Ann Adelman grew up in the city of Chicago in the Beverly community where she attended elementary school and high school. Following high school, Ann attended Western Illinois University and completed a degree in Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at the College of DuPage. She returned to the College of DuPage in 2012 to obtain an additional degree in Health Informatics.
Ann’s career for 20 years was in health care where she worked at one of the top healthcare institutions in Chicago working in health informatics and clinical documentation. Ann also held a full career in transportation/logistics at Roadco Transportation Services, Inc. at the same time.
INTRODUCTION TO TRANSPORTATION
Ann met her husband, Bob Adelman through close mutual friends in the southside community. They got married a few years later and raised three sons. From the day Ann met Bob, she was introduced to the transportation/logistics industry since he had started a trucking firm before they met. As the company grew along with their family, she became involved with a lot of the expansion of the business. In 2020 Roadco was forced to close the doors after 42 years of operation due to the pandemic. Ann played a large role in the wind-down operations of the closure alongside her son, Brian Adelman.

INVOLVEMENT AT METRO
Ann began working at Metro Logistics, Inc. within the last month. Since her employment at Metro, she’s developed and implemented all Human Resource roles for the company. Ann has also assisted with billing and collections. Ann has been a great addition to the company as she brings in a new set of eyes and plenty of experience. The Metro team is thrilled to have another member!
In Ann’s free time, she enjoys cycling, kayaking, cross-country skiing, and time at the lake. The Adelman family is also known to rescue a dog or two!
