NationsRent last week announced the promotion of Charles Snyder to the position of executive vice president and chief operating officer. Snyder will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company including the six operating regions, fleet and asset management, product support, and transportation.
Snyder joined NationsRent in June 2003 as executive vice president, fleet and asset management. Before joining NationsRent, Snyder worked for American Equipment Co., now known as AMECO, in positions of increasing responsibility, most recently as president. Snyder led AMECO’s global expansion from its initial U.S. base to Asia and Latin America, doubling the company’s revenues in four years and repositioning the company along three separate and unique business lines, while implementing a successful global branding strategy.
“Charles brings a successful track record and over 30 years of industry experience to this position,” said NationsRent president and CEO Jeff Putman. “He has made significant advancements in our fleet and asset management function and has served the new NationsRent as a key member of our leadership team since June 2003.”
Snyder is widely respected in the rental and distribution industries, often serving as speaker or panelist at industry events.
Based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., NationsRent is No. 6 on the RER 100.
