The event honored five service technicians who earned Diamond Technician certification, five parts department employees, a truck sales representative, and three administrative employees.

Each honoree received a Circle of Excellence leather jacket to commemorate their achievement. The event also recognized 22 technicians who earned Master Technician certification and will be working towards completing their ASE certifications to earn Navistar’s Diamond certification.

The Circle of Excellence recognition program is part of Beltway Companies’ Operation: Clearpath, an initiative
focused on employee education and career development.

It is also a system that provides transparency for advancement and the resources to help employees achieve their career goals, the company says. The recognition event honors employees who have met the performance criteria in their department, and progressed in their personal development through education, training or job advancement.

Mike Sizemore, Director of Maintenance with Cowan Systems and keynote speaker for the evening, spoke of the partnership the two companies have and the importance of education in the constantly advancing transportation industry.

“Our company’s greatest asset is our people,” says Jack Saum, Dealer Principal. “Our Circle of Excellence recognition honors employees who set the bar for performance. We are very proud of what our honorees have achieved, and we believe that their example will inspire other employees to pursue their own path to achievement and excellence.”

The recognition event also honored two retiring employees: Mel Fair, truck sales representative who has worked for Beltway Companies since 1992, and Terry Morehouse, service technician and road test driver, who was with the company since 2003.
