Special Event Rentals is pleased to announce that effective, April 1, 2011, Andrew Ussher has joined our firm as Vice-President. Andrew will work closely with Gary Evans, our President, providing top level vision, direction and oversight for our firm as we continue to expand into one of Southern Ontario’s leading event rental companies.
Andrew’s involvement in the event rental industry in Southern Ontario began over twenty years ago, and he brings extensive knowledge and experience to his new position here at Special Event Rentals. His input will be harnessed immediately to help dramatically enhance Special Event Rental’s already-excellent reputation in the event rental field.
For over 19 years, Andrew owned and managed one of the largest tent rental firms in Canada, and is well respected throughout the industry. He is a Certified Management Accountant by profession, and brings a unique combination of financial management expertise and experience to our senior management team.
His specific responsibilities here at Special Event Rentals will include:
- Establishing and overseeing strong financial management, controllership, capital spending, and strategic planning processes and controls.
- Working with existing management to develop continual enhancements to our operations management practices, marketing efforts, and customer service capabilities.
- Developing and implementing growth strategies to expand our market presence in the party rental, sporting event, and trade show marketplaces.
- Providing leadership and expertise in continuing to grow our capabilities in the tent rental market.
Gary Evans and Andrew have worked closely together over the years on numerous large-scale projects including the Canadian Open Golf Tournament, the IAAF World Track & Field Championships, and the Organization of American States convention. Gary is very excited to have Andrew join the Special Event Rentals team, and is confident that his expertise and experience will contribute immediately to the company’s continued growth and expansion.
We have worked very hard over the years here at Special Event Rentals to earn the trust and confidence of our customers – and we place tremendous value on the excellent reputation we have worked so diligently to develop. With Andrew’s added efforts, we anticipate that this reputation will only continue to grow and expand, and we are very excited moving into the 2011 rental season with our newly-expanded senior management team in place.
Please join us in welcoming Andrew to his new responsibilities.
