Staff Member since: January 2005
A former Army brat, as well as a onetime director of sales and operations at a local moving company, Chuck White is uniquely qualified to offer guidance and perspective from the viewpoints of both military customers and the industry. These days, he interacts with both IAM members and their government partners, applying his firsthand understanding of both at meetings and workshops. He spends a lot of time traveling for the Association, representing and advocating for its members.
Chuck is a football nut and a rabid fan of the NFL, particularly the Dallas Cowboys. He attended college on a football scholarship and was even named Most Valuable Player in the 1977 Hall of Fame Bowl Game. After an almost-successful effort to join the NFL rosters, he became a high school science teacher and football coach. Years from now, after he retires from IAM, he expects to return to coaching high school football. Until then, of course, there’s plenty for him to do as the industry’s relationship with the military continues to evolve.
Staff Member since: August 2009
Brian Limperopulos has always been drawn to learning about other cultures and different parts of the world. In fact, when he was a young boy, his parents would distract him with maps, knowing he could spend hours counting the number of airports in California (there are a lot!) or finding the quickest way to get from home to grandma’s house. More recently, Brian indulged his passions for history, geography, and politics by studying international affairs in University. During that time, he was fortunate enough to spend a semester in Europe, studying in Brussels and traveling extensively.
After graduating, Brian coordinated shipments for the World Bank account for Security International in Washington, DC. Several years later, he joined IAM, where he now coordinates activities for the IAM-YP group, the International Shippers Association, and the IAM Logistics Network; leads IAM’s efforts in membership protections, including the Receivable Protection Program and the Members Ethics Council; and spearheads IAM’s efforts in standards development.
In his spare time, Brian watches and plays soccer – always supporting the US Men’s National Team and Arsenal F.C. He also continues to bone up on history, which may come in handy if he achieves his secret ambition: being a contestant on the game show Jeopardy!

Julia O’Connor once aspired to be a psychologist working with children and adolescents. Although for a time she tutored gang members in a juvenile detention center, her career path changed when she interned for association while staying with her sister during the summer before her junior year in college. Over the years she honed her membership skills at organizations serving military officers, technical communication professionals, and those involved in training and development. Now she is Director, Membership & Database Management for IAM, and is adept at all tasks that involve managing IAM’s membership database, creating reports based on that data, and communicating the value of membership to members and prospective members.
During college, Julia spent four months studying abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She keeps active through sports and enjoys skiing, long distance running, competing in triathlons, and playing bocce and soccer, as well as discovering new and delicious wines.
Julia loves working at IAM, where she is in touch with people from all over the world. A highlight of her tenure so far was being a part of IAM’s 50th Annual Meeting.

Nicola's life has been a juxtaposition of the local and the international. Raised in a small town in Upstate New York, she and her family spent half of her fourth-grade year instead in a small town in southern Lincolnshire, where her father had grown up. Later, she spent every summer of her teenage years singing music from around the world (from South Africa to the republic of Georgia, Appalachia to Corsica) in village churches around New England. After college, she was thrilled to have the opportunity to travel across Europe for three months with the same organization, and see Corsica, Berlin, and the Alps for herself.
Apart from those three months of travel, Nicola spent two years after college working at an international public health organization, where she particularly enjoyed communicating with field offices around the world, and she is pleased to be once again working at a company with a broad international membership.
She moved to Virginia to pursue graduate studies in Shakespeare and Performance, relocating to the DC area after achieving her MFA. Outside of work, she volunteers at a local cat shelter, sings in a choir, and periodically appears in a variety of theatrical productions.

Member Services Coordinator
Staff Member since: February 2023
Verena has been in the moving industry for over 10 years. Hired straight out of college to help out over the busy summer months, she was told during the interview that she would either "love it or hate it." As it turns out, she loved being part of such a unique and international industry. Having friends all over the world is one her favorite parts.
Verena was born and raised in Germany and still goes back home every summer to visit her family.
After high school she wasn’t quite ready to start her studies yet and joined the au pair program in the U.S. After one year with her host family in the Washington, DC area, she decided to stay and get her Bachelor in Business Administration. Despite her grandma’s continuous efforts to get her to move back to Germany, she ended up living in the U.S. for more than 14 years.
She now lives with her husband and two kids in Antigua, Guatemala, enjoying a slower pace of life, the year-round good weather, and seeing volcanoes erupt daily.
In her free time you’ll find her either reading a good book or planning her next travels.
