Frank Bardonaro Steps Down as AmQuip CEO

AmQuip Crane Rental LLC, in Trevose, Pa., announced today that Frank Bardonaro Jr. has stepped down as president and CEO of the company. He will maintain his relationship with AmQuip through a newly-created board position, and he will retain his shareholdings in the company.

Richard Bard, AmQuip’s board chairman (and CEO of Bard Capital Group, an investor in the company), commented that It will be “business as usual at AmQuip,” and “All issues previously directed to Frank Bardonaro will be handled by Al Bove, chief operating officer who joined AmQuip last December.”

Bove is an industry veteran, having been chief operating officer of General Crane’s operations in the Southwest and Western U.S. prior to joining AmQuip. He was also the CEO at Maxim Craneworks at an earlier time in his career.
