(Blooming Prairie MN March 2016) – Kevin Tomlinson didn’t end up driving trucks like his father and grandfather, but he is pretty darn good at fixing them.

Tomlinson, winner of the 2015 CCJ Career Leadership Award, has spent 37 years in the trucking industry after graduating from a six-month technician program in 1979.

He has been a Technology and Maintenance Council board member for the past six years, and is currently the Maintenance Director for South Shore Transport in Ohio.

Minimizer sponsors the CCJ Career Leadership Award.

“Congratulations to Kevin on a well-deserved honor,” Minimizer CEO and Chief Visionary Craig Kruckeberg said. “Trucking is in his blood, and I’m glad to see his dedication to the industry lead to this distinguished award.”
