A passionate lifelong trainer, John spent 28 years in the Navy, retiring as a Captain with many diverse, world-wide assignments of increasing responsibility.

Bob doesn’t like to brag, so we’ll do it for him: as a professional truck driver, he’s had 35 years, 4 million miles of incident free driving! He has a passion for teaching drivers to be safe, legal and efficient, benefitting drivers and their companies by reducing safety related costs and DOT fines. He believes customer service is a vital skill for truck drivers and incorporates that in his training, along with proper pre-planning so every trip is cost effective, safe and on time. Throughout his career he has worked for commercial trucking companies, been an owner/operator with his own rig, and spent five years as an instructor in the commercial vehicle driving program at Florida State College.
