Guillermo co-founded SmartHop to improve the livelihood of millions of hard-working truckers and bring sustainable financial freedom to trucking families across the United States. Originally from Venezuela, an entrepreneur at heart, he founded a trucking company and built it to about 500 employees. He then came to the United States where, after completing a program at Columbia University, Guillermo started a local LTL trucking company in Miami, FL, which he grew steadily into an FTL over-the-road-operation with more than 40 trucks in total. Running a small fleet, Guillermo noticed the disadvantages owner operators and small companies face in their daily operations, and he quickly realized that he wanted to help others with the tools and resources which, as a carrier, he didn’t have. At SmartHop, he leads the organization towards its goal of leveling the playing field in the trucking industry for hardworking independent owner operators and small carriers.
