Where It All Started
After graduating from Boston University, Jason Colacchio began his career as an electrical engineer at Raytheon Missile Systems. With five years as an engineer under his belt, Colacchio decided to bring his talent for mathematical analytics to the family business, Adcco.
His time at Adcco began in the role of Executive Vice President, where he worked under the leadership of his father and Adcco founder, Anthony Colacchio. In the year 2000, his father passed down the position of President to Jason, where he has since remained. Over the course of the last nineteen years, Jason’s leadership has helped to grow Adcco and the Spinning Wheels Express divisions exponentially. This coming June, he will be celebrating 25 years with the company.
Serving as President

On top of his exceptional analytical skills, the other expertise that Colacchio brings to the table each day includes his excellent listening, common sense, and his knack for database design.
“I love solving my customer’s transportation puzzles, and developing tools and reports to identify their opportunities,” said Colacchio.
Throughout his career as the President of Adcco, the thing that makes him the proudest is seeing the success and development of his employees. During this next year, Colacchio hopes to continue growing his education and communication skills, as well as growing the company intelligently.
