United Rentals’ Norty Turner, senior vice president, services and advanced solutions, will kick off the ALH Conference on Oct. 23 with a keynote speech that discusses lessons learned by the rental giant during Covid-19.

“The Covid-19 pandemic brought on unique challenges and unveiled new opportunities to operationalize and focus additional efforts as a team to ensure safe, efficient and flexible solutions,” Turner told ALH. “Safety has always been part of our DNA, but now, more than ever, companies are looking for that added assurance. With some agility, focus and a constant dedication to safety, United Rentals updated the safety playbook to guide the team through the pandemic and keep employees, customers and communities safe and on track.”

United created nine key protocols at the core of its response to Covid-19, and ALH Conference attendees can expect to hear what worked and can be implemented into their own operations. Following Turner’s talk, attendees will have the opportunity for a Q&A session.

Registration is free, and those interested can do so via this link.

Turner, who also serves as IPAF’s president, was named senior vice president, services and advanced solutions, for United Rentals in April 2019. Before joining United, he was CEO of Netherlands-based Riwal, the international rental and sales specialist of mobile elevating work platforms, telehandlers and power generators, March 2012 until October 2018.

Prior to Riwal, Turner had a series of sales and operations roles at Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation beginning in 1995, including serving as VP and general manager for operations for Europe and the Middle East, and also as president for Hertz Equipment in France.

Turner holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master of Science degree in management from North Carolina State University.
