December 27, 2023

At Hermann, we value the contributions, knowledge, and experience of our employees, and this month, we’re putting the spotlight on Phil Edinger!

Phil has been a valued member of the Hermann team since March 2007. For the past seven years, Phil has served as a loyal, trustworthy, professional dedicated driver for one of our top customers who manufactures industrial packaging. His commitment and unwavering dedication have earned him the admiration of his colleagues. "Phil is an institution here at Hermann," remarked Bobby McAndrews, a Planner for our Southwest Transportation division who has the pleasure of working closely with Phil. "He is extremely committed to his position and takes the term dedicated very literally!”

Jeff Hermann, President and CEO of Hermann Services, while serving as a terminal manager in our Houston, Texas, location met Phil when he first joined the company. Jeff quickly noticed Phil’s passion for the industry and his work. “Phil's deep respect for the trucking industry resonates in everything he does. He's a model driver for Hermann, setting the bar for his peers with his dedication and passion. His unwavering work ethic is evident in his daily commitment to ensuring exceptional service and exceeding customer expectations. Over the years, Phil's loyalty and dedication to Hermann Services have solidified his position as a valued member of the team, earning him the respect and admiration of colleagues and management alike,” said Jeff.

Outside of work, Phil is an avid Harley rider who cherishes his annual trip to the Sturgis Bike Rally. When asked about his greatest accomplishment outside of work, he humbly mentioned meeting his current wife through "mutual friends and a bike ride."

We are thankful for a trustworthy, loyal, and dedicated driver like Phil and his dedication to serving our customers. Thank you, Phil, for everything you do!
