Don Ahern, President and CEO of Las Vegas-based Ahern Rentals has announced plans to appoint a global senior executive management team, which will focus on corporate growth.
Led by Don Ahern, and son Evan Ahern, the global senior executive team will develop and implement strategies to steer the Ahern family of companies during this period of continued growth and increasing diversification of the customer offering.
The executive team will work with all companies within the Ahern Group, including Ahern Rentals, Xtreme Manufacturing, Snorkel Manufacturing, Ahern IT, Ahern Australia, Ahern Japan, Ahern Deutschland, Ahern Canada, Snorkel China, Diamond A Equipment, Xtreme Financial Services, Equipment Parts Plus, DFA Properties, AX Transportation, Supergrip West tires, and Rhino Turf equipment.
Don Ahern said, “The dynamic growth in our product development and our global distribution means that it is now imperative that I form a core team of industry experts to oversee our rapidly growing business, which includes manufacturing, distribution, sales, rentals, and global customer support.”
“The team that I am appointing brings a wealth of industry knowledge and strong business strategy experience to the table, and they will be instrumental in driving our future success.”
Don Ahern is the owner of Xtreme Manufacturing, who produce 16 models of rough terrain telehandlers, ranging from 5,900 lbs. capacity to the industry’s largest which can lift up to 70,000 lbs. In October 2013, Xtreme Manufacturing acquired the majority shareholding in Snorkel, a leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms. Both of these product lines, along with Ahern Rentals and many related products and services have enabled the Ahern family of companies to become one of the fastest growing businesses within the construction-related industry.
The senior executive team will include a new appointment to the business, alongside senior level executives from within the Ahern Group. Members of the team will be announced in the near future.
