Trico Lift Names Carmolingo COO; Paz, Executive Chairman

Trico Lift, Millville, N.J., a full-service aerial work platform provider, has appointed Chris Carmolingo, of Mullica Hill, N.J., to the newly created position of Chief Operating Officer.

“In his new role, Chris will focus on maintaining Trico Lift’s operational and customer-service excellence standards as we expand in Texas, integrate the acquisition of Modern Group’s aerial lift assets, and grow our market share in the Mid-Atlantic region,” said Ken Pustizzi, Trico Lift president and chief executive officer.

Carmolingo, an 18-year veteran of the company, said, “I am excited to take on this new challenge, considering the tremendous market opportunities now available to Trico Lift. I look forward to working with the entire Trico Lift team to maintain the high level of customer service which remains the foundation of Trico Lift’s success.”

In his prior position as Trico Lift’s executive vice president, Carmolingo was instrumental in creating and developing the company’s sales and marketing program, as well many of its operational successes.

In another executive move, Trico Lift has named John M. Paz, former owner of Godwin Pumps, as executive chairman of Trico Lift’s board of directors. Paz will provide operational leadership and counsel, working with Pustizzi, Carmolingo, and the company’s entire management team during this aggressive growth phase.

Paz is credited with having developed Godwin Pumps into one of the leading equipment rental businesses in North America. “As a long-time advocate and supporter of Trico Lift, I’m pleased to be positioned to help guide this company toward the realization of its vision to be the best provider in the industry,” Paz said.
