Speaker: Lorena Camargo, CEO and Founder, Pearl Transportation & Logistics
Lorena Camargo has been living logistics from a young age. She started in the business at age 17 and worked her way up to Vice President of Operations in a courier company. At age 24 she decided she was ready to strike out on her own. Because no bank would risk lending to a 24-year-old upstart, Lorena borrowed $25,000 from a friend of a friend and started her own company, PearlTrans Logistics in Los Angeles.
She’s built Pearl on innovation, quality and teamwork. PearlTrans prides itself in being a full-service transportation provider offering customized same-day transportation solutions. Today, that company delivers everything everywhere from human tissue to aircraft parts in Southern California, throughout the US and even internationally.
In 2020, Lorena was elected to serve on the board of directors of the Customized Logistics & Delivery Association (CLDA), who advances the interests of the final mile sector of the supply chain through advocacy, networking and education. She credits the association for bringing some of her most influential mentors into her life and forging business relationships that have helped grow her business.
She is also a current executive board member of the Silicon Valley chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners. Lorena is a graduate of the Executive Management Program at UCLA Anderson School of Management.
