Preston Hire has announced changes to their business structure and personnel as the company continues to grow and expand.
– David Serg to take on broader responsibilities and strategic management of the Preston Group – Andrew Lambert appointed Preston Hire General Manager (Australia)
David Serg, Group General Manager, will take on a broader role overseeing the Preston Group of Companies both locally and internationally whilst stepping away from the day to day operations of Preston Hire (Australia). Serg has been a member of the Preston Hire leadership team for 11 years and has played an integral role in the expansion of the Australian & New Zealand businesses, marketing and brand evolution. This experience and knowledge will now be utilised to further grow the Preston brand internationally.
Serg commented “The Preston Group is now a multi-faceted international group of businesses with operations spanning Australia, New Zealand, North America and Europe. We continue to add new businesses, equipment and people and we see further exciting opportunities ahead to expand our business and international footprint. I am excited to work closely with Markus Preston on our future steps forward.”
Accompanying this change, Andrew Lambert has been appointed in the newly created role of General Manager (Australia), responsible for the daily management and growth of the Australian hire business and personnel nationally. Lambert brings with him vast experience in the hire industry having been employed with Skyreach as NSW State Manager and Kennards Hire as General Manager (Lift & Shift division). Lambert will commence with the business on 17th June 2019.
“I am thrilled to be joining a growing business with a well-established management team in place who are keenly focused on improving the value of the business for all stakeholders and the customers it serves. I look forward to contributing to the future growth and success of Preston Hire (Australia)” said Lambert.
Markus Preston, Group Managing Director is confident in the new allocation of responsibilities and the exciting new era for the Preston Group of Companies. “We welcome Andrew to the Preston Hire family and look forward to seeing him lead the incredible team working for us at our Australian offices. It is a big role with big responsibilities. Preston Hire (Australia) has experienced many iterations of growth and success over the years and is our largest operation within the group. I am confident Andrew will lead with passion and the Preston Hire spirit we are known for.”
“I gladly welcome the experience and vision David Serg has demonstrated during his long tenure with Preston Hire” said Preston. “I am eager to work closely with him at a group level as we strive for further progress for our international organisation. To maintain the health and welfare of our rapidly growing business, I recognised the need for greater resources to support me in our efforts. David has ‘yellow in his veins’ and is the wingman I need on this journey!”
The Preston Group of Companies consists of Preston Hire (Australia), Preston Hire (New Zealand), Preston Rentals (North America) and Preston Rentals (Europe), and SuperService, its Heavy Equipment Specialist mechanical service business, now operating in Australia and New Zealand.
