The judges said: “Xavier du Boÿs had a notable 12 months. He continued to lead his business in its strategy of acquisitions and international expansion – including an important move into Italy. He completed the sale of the company to new owners, and moved from his long-time role of CEO to become Chairman of the company. He is one of the rental industry’s most respected leaders.”
Pierre Boels, ERA President, said: “Colin’s engagement with rental went beyond the UK. He was a vice president on ERA’s board during its important early years and his work as ERA’s treasurer helped set standards that are still being followed today. Throughout his career he has been a friendly presence on the scene. As he moves into retirement, the industry will miss his personality as much as it will his experience.”
Awarded to a manufacturer that has made particular efforts to meet the needs of the rental industry in its products and services, as judged by the ERA’s Technical Committee.
Judged by the ERA Sustainability Committee, who said: ”Both companies are at the forefront of developing a genuinely sustainable approach to rental and both deserve wider recognition.”
