US online construction equipment rental specialist BigRentz has appointed industry veteran Franklin McDonald (pictured) as vice president of operations.

Mr McDonald has extensive experience in operations, sales and management, including more than 30 years with Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation.

BigRentz has developed an online database that connects more than 7000 rental locations across the USA, so customers can always find the items they need, anywhere in the nation.

Dallas Imbimbo, co-founder and CEO of the company, said it is building a world-class, high performance management team.

“The addition of Frank is further validation that we are shaping the future of this industry,” he commented.

“We are attracting top talent because these industry leaders recognise the unsurpassable value of our proprietary tools and methods of delivering a phenomenal customer experience.”

Mr McDonald said: “I view BigRentz as the same type of company as Apple, Google, Airbnb and Uber,” he stated.

“Not only have they created new technologies that are changing the landscape of the industry, but they also have an incredible management team, which I am proud to join.”
