Safety/Recruiting Director, Capital Driver Leasing
Rolando is a Massachusetts Army National Guard veteran and a certified director of safety thru the North American Transportation Management Institute.
He grew up fascinated with trucks and had many family members influence his passion for the industry. He became a lease driver with Contract Transport Services (CTS) in 2004 and was employed with CTS from 2004 to 2013 during which time he became their lead driver trainer and driver mentor for new and current company drivers. In 2014 he was approached by Bill Crowley to become the operation manager for Capital Driver Leasing (CDL). After a few years he assumed the roll of safety recruiting director and has been in that roll ever since. He is excited to venture into the industry in a more global scale and assist companies to achieve their safety, viability and sustainability goals.
