Cannon Companies
Director of resources

Brian facilitates the purchase and sales of all new and used equipment for Cannon’s 235-unit fleet.

“Brian works closely with 15 project managers to provide them with their everyday equipment needs,” says Tom Sheard, general manager. “His leadership goes beyond the equipment by strategically organizing our yard so crews get out in the morning and [back] in the afternoons in the most efficient way possible.”

Certifications: Class A CDL, NCCCO certified crane operator, OSHA 30 certified, NFPA 70E arc flash and arc blast protection.

Professional accomplishments: Implemented an innovative solution utilizing Excel pivot tables and formulas to track our fleet of small equipment trailers, pickups, and heavy iron. We maintain a strict equipment life-span based off of year, mileage, hours, or a combination of both. This not only maximizes our depreciation versus value at time of sale/trade in, but over time, it reduces the cost of repairs and down time.

Off the clock: Restoring and driving classic Mini Coopers.
