Delta Rigging & Tools has hired Tom Hudgins as vice president of sales and marketing. Hudgins will rely on his more than 25 years of experience in the wire rope, lifting, and rigging industry to direct the sales efforts for Delta Rigging & Tools.

 

A native of Danbury, Texas, but raised in Oklahoma, Hudgins graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in management. After college, he spent many years in the oil business, including stints domestically and internationally with both Conoco and Cooper Manufacturing.  

 

In the mid 1980s, Hudgins entered the rigging and lifting industry. His first nine years in the industry were spent in sales management with an industry leading manufacturer of blocks and chain fittings. In 1993, he became a senior product specialist with the Crosby Group, focusing on the implementation of new products. In 1999, he assumed the position of southwest regional manager, and in 2008 was promoted to the VP of sales for the Crosby Group, where he remained until joining Delta.  

 

Hudgins will be based in the company's Pearland, Texas, headquarters.
