A celebration for more than three decades of dedicated hard work from Val Breitag recently took place at The Larson Group in Springfield, MO. An award recognizing Val's years of service was presented by chief operations officer Kory Larson.
“Val is one of TLG’s OGs,” Kory said. “He is a dedicated soldier whose work ethic and integrity is second to none. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with him all these years.”
After serving in the Army in his early 20s, Val met TLG co-founder, Claire, and followed the Larson family all the way from South Dakota to Missouri where he started his career in Peterbilt sales.
Val’s success has led him to being one of the most award-winning Peterbilt salesmen in the nation, earning more Peterbilt Top 100 nominations than most can claim. Val also has a fascinating story about his time as a truck driver, including experiencing the infamous Mt. St. Helens explosion of 1980 while hauling meat – watch his video interview below or read his extended story here >
