Employee Spotlight: Rosendo Martinez

Name: Rosendo Martinez

Nickname: Rosie

Job Title: Service Technician

Employed with Vernell’s Interstate Service: 12 years

Favorite pastime: Fishing

Biggest challenge on a call: I once had a call to work on a fuel line behind a CAT engine. There’s not a lot of room in there. It was three hours on the side of the interstate during the summer.

Most rewarding experience on the job: Helping an Illinois State Police trooper. He had parked on the shoulder of the road, but the shoulder gave way and the car tipped. It had to be winched out.

“Rosendo is top in his trade in tires and road service. He is a reliable, hard-working employee with a wonderful attitude. Everyone loves Rosie. We’re very proud to have him on our team.”
