LANSING, Mich., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, the nation's largest franchised moving company, has promoted Chief Operating Officer (COO) Randy Shacka to President, a position formerly held by CEO Brig Sorber. The change is effective immediately.
The appointment marks the first time in the history of the company that the title of President has been held by a person outside of the Sorber family. Sorber, one half of the original "two men" of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, will continue to serve as CEO. Brig's brother, Jon Sorber, will continue serving as Executive Vice President, and sister Melanie Bergeron will remain as Chair of the company.
Shacka takes the reins as President during a period of record growth for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK. The company has seen 32 straight months of growth, the past 13 of which have been double digit increases, and it is on track to reach $250 million in sales before the close of the year.
"The growth we're seeing today is, in part, a result of the process improvements and new technologies that Randy has played an integral role in developing," said Brig Sorber. "His experience as a mover and manager at the franchise level provide him unique insight into our system, and he'll continue to push us to adapt new systems that allow us to thrive."
Shacka got his start in 2001 as an intern at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK. During the past decade he has served as Franchise Development Specialist, Director of Operations, Chief Development Officer (CDO) and Chief Operating Officer (COO).
