“I am excited to take another step with EQUINOX. The trucking industry is ready to adopt technology at an increasingly faster rate."
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 05, 2012
EQUINOX Owner-Operator Solutions, the transportation business services firm that offers mobile and online bookkeeping, taxes, profit and loss statements, and consulting to the truckload and less-than-truckload transportation industries, today announced the appointment of Colton Lawrence as President. Mr. Lawrence is a 10-year veteran of accounting and business services and now assumes the role of President after serving over 2 years as EQUINOX’s Vice President of Finance.
Mr. Lawrence began his tenure at EQUINOX as Director of Accounting Services in January of 2010. He quickly ascended to the role of Vice President of Finance, where he focused his efforts on implementing technologies that automated the bookkeeping, reconciliation, and financial statement preparation processes. These improvements, say EQUINOX staff members, increased EQUINOX’s ability to respond in real time to day-to-day changes in a client’s trucking operation.
“I am excited to take another step with EQUINOX as we continue to push forward in rolling out our vision,” said Mr. Lawrence. “The trucking industry is ready to adopt technology at an increasingly faster rate, and our products and services enable drivers to use technology to understand and operate their businesses better, even in real time.”
As President, Mr. Lawrence intends to focus on expanding EQUINOX’s product line and reaching into new transportation markets. “Our footprint in truckload transportation is strong, but customers in the courier, LTL, and passenger transportation industries are just getting to know us,” Lawrence said. “Our goal will be getting to know and helping these customers.”
EQUINOX is a wholly-owned subsidiary of OnRamp Transportation Services, which markets tractors, trailers and parts and service to independent contractors and owner-operators throughout the United States. OnRamp markets these products primarily in partnership with the carriers with whom these drivers contract to haul freight. EQUINOX’s technology-driven business services work in conjunction with OnRamp’s products to provide drivers with the right equipment and the right expertise to operate successfully in the transportation industry.
“We are thrilled to have Colton take an even stronger leadership role at EQUINOX,” said Spencer Angerbauer, President of OnRamp Transportation Services. “His vision aligns perfectly with where we believe the industry is going, and having EQUINOX serve as the tool drivers use to improve their business performance during even tough times is very gratifying.”
