About Our Instructors


Jeff & Janis Roach,
Instructors

Jeff Roach graduated with a B.S. from Abilene Christian University in 1986 and has been in the transportation/freight brokerage industry ever since. He first worked as a traffic manager. He then went to work for a major less-than-truckload carrier, whose philosophy was that you needed to experience every phase of the job before achieving a management position. He started out working nights on the freight docks, supervising the loading and unloading of shipments. He then worked as an inside account sales representative, and was soon promoted to outside sales for national accounts. He then obtained a position with a major truckload carrier with an airfreight division, where he was the Vice-President of National Accounts. In 1995 he began operating his own freight brokerage, which he grew into a multi-million dollar business. He began developing freight broker/agent courses in 2001.

Jan Roach graduated with B.S. from Baylor University in 1982. She entered the transportation field in 1995 when she became a partner in a freight brokerage operation. She has over 10 years of experience in running a brokerage/agency including sales, marketing, accounting/claims, and day-to-day operations inside of a brokerage. She has also provided training in the industry since 2001.

Both Jeff and Janis have an entertaining and inspiring teaching style. Graduates leave the course overloaded with practical information, helpful resources and the motivation to change their life (just read through the testimonial page).
