Rob Wilson

Rob Wilson, former VP of fleet services for the Canadian rental company, is now chief operating officer - a newly created role for the company. Since joining Stephenson’s in 2003, Wilson has progressed within the organization and leveraged his analytical skills to maximize the impact the company’s fleet and expand its specialty divisions including fencing, scaffolding and heating products.

Guy Manuel, President and CEO said, “This change will enable me to focus more of my attention on strategic growth opportunities outside of the day-to-day activities as we pull forward our plan to double the company once again. This structure is a move that continues to amalgamate the role of both sales and operations into a cohesive team enabling quicker decision-making at the field level.”

After 65 years of servicing contractors in Canada, Stephenson’s formed a new executive structure aimed at accelerating market share gains they have experienced since announcing a new ownership structure in late 2017, the company said. After completing their management buyout, equipped with a strong financial backing and an unparalleled brand, Stephenson’s has continued to re-invest into fleet, locations, team members and technology in order to outpace the market in some of the busiest markets in North America, they added.
