In his new role at the rental management software company, he will work directly with customers to determine their needs and guide solutions within Point of Rental’s portfolio.
Point of Rental CEO Wayne Harris said, “John has an incredible wealth of knowledge about rental processes, business, and the industry as a whole. We’re excited to see the impact he’ll have on the processes that drive Point of Rental.”
Wooten, who has been involved in the rental equipment industry for more than 30 years, said, “I have a passion for continually improving each aspect of a business, and Point of Rental gives me the opportunity to improve efficiency and profitability for not just one, but thousands of rental companies around the world.”
