NES Rentals elects board chairman

NES Rentals has named its president and chief executive officer, Andrew Studdert, to the additional post of chairman of the company’s board of directors. John Neafsey, the company’s previous chairman, said Studdert’s election to chairman of the board is a logical step for the company. “Since joining NES Rentals last year, Andy has proven his leadership and driven improvements by every important measure,” he said. Neafsey will now serve as the board’s lead director.
