February’s featured client is Xtra21 Express Trucking, a full service flatbed transportation company known for its innovation, reliability, and strong commitment to quality.
Seven years ago in his hometown of Dallas, Braylon Lester founded Xtra 21 Express Trucking LLC, a full service flatbed transportation company known for its innovation, reliability, and strong commitment to quality. Armed with 15 years of experience in trucking and a loan from PeopleFund to purchase equipment, Braylon quickly grew Xtra 21 Express Trucking into a premier leader in its industry. This year, it was named one of the 100 fastest-growing inner city firms in the United States and will be featured in Fortune Magazine this spring. In addition, Braylon was recently a Quest for Success Awardee from the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce.
PeopleFund provided Braylon with an SBA Microloan of $25,000, and recently PeopleFund re-invested to fuel more Xtra21 growth with an SBA Community Advantage loan of an additional $100,000. Braylon was also featured as one of our speakers at the PeopleSpark Community Kickoff Event.
Under the leadership of Braylon, the company has maintained a steadfast commitment to community service and charitable organizations across the greater Fort Worth/Dallas. For more than five years, the company has sponsored “Team Courtney” in the National Down Syndrome Society Buddy Walk in honor of Braylon’s brother.
