Carmolingo has been with the company for more than 15 years, having managed nearly all areas of the equipment rental, retail sales and leasing functions of the business. He is credited for having established the company’s formal marketing and sales functions.

The new executive vice president is now responsible for all day-to-day operations, safety, marketing, and customer services connected to Trico Lift’s aerial work platform rentals, sales, leasing, parts, training and related programs.
