President

Jason Beardall

What people really think: Motivator, quick-minded, driven, intense, devoted
Favorite quote: “Thoughts lead to acts, acts lead to habits, habits lead to character—and our character will determine our eternal destiny.” – Ezra Taft Benson

Jason is the President of England Logistics. He joined England Logistics in 2004 and has served in various positions within brokerage services, sales and operations. During his tenure he has worked tirelessly to build an organization with a culture known to offer opportunity for employee growth. England Logistics has grown substantially under Jason’s direction. Not only in size and profitability, but also as a company committed to elevating personally and professionally every individual that joins the team.

Always one to embrace opportunities for personal growth, Jason further serves the transportation and logistics community as Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA), the acting voice of transportation intermediaries to shippers, carriers, government officials and international organizations.

Jason was honored with the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2014. He currently serves on the Entrepreneur Of The Year® Utah Region Alumni Executive Board. In 2016, Jason was selected as the Weber State Young Alumnus of the Year. He also serves as a member of the Weber State Executive Board of the Center for Sales Excellence, and the College of Engineering, Applied Science & Technology.

‘Work hard, play hard’ is Jason’s mantra. He balances his intense pursuit of continuous professional improvement with matched intensity for ‘fun’ competitions of any type (especially those that involve a motorized vehicle). But, that doesn’t apply only to the way he conducts himself at the office. Outside of the office he’s passionately dedicated to the happiness and well being of his family of ten. And play hard together they do – whether dirt biking, wake boarding or engaging in rousing badminton matches in the family yard. Unless you enjoy being covered in layers of mud and swamp water, don’t get in a UTV with this guy.

A seasoned logistics professional, Todd’s experience dates back to 2007 when he entered the industry as a logistics manager for InterChez Logistics Systems.

Todd’s a hockey player through and through. Hockey isn’t a sport that can be played well by hesitant people. Those who stick with the game are generally pretty sharp - a trait that Todd defines. The disposition necessary to make decisions on the ice quickly and bring his team a league championship is the same approach he applies to business. Always a catalyst for positive change, Todd’s adaptability and calm demeanor has enabled him to lead many successful endeavors for his customers.

What people really think: Visionary, empowering, focused, authentic, disciplined
Favorite quote: “Some people want it to happen, some people wish it would happen, others make it happen.” – Michael Jordan

Shaun’s career in the transportation industry began in 2005 when he joined C.R. England as the Weekend Fleet Manager. In 2007, he joined EL as Director of Container Operations. He moved to Portland, OR in 2012 to oversee the integration of an England Logistics acquisition. After much success in Portland, he relocated back to Salt Lake City to lead our FTL brokerage. Today as VP of Brokerage Services, Shaun tirelessly leads all EL brokerage services, including FTL, LTL, temp-controlled and parcel divisions. He also leads our Agent Division, which includes over 300 agents and staff.

Shaun’s competitive spirit runs deep. From road biking to lawn games to his always colorful socks, he unwaveringly gives it his all. His approach to his responsibilities at EL is no different.

Ryan Lavigne

VP, England Carrier Services (ECS)

Ryan Lavigne

What people really think: Focused, consistent, enthusiastic, sincere, loyal

Ryan has served as Vice President of ECS, a division of England Logistics, since August of 2015. He joined EL in 2010 as Director of ECS. Ryan's background in finance and treasury management has equipped him with an understanding of the importance of company cash flow, along with a plethora of accounting jokes. During his tenure at England Logistics, Ryan has made great strides within the ECS division by building a high-powered team that has created jobs, career advancement, and personal development opportunities.

Ryan is quietly plotting to take over the world (as pertains to carrier services anyway). His laser-focus, unassuming persona and mysterious ways are surely a sign. He’s also an avid outdoorsman who looks for every excuse to embark (and take others) on a new adventure. Therefore, his success leading ECS only makes sense. Always loyal to those he serves, Ryan tenaciously looks for new ways to grow and improve the services offered to carriers through ECS. He’s a force to be reckoned with – don’t let the smile fool you.

Justin Olsen

VP, Legal & Risk Management

Justin Olsen

What people really think: Mitigator, detailed, caring, affable
Favorite quote: “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Justin joined EL in June 2015 as Vice President of Legal & Risk Management. Prior to accepting his position with England Logistics, Justin was in private legal practice for over 20 years and was a founding member of the Salt Lake City-based law firm of Olsen, Skoubye & Nielson, LLC. From 1991-1994, Justin was in-house legal counsel for two large trucking companies. Throughout his career, Justin has primarily represented brokers, intermediaries and carriers in a variety of matters.

We’re not the only ones impressed with his accomplishments. His extensive experience has led him to serve in many capacities within industry associations. He is a former Vice-Chair of the Transportation Lawyers Association’s (TLA) Logistics and E-Commerce Committee and previously served on TLA’s Executive Committee. He has also served as a member of Transportation Intermediary Association’s (TIA) Carrier Selection Framework Committee, TIA’s Fraud Task Force, TIA’s Legal Committee, TIA’s Contracts Committee and TIA’s Education Committee. Justin is also a member of the Conference of Freight Counsel. Whew. That’s a lot of committees. He has also been named by Utah Business Magazine as one of Utah’s Legal Elite.

If you were to ask Justin where he’d rather spend his time, in the courtroom or in the mountains, you may not get a straight answer. He’s truly in his element when he’s arguing a case before a judge, ensuring our customers and contracted carriers are safe and risk free, and protecting our company from undue harm. Ever the loyal caretaker, Justin’s attention to detail and work ethic are unmatched. But, when the opportunity arises, he loves to make his way to the mountains to enjoy the clarity and peace they provide. However, he is known to get into verbal disputes with wildlife from time to time.

Justin Smith

VP, Finance & Administration

Justin Smith

What people really think: Analyzer, efficient, rational, fun
Favorite quote: “The grass is always greener on the other side because you are so busy watching other people’s grass that you forget to water your own dang grass.” – Author unknown (maybe it was me)

Promoted to VP of Finance & Administration in 2016, Justin’s rise through the ranks is the perfect example of an EL success story. He joined EL in 2009 as a financial analyst and proceeded to climb the ranks to his current position through tenacity and hard work. Level-headed and analytical, Justin has been instrumental in ensuring our strategic initiatives and economic forecasting are in line to ensure optimal outcomes.

Justin’s claim to EL fame isn’t just his passion for finance and the analysis of all things that can be analyzed. He’s also the most enthusiastic dodgeball competitor in the company. Whether executing a flawless weekly financial report or his annual dodgeball dance, he’s living proof that fun and numbers can coexist harmoniously.
