NationsRent Emerges Reorganized

September 28, 2010

Rental-company consolidator NationsRent emerged from Chapter 11 protection in early June, in the hands of a group of private investors with strong ties to the equipment market. Industry veteran Jeff Putman (with tenure at Fluor and its equipment subsidiary, AMECO) is NationsRent's CEO. Other directors of the company include recently retired Multiquip CEO Irving Levine; Bryan Rich, co-founder of the investment group; and a veteran rental executive who sold his company to NationsRent in 1998.
