BigRentz has announced its president and chief operating officer, Scott Cannon, has been named chief executive officer, replacing co-founder Dallas Imbimbo. Imbimbo, who has served as CEO for the past five years, will continue to drive strategic initiatives from a board level and remain as chairman of the board.
“I’ve been searching for an operator like Scott for the last several years,” Imbimbo said. “He has the ideal background to lead BigRentz at this stage of our company’s growth. Scott has a proven playbook to scale the business, and I have great confidence in his ability to take BigRentz to the next level.”
“Dallas and the entire BigRentz team have done an amazing job building BigRentz into a high-growth and innovative company,” said Cannon. “BigRentz has grown from three people sitting around a fold-out desk and whiteboards to a tech-enabled company with close to 100 employees supporting suppliers and customers throughout North America. The company culture Dallas created along the way is second to none, and we are fortunate that he will continue to lead BigRentz as Chairman.”
As Cannon takes over as CEO, he said he aims to build on BigRentz’ technology and leadership, which has given the company an advantage.
He added, “BigRentz is in a enviable position because of how Dallas built the company with great partners, customers and employees; strong culture and systems, and a legacy of year-over-year growth. Over the next five years, we want to build on Dallas’ vision by further simplifying the rental experience and building deeper relationships with our service partners and customers. I foresee international expansion and increasing the variety of construction-related services that benefit both our customers and partners. I appreciate the confidence that Dallas and the BigRentz team have in me to keep BigRentz moving forward through great service, industry leadership and technological innovation."
