Adam Franz, Southeast Regional Sales Manager of Mazzella Companies, was nominated and awarded 2019’s Corporate Top Trainer by Crane Hot Line. The Top Trainer program presents an annual award to trainers in the lifting and rigging industry who excel at using innovative hands-on instruction, encourage peer or corporate accountability, demonstrate training success, and have a strong overall impact on students, the industry, or the environment.

“Trainers, particularly great trainers, are worth their weight in gold. Their ability to engage students and teach vital information that makes workplaces safer and more productive keeps on giving for years after a class is done,” says Crane Hot Line Editor, Mike Larson.

Adam has been with Mazzella Companies for 13 years and has worked his way up through the ranks—starting as a Sales Engineer with Progressive Crane, transitioning to Branch Manager of Mazzella Lifting Technologies in Charlotte, NC and was most recently promoted to Southeast Regional Sales Manager of Mazzella Companies.

Relying on a variety of methods, Adam keeps his classrooms engaged by using real-life examples from the workplace, provides examples of good and bad rigging equipment, and encourages active participation and discussion using candy and other prizes. “After each training session, we survey the attendees and ask for feedback. We consistently hear the same things about Adam as a trainer: He keeps the attention of his classroom by being enthusiastic about the material and by making it interactive; he tailors the content of his training to his audience; and his knowledge and expertise are unparalleled,” says Sam DiMeo, Executive Vice President of Sales, Mazzella Companies.

Adam is active in the lifting and rigging industry—frequently attending industry conferences and events like AWRF and SC&RA. He’s also active with local safety committees including Carolinas AGC (CAGC) and Steel Erectors Association of America (SEAA). “We regularly hear from people with 20-30 years of experience who walk away having learned something new from Adam’s training. Adam is very deserving of this award and we’re thrilled to celebrate this achievement with him,” says DiMeo.
