Circle of Excellence Logo


Congratulations to our 2020 Circle of Excellence Recipients! Each month our associates nominate an Associate of the Month, and while we always want to recognize all our associates, between the two regions, there can only be two individuals a month awarded this title. TSG President Rob Doyle acknowledged the challenges of this year, and our associates' commitment and determination to overcome:


"I'm always impressed by the Excellence all our associates bring to work each and every day. The past 14 months have been challenging for all of us with COVID-19 halting our day-to-day activities. Through it all, our associates marshaled on.

This is a testament to all of you and your work ethic. The Shippers Group cannot begin to thank everyone for sticking through the difficulties and meeting the challenge. My sincere thank you to all Associates who were nominated and those who won Associate of the Month."


Each associate has been recognized by The Shippers Group, their supervisors, and their coworkers as being individuals who go above and beyond every day in support of our customers and our team. Bravo!
