Hi I am Lorie Henry I am an Executive Assistant for BLC. I handle Orientation and Settlements for drivers. My boyfriend and I love to go to Nascar races. I have two daughters and 3 grandsons.
Happily married to my wife (Sherrie) of 20 years with 2 daughters (Heidi & Paisley) and 1 (Jessica) from a previous marriage. I have been lucky enough to have coached football and other sports, earned my degree and have been in education (wife still is.) My experiences have enabled me to have a great network of friends and to become a diversified person and problem solver. Growing up in transportation I've been a traditional owner operator pulling oversized/specialized/van and reefers for my family business and others while always learning the ins and outs of the industry. As a leader, I know that teamwork from every aspect of an organization is what leads to everyone being successful in all parts of life. My hobbies include Purdue University, sports, cooking, spending time with my family, smoking foods, and the Indianapolis Colts. With a positive outlook, teaching and coaching experience I know we can help others become successful transportation business men and women.
She has over 25 years In accounting/booking profession. She is a proud mom of a son who just became a local firefighter and she loves to cook and volunteer in her spare time. My goals to live by are: “Everything has beauty but not everyone can see. Remember to always be yourself. Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open. If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.”

Prior to the transportation industry, Brent was in the dairy business, and is no stranger to hard work. BLC Transportation came to fruition in 2006 with only 5 trucks. BLC joined in a partnership with Prime Inc. in March of 2007. Prime Inc has a power only group called the Advanced Fleet, and through the partnership with Prime the company has grown to 100 trucks. Brent takes pride in treating employees and drivers like family, and continues to call drivers by name and not a number. When Brent is not in the office he can often be found in a deer blind in the woods, but truly enjoys his family and time at the lake.
