United Road Towing, Inc. Acknowledges Exceptional Leaders

2010 Driver and Support Person of the Year Announced and Honored

MOKENA, IL--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) - United Road Towing (URT), the industry leader in towing, impound management, vehicle disposal, and motorist assistance solutions, continued its commitment to its highly trained professionals by announcing the 2010 driver and support person of the year.

Phillip Storey from URT's Nashville operation, West Nashville Wrecker Service, was awarded driver of the year honors and Christine Rose from URT's Boston operation, Export and Pat's Towing, was awarded the support person of the year.

Phillip has been committed to redefining the towing experience at URT since 2005. In that time, he has mastered all levels of towing and has shared his expertise with his peers. His leadership and mentoring were on display in the spring of 2010 when over 5,500 tows were safely conducted in just 21 days to clear the Nashville metropolitan area after devastating floods hit the area.

Christine has been committed to redefining the towing experience at URT since 2008. Through her leadership in human resources, she has sought and overseen the hiring of only the most passionate, service-minded professionals. She has also eliminated the proverbial billing hassles for municipalities and customers by ensuring transparent accounting processes.

URT honors both the driver and support person of the year annually. They are given an all expense paid vacation with their significant other or spouse and are the guests of honor at URT's annual leadership conference.

Jerry Corcoran, Chief Executive Officer and President of United Road Towing, stated, "At URT, we find, create, and develop leaders at all levels. Our leaders share our dream of redefining towing and the towing experience for all our customers. We recognize and encourage leadership at all levels as well as build teams with talented and motivated leaders. It's imperative that we recognize our employees' accomplishments and commitment. Both Phillip and Christine have embodied this vision in their performance in 2010 and they deserve to be recognized."
