Newest International Rental Exchange Participant Now Working in the U.S.Tuesday, September 15, 2009
The second of the virtually simultaneous international rental exchanges is now under way, with Michael Hayek working at Eagle Rentals in Seguin, Texas.
Hayek is a branch manager for Kennards Hire P/L in Sydney, Australia, where he oversees two branches. He will be with Eagle Rentals through the end of this week, attend the Texas Rental Association Roundup in San Antonio, Texas, from Sept. 18-20 and then work at Taylor’s Rental Equipment Co. in Fort Worth, Texas, for several weeks. Following that, he will work at Taylor Rental/A&A Tents in Shreveport, La., and attend the American Rental Association (ARA) Leadership Conference in Orlando, Fla., Oct. 16-18.
He joins Todd Daymont as the current exchange participants. Daymont, manager of American Party Rentals in Durham, N.C., is working at Harry the Hirer in Richmond, Victoria, Australia, just outside of Melbourne, through October.
Both Daymont and Hayek will be writing about their experiences for a blog on The Global Rental Alliance Web site, www.globalrentalalliance.com. Starting this week, the blog will be updated regularly.

The ARA Foundation facilitates the program on behalf of The Global Rental Alliance. The Alliance associations include ARA, Canadian Rental Association, DLR of France, European Rental Association, Hire Association Europe, Hire Industry Association of New Zealand, and Hire and Rental Industry Association Ltd.
