Meet Victor, our first Portland All Star Driver

April 30, 2017 / Portland

We’re lucky to have stellar driver-partners who help keep the city in motion. To celebrate our All Star Drivers, once a month we’re recognizing an outstanding partner by rewarding them with the ultimate Timbers matchday experience.

Our first local All Star Driver, Victor, along with his brother Ndifreke, enjoyed a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium, a photo opportunity with Timber Joey, Timbers merchandise, and free concessions at the April 22 match against Vancouver.

Get to know Victor:

A native of Nigeria, Victor started driving with Uber to support his wife and children who are still living in his homeland. He prides himself on great customer service, and after driving with Uber for 2 years, has racked up a lot of compliments from riders. Below are just a few examples:

Awesome experience! Victor was very kind and extremely professional!” – Karen

Great experience. Victor even offers water and candy bars. Highly recommended” – Rudolf

Thank you so much, Victor, for getting us home safely last night!! I hope we weren’t too obnoxious! 😊 Happy New Year to you and yours. 🎉” – Ami

Victor is a huge Timbers fan and his favorite player is Fanendo Adi, the team’s leading goal scorer, who also happens to be from Nigeria.
