Any 40th anniversary is a cause of celebration!
In June of 2018, Mark Sullivan, one of IMG’s DATTCO finest motorcoach operators celebrated this landmark anniversary with colleagues and reflected on the many memories from the past four decades.
Mark has driven more than 3.5 million miles over his career. His professionalism and customer service has made him one of the most requested drivers by DATTCO’s clientele. He’s driven famous dignitaries, government officials, professional and collegiate athletes, and tours groups throughout North America.
His favorite trip was the first time he drove a group to British Columbia, Canada, in 1982. He spent 30 beautiful days touring the majestic Canadian Rockies. He has returned to this area several more times with other groups, but will never forget his first experience in this part of the world.
In 2016, Mark was presented with Connecticut Bus Association’s prestigious “Motorcoach Driver of the Year” Award. To be chosen as Connecticut’s Motorcoach Driver of the Year, a driver must demonstrate safe driving with the highest standards in every facet of the profession. To this day, Mark still has an accident-free driving record.
Mark’s stellar safety record has given him the opportunity to work with DATTCO’s Safety & Training Program, where he assists with training and mentoring new drivers, as well as providing remedial training for seasoned drivers.
DATTCO President, Don DeVivo presented Mark with a certificate acknowledging and thanking him for his 40 years of service. “We are fortunate that Mark is willing to share his knowledge of the motorcoach profession, and his experience on the road with our less experienced drivers,” remarked Don DeVivo, President of DATTCO, who has worked with Mark his entire career at the company. “Mark represents DATTCO at the highest of industry standards, and always puts the interests of the company first. I am proud to have him as part of our team.”
