Mister "P" hosted Thunder over Louisville party

Mister "P" Express hosted customers, friends and family for Thunder Over Louisville at the Galt House Saturday evening. The event has become a tradition as a way of saying thank you.

Company founder, Adair County native, Dr. Allan (Mister P) Parnell, believes in giving back, working and living by the Golden Rule. He credits the power of prayer and a company ethic of family values for the continued growth even through last year's pandemic.

Mister "P" Express, an award winning contract carrier and driving school with 48-state and Canadian authority, is headquartered on a 55 acre campus in the River Ridge industrial park, Jeffersonville, IN.

There are over 300 employees now, and immediate positions open for drivers as well as for students in the on-site CDL school.

"With a serious driver shortage in America," Mister P says, "our company is dedicated to helping men and women who want careers in this industry to have the opportunity."

That was the motivation for starting the Parnell Commercial Driving School which trains, tests and certifies future drivers.

Mister P's daughter, President and CEO Cynthia Collier, is credited with having led development of the loyal customer base and they both take great pride in her recruitment of the third generation - Rebecca Estes, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and Bryan Carr, Vice President of Operations - to bridge the company values and mission into the future.
