Meet one of Cemex USA’s ready-mix drivers
Published by Rebecca Bowden,
Cemex USA greatly values its ready-mix drivers, who always put safety first, focus on customers and efficiently deliver Cemex’ products.
One of these is Jane Galeb, who has been a ready-mix driver for Cemex at the Santa Clara, Calif., plant for 16 years. She owes her success to her hard work. Before joining the Cemex team, Galeb did administrative work, but when her brother told her about an opportunity at Cemex and said that the company would train her, she knew that she wanted to trade in typing for trucking.
“The thing I like the most about my job is being able to go out and see the world—not being in one place, cooped up inside,” she said. “This job is perfect for a girl who’s not worried about getting her fingernails dirty. You can make a nice living doing this. I’m proud I’ve been able to stick it out and do my job to the best of my ability. This is a good company, they have a good safety program and the people are great – it’s like a family here.”
Galeb also likes the fact that she and her fellow drivers serve as the face of the company to its ready-mix customers. “Customer centricity is important for drivers. When we get to a job site, we’re the first ones the customers see. If there’s a problem, we’re the ones who have to take care of it on the scene. We need our customers to know that we have them covered,” she said.
“Cemex is what it is today thanks in large part to drivers like Jane, who live our values, serve our customers and put safety first each and every day. Without them, we simply couldn’t do business,” said Eric Wittmann, Cemex USA West Region President.
