Ms. Aversano began her career in the transportation and relocation industry in 1981 when she joined a commercial moving company in New York City as an Office Manager. As Ms. Aversano’s knowledge and experience of the business grew, so did her realm of responsibilities. In 1983, Ms. Aversano was charged to open two new branch locations for her firm in New Jersey and Georgia. After the successful launch of these two locations, Ms. Aversano was promoted to General Manager where she built a reputable portfolio of prominent clients. In 1991, Ms. Aversano joined Victory Van Lines, a large agent for United Van Lines in the northeast to expend her knowledge into broader aspects of the relocation industry.

In 1993, Ms. Aversano joined Ryder System, Inc., a fortune 500 transportation industry leader to help them launch and support their new full-service, corporate relocation product line, Ryder Move Management (RMM).

Over the next six years, she held progressively responsible positions including Operations Supervisor and Manager of Training & Performance.
