Durante Rentals, fast-growing independent rental company in the New York City area, has hired Damien Rispoli to its sales management team. Rispoli will manage and develop Durante Rentals’ next location, opening in March of 2016.
Rispoli joins Durante Rentals with more than 20 years of industry experience in rentals, sales, training and operational capacities, having worked with major equipment dealerships and manufacturers as operations manager, sales representative and territory manager.
“Damien brings a wealth of industry knowledge and experience to the table,” said Durante Rentals president John Durante. “He is a welcomed addition during this exciting period of rapid growth for the company.”
Rispoli’s business education began as a child growing up in a diverse family business, encompassing hardware, auto parts and repair, lawn-and-garden equipment, contractor and industrial supply, and tool rentals.
“One day as a young boy working the family business, I told my dad I wanted to be the boss,” Rispoli said. “He handed me a broom and told me if I wanted to be the boss, I’d have to learn how to sweep the floor first. This fatherly advice encouraged me to learn all facets of the business, from the bottom up. He instilled in me the significance of superior customer service, which has stuck with me throughout the years.”
Based in Bronx, N.Y., Durante Rentals has four locations in the N.Y. tristate area, serving all five boroughs plus Westchester and Rockland counties, Connecticut and New Jersey.
