Don Kenny, CEO of Loxam Powered Access Division, is to retire on 31 December 2020.
Kenny joined the former Lavendon Group in 2011 as CEO before it was acquired by Loxam in 2017.
During Kenny’s tenure he led the integration of Lavendon Group into Loxam Group, UK Platforms into Nationwide Platforms, and the integration of Nacanco and Nove into Loxam Access in Italy.
This was said by Loxam to have strengthened Loxam Powered Access Division’s position as a specialist provider of powered access solutions across Europe and the Middle East.
Kenny also pushed for the digitalisation of internal processes and customer systems.
He will be replaced by Paul Rankin, who was appointed Managing Director of Nationwide Platforms in October 2020. Rankin will also become a member of the Loxam Group Executive Committee.
Rankin was previously Managing Director of Rapid Access, part of the Loxam Powered Access Division, operating in the Middle East.
Kenny said, “I am proud to have been part of such a great organisation and to have worked with some amazing people. I am confident, under Paul’s leadership, the organisation will continue to flourish.”
Gerard Deprez, President and CEO of Loxam, said, “I wish Don all the best for his retirement, and personally thank him for leading the development and growth of the Loxam Powered Access Division across Europe.”
He added, “Paul is a natural successor with previous experience of operating in the Middle East and detailed knowledge of the powered access industry. Paul is strongly positioned to drive continuity across our business.”
