LGMG North America Chairman of the Board of Directors Yanyu Shi said, “Eric is the right leader to take our North American business operations to the next level. His extensive access equipment experience and business development skills will help strengthen our distribution partnerships, expand our strategic alliances and solidify our brand in the North American market.”

Shi continued, “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Craig, who without his vision and leadership, the company would not have had the success it has enjoyed. Rusty has played an integral role in the growth of our North American business operations having drawn upon decades of success within the equipment rental industry. We greatly appreciate Rusty’s contribution to our success as well.”

Paylor and Kaylor will continue to consult for the company as the transition proceeds.

Liner said, “I am extremely excited about leading the LGMG North American business operations. We are in the initial stages of development and have a tremendous opportunity to significantly expand our business in the years ahead. I look forward to working alongside our team as we strive to become North America’s access equipment manufacturer of choice.”
