trucking. I love this atmosphere. This is my home. This is what I want to do the rest of my life,” said Frank.
Now behind the wheel of a Kenworth T680, Frank recently unleashed his creative side with his current truck. "I wanted to do something with my truck -- something unique. So that is where my love of the Pittsburgh Steelers came into play and voile -- I now have a Steelers truck!"
As a proud owner operator-friendly company, Dart is excited to see owner operators take pride in their trucks and customize them. Frank's truck decals are one of example of the many ways Dart owner operators can personalize their truck.
Congratulations once again to Frank on being named Owner Operator of the Month. Dart prides itself on having some of the best owner operators in industry, and Frank is just one of the many examples of that.
Thank you for your dedication and service, Frank!
