    • Name: Michael Twigg
      Title: Director-AIS
      Employee Since: 2000

      “I began my employment with Werner Enterprises in February of 2000 as a Web Designer. In 2001, I was promoted to Project Manager and gained responsibility for the Java Development team, the ColdFusion Development team and the .Net Development team, respectively. In 2007, I was promoted to Associate Director and assumed the role of Architect. This January I was promoted to Director and became responsible for the SMART Transportation System and all associated development teams. I have played a vital role in many projects and initiatives during my career at Werner. I oversaw the implementation of FreitRater and the Miles Calculation Service, utilized by both SMART and the AS/400. I managed the initial implementation of iView/WEconnect, the Imaging Modernization Project and the HR Management System. Currently, I am focused on establishing a consistent corporate transportation model and identifying common business processes, information flows and quality initiatives that will reduce complexity, add stability and continue to make Werner transportation systems best in class. I attribute much of my initial success to hard work and a willingness to help others. I established myself as someone who could pick up new technologies quickly and propose well thought out solutions that satisfied both the immediate need, as well as the “big picture.” As I moved into management and my focus became more strategic, I encouraged an environment of openness and respect by listening to contrasting views and examining them for value, giving recognition to well thought out ideas and trusting my people to do their job and make the correct decisions within their level of empowerment. I surround myself with good people – if they succeed, we succeed.”
