H&E has announced the return of industry veteran David Hobbs to the company as executive vice president. In his role, Hobbs has managerial responsibilities for the company’s existing operations at all branch locations.
Hobbs returns to H&E after 15 years of holding top management and executive roles with the nation’s largest rental equipment company. His previous employment with H&E included the titles of branch manager and director of salesforce and training. Over his 25-year industry career, Hobbs learned the business from every angle and advanced through the ranks, also holding roles as an inside and outside sales representative, district sales manager, district manager, vice president, regional vice president, and senior regional vice president. He is also a proud Army veteran who served in combat.
“We are very fortunate to welcome David back. David was part of a team that was instrumental in helping launch H&E into the rental business in the late ’90s,” says CEO Brad Barber. “Having David work alongside our team of seasoned executives again today fully aligns with our current growth plans. His breadth of experience will certainly propel us forward as we execute our strategic plan and grow our rental business through warm starts and expansion.”
