In his new role, Redfern will report directly to Torbjorn Redaelli, president and general manager of Atlas Copco CMT USA.

Since 2007, Redfern has served as product manager for Atlas Copco’s Surface Drilling Equipment (SDE) division.

He will have overall administrative and managerial responsibility for the rental assets of our business going forward.”
