Bowling Green, KY

Mark Green lives in Bowling Green, Kentucky with his wife of thirteen years, Megan, and his 11 year- old daughter, Taylor. Mark joined Brown in 2007 and has always been conscientious, hard-working, and laser-focused on safety. If you know Mark at all, you know he's happiest on the road where he is truly "head of the household" in his truck. His wife and daughter are proud of his work ethic and are quick to remind him that they rule the house! In his spare time, Mark enjoys watching UFC and NASCAR, playing guitar, spending time at the firing range, and maintaining the lawn. Often you will find Mark and Megan rooting on their daughter, Taylor, as she climbs the Taekwondo ranks. We’re glad he’s on Taylor’s, and Brown’s team!

Lexington, NC

Ertle joined Brown in 2008 and he is now one of our most dependable drivers. Over the past 12 years he has continually proven himself to be a consummate professional. Both customers and operations staff appreciate Ertle’s respectfulness and professionalism. He is skilled, courteous, and safe; his hard work and safety mindedness makes him an invaluable and appreciated member of the Brown family. When Ertle isn’t working, you’re still likely find him on the road - he enjoys time with his family, riding his Harley Davidson, or driving one of his muscle cars.

Brown has been fortunate to have had Mike Surles as a company driver for 18 years, and we hope he will be here for many more to come. He is an ambitious driver who puts unfailing effort into his dedication to safety and professionalism. Every time you meet Mike, you are greeted with warmth and a smile. Mike knows wells that one reason for his success is the support of his family and wife of 38 years, Rosie. Mike enjoys traveling and driving for Brown, and, appreciates that his job allows him to be an active father and grandfather to his three children and seven grandchildren, with whom he loves spending time. He is also very active in his church, Big Union Christian Church where he was recently appointed to the Deacon Board, as well as the head outdoor grill man for the church.
