Chris Venezia is responsible for day-to-day lift equipment rentals and sales at Trico Lift’s King of Prussia, Pa., facility.
Chris Carmolingo, chief operating officer of Trico Lift, a privately owned aerial lift and rough terrain forklift provider headquartered in New Jersey, recently announced the appointments of two new Pennsylvania managers. Chris Venezia of West Chester, Pa., was named branch manager of the company’s King of Prussia operation and Chuck Turner of Wenonah, N.J., has become the company’s Marcus Hook branch manager.
According to Carmolingo, Turner and Venezia are now responsible for all day-to-day lift equipment rentals and sales conducted by the two Pennsylvania branches as well as the company’s complete parts, repair and inspection customer services provided by those locations. Both managers report to Carmolingo.
Venezia has both sales and service experience in the equipment rental industry. Prior to joining Trico Lift in 2008, Venezia advanced in several positions in the access equipment market beginning as a service technician and eventually becoming a sales manager overseeing lift rentals and sales in multiple counties in southeastern Pennsylvania for a large supplier. For the last four years he has served as Trico Lift’s sales and equipment specialist of the greater Philadelphia area.
“Chris’s ability to relate to people of all levels and his keen insight to our business and our industry qualify him as a Trico Lift leader,” Carmolingo said. “He understands the demands of the market and he is relentless about serving his customers.”
Turner has more than six years in the construction equipment rental business having advanced in positions at Godwin Pumps, headquartered in Bridgeport, N.J. While working for the Godwin organization, Turner held lead positions in sales, operations and repair services. Prior to that, he held outside and inside sales roles for Joseph H. Stomel & Sons, in Berlin, N.J., for more than 13 years. He joined Trico Lift last year.
“Chuck’s quick adaptability to our company and our customer demands has set him apart,” Carmolingo added. “His ability to manage multi-faceted transactions so they remain seamless made him a good choice for such an important location to our eastern region.”
