BigRentz has appointed Scott Cannon as president and chief operating officer, responsible for driving the day-to-day operations of the business. Cannon most recently worked as CEO of MNX Global Logistics, a provider of specialized, expedited transportation and logistical services.
During Cannon’s tenure at MNX, the company nearly tripled its revenue, leading to a successful private equity exit. Before becoming CEO, Cannon served in financial roles, including finance controller and chief operating officer. Cannon also worked in a number of executive-level roles at Varus Tehnologies, a wireless telecommunications start-up and at LCC International, now part of Nokia.
Cannon has served on BigRentz’ advisory board since September 2016 and is an advisor to several venture and private equity-backed companies.
“At the end of 2016, we had the opportunity to work closely with Scott as an advisor, and he brought such tremendous perspective and value that the natural next step was to make him an official part of our team,” said BigRentz CEO Dallas Imbimbo. “His knowledge and experience about business operations and finance will be invaluable as we continue to expand into new markets and rental categories.”
BigRentz, a provider of online equipment rental, is headquartered in Irvine, Calif.
