Durante Rentals announces the hiring of Mitch Garfinkel to a senior sales position with the company. Garfinkel brings almost four decades of construction equipment sales experience to the role, where he will be instrumental in expanding Durante’s new and used sales divisions, as well Durante Rentals’ future stages of expansion.

“Mitch brings his dynamic personality and countless years of experience to the position. We are thrilled to have him on the team as Durante Rentals continues to grow,” says Anthony Durante, Durante Rentals co-founder.

In the early ‘80s, Mitch got his first opportunity in the construction industry as a sales rep for a line of diamond blade products. His career took off soon thereafter and within a couple of years he found success selling skid steers, telehandlers, and a variety of other construction equipment.
Mitch eventually moved to a new position as a manufacturer’s sales representative. Along the way, he introduced cutting-edge sales processes that are still a staple within the industry to this day.

In 1991, he opened his own wholesale, retail, and export equipment company, supplying equipment to customers all over the country. After many successful years in business, a new opportunity presented itself allowing him to build a thriving New Jersey-based equipment dealership from the ground up.

“It is a privilege and honor to be a part of Durante Rentals. I am excited for the opportunity to apply my expertise in all areas of equipment sales and rentals,” says Garfinkel. “I have known Durante Rentals co-founders John and Anthony for 34 years and I am confident Durante Rentals will be the final stop along my career path.”

He will be located in the Flushing, location.
