Richard Sharpe Receives the Volvo Trucks Canada, Canadian Fleet Maintenance Manager of the Year Award


The Canadian Fleet Maintenance Manager of the Year Award has become synonymous with integrity, wisdom, initiative, and resolve. It also represents sacrifice, contribution, community, and overall betterment within our industry and has become a highly respected means for the industry to recognize exemplary, benchmarking and trend-setting industry peers. An independent judging committee comprised of trade journalists and past award recipients participate in the demanding selection process which includes criteria such as; major accomplishments and innovations of the individual, and the nominee's contributions to the industry and community in general.

Richard Sharpe has been in the industry for over 30 years and is working with MacKinnon Transport, one of Canada's Top 50 best-managed companies. He is responsible for over 700 pieces of equipment and a department of 20+ employees.

"While preparing for today, I had the chance to learn a little more about our recipient", said Don Coldwell of Volvo Trucks Canada as he presented the award to Richard, "and these are some of the words used by his peers and co-workers to describe his attributes and values: [Rich] motivates, encourages, respects, pays attention to detail, has a positive attitude, is a leader, has safety as a priority. And to paraphrase one of Richard's co-workers, 'Rich is not only one of the most knowledgeable, but also the most sincere team leader I have had the honor to work with. I have grown as a person because of the encouragement and support given to me."

Evan MacKinnon acknowledged that this was "the second time a MacKinnon Transport manager of maintenance was honored with this recognition. We're very proud", he stated, "to have the opportunity to display this trophy in our lobby once again. I believe this award by Volvo Trucks Canada is the highest form of National recognition a Canadian maintenance professional can receive".
