  • Rossella Scalone

    I am empathetic, energetic and optimistic. Double like a magnolia, an entrepreneur and a mother, the choice to create MAGNOLIA MOVING SRL was an excellent compromise between my two souls.

    Born and raised in Apulia, I then moved to Rome to study Oriental languages. After graduation, I became a mother and started working in real estate and the hospitality industry before falling in love with the Moving Industry. I worked as a European Traffic Manager in a large company where I learned the ropes of the trade.

    In 2012, I founded Magnolia Moving, a relocation company with the name of a flower, a feminine touch in a historically male-dominated industry. My secret to success is the passion.

  • Angels Gallardo

    Angels Gallardo worked as a journalist specializing in culture and politics for about five years before joining her mother’s company, Inter S&R Spain, in 2004. Now she is CEO and has played an active role in IAM serving on the IAM-YP Management Board and the Alan F. Wohlstetter Scholarship Fund Board of Directors.

    Angels is currently transitioning to assuming the CEO title (and responsibilities) from her mother, which pushes her to get involved with aspects of the company with which she is less familiar. She recognizes her need for formal training in some aspects of the business, but at the same time, she needs to stay remain fully engaged in leading the company during the current situation.

    Angels intends to continue her education in the years to come while she works into her expanded responsibilities, as well as staying involved with industry associations such as IAM and Euromovers, where she is currently a board member for a second term. The AFW Scholarship award will go a long way toward helping her achieve all of her goals at the same time.

Roughly 95% of the Company’s revenue source is DOD, giving her a working knowledge of business from both the TSP and Agent perspectives, making her an objective voice for industry.

    Jeanette currently serves as the General Manager of Cannon moving & Storage is passionate about “Interest Based Practices” and believes decisions in the Program should be about the Service Member’s best interest.
