Crane rental leader names new Ohio Sales Manager and GM of ALT Sales, and says goodbye to retiring longtime legend

ALL Crane, ALL Family of Companies

A well-deserved retirement is prompting a new round of promotions from within the ALL Family of Companies, which is known for the remarkable stability of its leadership team.

Josh Bacci has been named the new Ohio Sales Manager for ALL Erection & Sales Corp. Bacci’s name is already well known to ALL customers, as he previously served as general manager of ALT Sales Corp., the boom truck arm of ALL. Bacci’s promotion follows the retirement of ALL legend Norm Rados.

Norm Rados started with ALL in 1978, first as an oiler and then as an operator, working primarily on a contract basis with local steel mills. Norm combined years in the seat and exacting lift planning with a natural business sense and an easy-going way of forging relationships. “The career that Norm carved out with ALL speaks for itself,” said Michael L. Liptak, CEO and president of ALL. “He has brought clear vision and a steady hand to his work — work that has helped our company thrive. We wish him well in retirement…”
