Lance PshigodaI started observing the industry waves Drive My Way was making a couple years ago. The Transportation sector has always been in dire need of automation and streamlined solutions around driver hiring cycles, and it’s been years since I’ve seen an organization that I thought would make an impact the way Tenstreet did when they emerged into the market. That was a very exciting time, and I greatly enjoyed the process efficiencies we provided to our clients.

Drive My Way handles an entirely different type of problem employers face. After seeing the client experience firsthand and realizing the entirely new technology-based solution of matching drivers to employers and the matchmaker services that Drive My Way offers, I feel extremely excited to be joining an organization who will be the next industry disrupter and change the Transportation landscape to help employers reach their goals,” shared Lance.

Starting at DAC Services in 2003, Lance has been involved in every aspect of driver recruiting, retention, qualification, and safety protocol development. He has worked with industry specific leaders like Hireright, Tenstreet, and now Drive My Way. 

Lance is a graduate of Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and currently resides in Skiatook, OK with his wife and two children.  

We are thrilled to have Lance join our team at Drive My Way. He is an industry expert who brings a refreshing passion for driver recruiting and helps companies solve their challenges in new innovative ways,” said Beth Potratz, CEO of Drive My Way
