“As part of our strategy to Maximize Growth, one of the major actions for the sales organization was to restructure the LGH Sales Regions. As part of that restructuring, we were needing to fill three open Regional Rental Manager positions to start our new fiscal year. Through a thorough internal interview process over the past few weeks, I am pleased to announce the promotion of the following LGH employees:
Chuck Wright to Regional Rental Manager – North Central
Chuck started with LGH back in 2009. He spent the first year in a new, remote territory and in 2010, his efforts warranted putting a warehouse in Minnesota. He became a territory manager in 2016 and immediately hired Mark Daubert and Mike Mitchell. Chuck has managed that Territory since then under the guidance of Curt Ward. He’s had the opportunity to work with a variety of people in this industry, both customers and co-workers. He feels very fortunate to have gained the experience and knowledge in his TM role, as well as all of the relationships he has fostered over the years.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in 2003 from Saint Mary’s University in Winona, MN, where he studied Social Science and Criminal Justice. His goal was to become a therapist in the juvenile correctional arena, but luckily for LGH, that didn’t pan out.
Family is very important to Chuck and he has an amazing wife of thirteen years, Abby, and two young children, Emmett and Amelia. They also have a dog named Maisy. They enjoy going out on the lakes of Minnesota and traveling the country as a family. The Wright’s also enjoy other aspects of nature, including camping, fishing and hiking. Both his kids are explorers. He’s passionate about coaching the kids in sports, fishing and hunting. Chuck also spends his free time as a member of a bass fishing league and competes in a variety of tournaments throughout the year.
Jason Rios to Regional Rental Manager – North East
Jason started his career right out of high school as an Infantry Squad Leader and Platoon Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, eventually transferring over to Marine Corps Recruiting Command. There he served in a variety of roles including District Sales Manager and Regional Sales/Training Manager. He has been stationed in various locations throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. While in those roles, he was formally certified in Sales Coaching, Sales Training Management, and Need Satisfaction Selling Process. After 14 years, Jason transitioned out of active military service to work in a variety of construction sales roles to include 2 years as National Sales Manager for Brimar Inc. in New Jersey.
In addition to his military training, Jason worked towards his degree from William Paterson University in Business Management after graduating from Bergen Community College with an associate degree in management.
In his spare time, he actively trains and competes in both Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He has won a few local and national level tournaments over the years, and he greatly enjoys the competition and challenges of getting on the mat. He also enjoys hunting, traditional black powder rifle shooting, NCAA Wrestling, and NY Rangers hockey. Most importantly, he loves spending time with his wife Erin, their five children Jazmin, Alex, Katelyn, Abby, and Ava, as well as their three grandchildren Izaiah, Jackson, and Madeline.
Aaron Orsak to Regional Rental Manager – South Central
Aaron has spent the last 18+ years in the rigging industry through a variety of roles, including inside and outside sales, sales management, and operations management. His career in the rigging industry started at Bishop Lifting in 2005 and I spent 7+ years with them. He started as inside sales, went to outside sales, then to branch management in the Florida panhandle. When the company was sold in 2011, he was moved to Louisiana and spent a year there.
At that time, his daughter was born in 2013 and they moved back to Houston to be around family. He spent the next 2 years with Certex in sales and operations management. In 2015, he got the opportunity to move into manufacturing with Straightpoint. With a territory that started in the Gulf Coast region (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama), shortly turned to become all of the Southeast United States and Mexico. Through the Crosby acquisition of SP, Aaron became the Business Development Manager for the Western United States/Canada, Mexico, and South America. With 7 reps in the US, 5 reps in Canada, and 6 in Latin America, Straightpoint managed to be the best performing product line in The Crosby Group in 2020. For his last role at StraightPoint, Aaron assembled and managed the Tech Solutions team before he joined LGH this year.
Aaron earned his bachelor’s degree with a major in Psychology and a minor in Organizational Leadership. He has been married for 19 years and they have one daughter who will be 10 in May. Aaron spends most of his time with his family and enjoys barbecuing, being involved in his local community through the church, and working on projects around the house. Seeing others around him succeed both personally and vocationally drives him.
Please join us in congratulating Chuck, Jason, and Aaron on their new roles within LGH North America!”
