U.S. Markets Hires Great Lakes Regional Account Manager | Construction News

US Markets Inc. (USM), a wholesale lifting equipment rental, sales, and reconditioning specialist headquartered in Elmhurst, Ill., has hired Alan Hunt as its Great Lakes Region Account Manager.

Based in Nashville, Tenn., Hunt is responsible for new and existing customer relationships in Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin, as well as Ontario, Canada.

During more than 10 years of experience as a territory manager for several national rental chains, Hunt has sold both new and used equipment. Most recently, he ranked as the No. 3 national sales representative for Equipment Depot.

“Customer-service oriented, Alan is adept at assessing customer needs and delivering solutions that make sense for the client,” said Chad Cochrane, general manager. Hunt is responsible for offering customers repair and reconditioning services, used equipment, and re-rental solutions.

Hunt has a broad knowledge of Genie, Skyjack, and JLG products, and is familiar with many industrial and rough-terrain forklifts. USM believes it has the world's largest fleet of Genie SX-180s, as well as a variety of Genie, JLG, and Skyjack telescopic boom lifts, articulating boom lifts, scissor lifts, and telescopic handlers.

In addition to re-rental, USM offers full- and partial-service reconditioning. “We pride ourselves in the ability to customize our programs to fit any customer’s need or budget. Alan recognizes that reconditioning is a personal process that must meet the specific needs of the client,” said Cochrane.
