For the Miles You Run...
I want to share my story with you. Please take the time to read and understand what trucking means to me.
My name is Michael Barr. I can gladly say with pride I am living my childhood dream now. It was always my goal to become a trucking business owner and I never wanted to be anything else. I have been in the trucking industry since I graduated college. Over time, I worked my way up the ladder. In 2012, I became the co-owner of JM Bozeman. This was just the start to a great success story.
By the end of 2016, I became the sole owner of JMB. The fleet expanded from 65 to 200 trucks in a matter of a few years. There are over 200 drivers and about 50 office employees, including mechanics here today. JM Bozeman originally started in 1992.
Moving forward in life, I almost quit college between my sophomore and junior year to become a truck driver. I called the recruiters at JB Hunt. They had a CDL school and I had grown tired of classrooms and college. I laugh to myself recalling this. Boy, I did not know what I was thinking at the time. My father threw a fit when he heard the news and talked me out of it. Without giving up my hopes of trucking, I began to research trucking companies my junior year of college, trying to figure out how to get an interview. Arkansas was a hot commodity for the trucking industry. I was offered a job at American Freightways. It was the best company to work for at the time, in my opinion. I started on the LTL side as a management trainee. I received my CDL and learned how to drive. The rest is history.
Due to my background in trucking, I believe I know what is best for a driver to succeed at a company. I have instilled all my morals and values into JM Bozeman and would love for you to join and see what it is all about. It is not everyday you find as unique of a company as JM Bozeman Enterprises!
You heard it here first!
We are excited at the thought of having you on-board.
