Two Men and a Truck Names Brant Hartle as New Chief Financial Officer
Brant Hartle‘s journey to become Two Men and a Truck’s Chief Financial Officer didn’t happen overnight – it happened by chance. Hartle’s new career path is the result of a relationship, birthed over more than a decade ago, with former CEO Brig Sorber. The two learned to trust one another and embrace their similar passions as not only friends, but neighbors.
Hartle developed a unique understanding of the Lansing based moving company. Soon enough, conversations between the two turned into respect, as Hartle found himself building a deep appreciation for how Sorber succeed in making the company what it is today, without sacrificing his moral obligation to do the right thing, whenever possible.
Hartle’s diverse career background, which when paired with his background knowledge of the company, brings forth intriguing potential for the position. Hartle has held positons as an audit manager at Andrews Hooper & Pavlik PLC, the CFO at a multi-state insurance agency specializing in physician malpractice insurance, SCW Agency Group, Inc. and an insurance agency operations consultant for The Doctors Company, helping integrate SCW Agency Group, Inc. into their operations.
Most recently, Hartle’s interests have lead him to becoming a co-founder and CFO of Rentr.com. When taking on this new endeavor, Hartle turned to his longtime friend and former neighbor Sorber for advice on entrepreneurship. In a meeting at Two Men and A Truck’s headquarters, a wealth of advice was shared by Sorber and the company’s current CEO, Jeff Wesley. The meeting went so well, that after more than a year of working to build Rentr, Hartle was contacted by Wesley and offered the option to join the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® team.
Hartle’s work with Rentr was a prime example of his ambition and ability to adapt to new business ventures working on limited resource, something that stood out to Wesley. Hartle ultimately embraced the opportunity and quickly learned, first-hand, just how much potential a small business has as Two Men continues to grow – recently being named the nation’s largest moving franchise.
Hartle looks to use his experiences in business, insurance and finances to continue pushing the brand forward. Hartle’s determination to expand his repertoire and take on new challenges serves as an excellent opportunity to continue developing his own brands, as well.
