ROLE IN THE INDUSTRY: Owner Operator
COMPANY: Clean Harbors
HOMETOWN: Chicago, IL
YEARS IN THE INDUSTRY: 23 Years
FIRST YEAR ATTENDED MATS: 2022
Why Did You Attend MATS?
“I attended MATS because when I owned my own authority, a lot of customers I dispatched for were going to the show, so it became a place to reunite and get questions answered about the industry. What I did not expect was to see the immense job recruitment presence, which helped me sign on with Clean Harbors at the 2022 MATS show.”
Why Do You Recommend MATS?
“MATS was unlike anything I have ever seen before. If somebody would have told me what MATS is like, I would not have believed them. It blew my expectations out of the water with the knowledge I learned. It is truly a one stop shop for everything in the trucking industry that you could ever need for your job.”
“MATS was truly a 10 out of 10 experience for me. Going into the 2023 show, I know I am going to set aside a spending budget to make sure I can order the best new products to improve my operations.”
“I used to own my authority, and I was delivering a load in the Louisville area, and decided to stay in the area a little longer and attend the MATS show. I ran into Clean Harbors as soon as I walked through the doors, who I had a few years ago been in contact with about signing on to be an owner operator. I decided to approach the situation again, and was able to sign on as an owner operator in the Chicago area right then and there at the show. MATS helped me secure a new job because of the companies that were present.”
Hands On Demonstrations:
“At MATS, I was able to get hands-on demonstrations and experience with companies that have products that you hear about, but aren’t able to actually ever see anywhere else. I was able to see the latest and greatest in tools and trucking mats that I had a need for coming into the 2022 show year. There is nothing like being able to physically see and touch these products in person to find the best fit.”
