HOUSTON, TX — TNT Crane & Rigging LLC (TNT), an open-shop crane services platform, announces that its Board of Directors has appointed Mark Irion as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Irion succeeds Mike Appling, who has served as TNT's CEO since 2007.

"He brings extensive industry knowledge and deep financial acumen to the company. Having served on our board for nearly three years, he already has a strong understanding of TNT's business, strategy, culture, and opportunities."

Earlier in his career, he was a Finance Executive for a computer component distribution company and a Senior Auditor for Deloitte & Touche LLP.
