Kathleen Rowell, Founder & CEO

Kathleen founded American Moving in 2009. In an industry dominated by multi-generational competitors, she introduced innovative approaches to commercial moving operations, including merit-based employee hiring, comprehensive training programs, and leading-edge business processes. American Moving is proud to be a 100% woman-owned, union business and a recognized leader in the Boston-area moving and install market.

In an industry where reputation is everything, Kathleen initially focused American on delivering high quality services to companies of modest size. As American’s resources grew and its capabilities were validated, Kathleen was able to attract increasingly larger companies as clients.

Before launching American Moving, Kathleen held various roles in the healthcare industry, ranging from clinical care to field sales. Subsequently, she launched an office cleaning company, where she obtained valuable insights into the commercial moving industry. Driven by an entrepreneurial mindset, strong organizational skills, and seeing firsthand the area’s booming economy, Kathleen established the vision for American to offer a client-driven experience with meticulous attention to detail.

Throughout her tenure, Kathleen has committed American to addressing major social challenges as part of its core business mission. The company’s charitable initiatives are wide ranging with in-kind donations and active participation with causes such as Juvenile Diabetes, Muscular Dystrophy, and Ovarian Cancer.

Kathleen serves on the Board of Directors of First Literacy Boston which creates life-changing educational opportunities for adults throughout Massachusetts. In addition, she encourages young people to explore vocational careers through participation in mentoring programs.
