Billy Villa

MPC driver Billy Villa was recently honored by the National Private Truck Council (NPTC) as a National Driver All-Star. The award is given to drivers who have demonstrated high performance standards against their peer drivers throughout the county based on customer service, safety, adherence to company standards, regulatory compliance and community service. This is the 11th consecutive year an MPC driver has been recognized.

Villa has been driving for MPC for 31 years and has accumulated more than 2.7 million miles in his career. In addition to his driving, Villa is the primary trainer for all new drivers at the Niles (Michigan) terminal.

“Billy is a true professional and always respectful and courteous,” said Transport Operations Compliance Manager Robert Leipheimer. “Billy makes flawless deliveries and uses his professional driving skills to navigate very tight areas in stations and in traffic without incident. He considers not only his own safety but the safety of others when driving and making deliveries.”
