Our passionate and experienced team at Masters Trucking Academy is raising the bar in trucking education. With decades of collective experience behind the wheel, under the trucks, and in the DMV, we know firsthand how to prepare our students to thrive on the open road.
It’s easy to see how Edgar — or Ed for short — has risen in the ranks to become Head Instructor at Masters Trucking Academy. As a third generation driver, Ed uses his lifelong experience and training to provide invaluable skills training for new drivers and instructors alike, ensuring success and safety on the road.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way according to Instructor Supervisor Bryan, known for being the responsible, action-focused man with a plan. With his get-it-done mentality and background in mechanics, this second generation driver and Masters student turned instructor has over 10 years of experience under his belt.
Our Front Office Team
Office Manager Kenia Davila has been a steadfast pillar of Masters (and Messiah Trucking Co.) for over 10 years. As the sister to Co-Founder Karla Costilla — and daughter of a veteran trucker — Kenia grew up in the trucking industry and has seen the ins and outs of the trucker life. A former dispatcher herself, Kenia now works behind the scenes to keep the wheels moving every day at Masters.
Known for doing “a little bit of everything” around Masters, Maricruz Aguilar holds the official title of Student Care Manager at Masters. Her outgoing and friendly personality are just two of the countless qualities that make Maricruz a breath of fresh air for our customers and students each day.
After watching her own mother drive for 15 years, Co-Founder and President Karla Costilla managed Messiah Trucking Co. beginning in 2006. In 2019, Masters Trucking Academy opened, and Karla has been helping students to obtain the skills they need to start exciting new careers ever since.
It goes without saying that there are numerous people that have made the journey of Masters Trucking Academy possible — but possibly no one quite as much as Jose Benitez. Together with his wife Mercedes, he gave his time, energy, and knowledge to help co-found Masters in 2017. It is through his gracious willingness to share his 20+ years of expertise that Masters has had the opportunity to achieve the success and growth it has to date.
To Jose and Mercedes, we are eternally grateful.
