Maxim Crane Works LP has promoted Monty Glover Jr. from regional operations manager to vice president of the mid-Atlantic region.
Glover has more than 20 years with Maxim, getting his start on the shop floor in 1996. “He gained experience in every aspect of the operations, including dispatch, branch management, sales, and most recently as regional operations manager based in Charlotte,” said Frank Bardonaro, chief operating officer of Maxim. “His experience in the industrial sector and specialty lifting services will enable Monty to lead our expansion from the Carolinas into Virginia and other surrounding areas.”
Bryan Carlisle, CEO of Maxim, said the company has invested more than $40 million of equipment and resources into the region over the past 12 months, under the leadership and direction of Glover and his team. “As we continue to invest and grow the region, we know that Monty is a proven leader who will ensure our customers and team members that we will have the equipment, services, and safety programs needed to facilitate growth,” he added.
Maxim Crane also has promoted Lance Lotz as the new branch manager of the location in Tampa, Fla. Lotz has nearly 25 years of crane and rigging experience. He started working as an oiler, then crane operator, and continued to work throughout the country as a project manager, branch manager, sales rep, and dispatcher.
Carlisle noted that between the Crane Rental Corp. and Amquip acquisitions and Maxim’s organic growth, the company has added more than $100 million of cranes in Florida over the past 24 months.
“It is exciting to work for a company that is completely focused on growth and customer service,” Lotz said. “We have already expanded our Tampa fleet and equipment offerings and will be relocating into a renovated facility.”
