National Trench Safety (NTS) has announced three promotions as well as the hiring of an industry veteran as the Houston-based company restructures. NTS specializes in the rental and sales of trench and traffic safety equipment, trench and traffic safety engineering, and OSHA-compliant training classes.
“These are important moves for NTS as we position the company for our next wave of growth expanding our domestic footprint, as well as our international branch network, in 2018,” says Ron Chilton, NTS president.
NTS operates 32 branch locations in the United States and England. It provides a fully integrated national branch network delivering engineered solutions, shoring solutions and customer service. NTS plans to open several additional branch locations in the next year.
Wes Jones 已升任运营支持高级副总裁一职。他将监督业务运营，包括安全，培训，NTS大学和非舰队资产。
“As we’ve expanded our branch network, our organizational needs have evolved,” Chilton says. “As we looked at certain core business processes we had, we realized that our growth had created a need for increased focus on these efforts and Wes was the natural person to lead these initiatives.”
David Beaver has been promoted to a new position, vice president of U.S. operations. Beaver previously served as the mid-Atlantic district manager for NTS, leading growth of key start-up operations within that district.
“We are very excited to be naming David to this new position,” says Chilton. “We feel that David’s background, proven track record and ability to manage a diverse geographical area will provide us the ability to manage our growth while maintaining our reputation for customer service that has defined our market presence.”
随着Beaver的晋升，NTS重组了其地区，同时促进了 Dan Williamson 担任东北地区经理的新职位，该地区拥有多个较新的分支机构。威廉姆森（Williamson）是著名的沟槽安全行业资深人士，之前曾担任NTS芝加哥分公司经理。
“Dan has done a tremendous job leading the growth of our Chicago operation since he joined our team,” says Chilton, adding that Williamson’s strong product knowledge and sales focus will help us drive continued growth.
NTS also announced the addition of Ray Bilby 作为公司的国家和大客户经理。 Bilby是资深的沟槽安全专家，负责发展公司的战略客户计划。
“We are very pleased to add Ray to our management team,” Chilton says. “Our larger customers with operations in multiple states have routinely requested a stronger, more centralized account management platform, and we believe Ray’s background and experience will be an asset to our customer base as we continue to broaden our national account program in the coming years.”
