Employee Spotlight : John Sefcik

Collaborations and growth are continuously occurring at Hugg&Hall.  With this growth, we have acquired phenomenal employees that now call Hugg&Hall home. One of our newest employees, John Sefcik, made the transition to Hugg&Hall with the redistribution of Scott Equipment Companies Toyota Material Handling brand. His combined service marks 24 years! 


Sefcik works as a Sales Representative in Central Louisiana. In his 24 years of service, he has been in several different positions including Outside Rental Sales and Construction Equipment Sales. His tenure in the industry began soon after his graduation from Louisiana College with a BS in Business Administration.

There is great commitment and pride that goes into being a Sales Representative. John says the job, “keeps him on the move interacting with customers in all kinds of industries.” He wants customers to reach out to him for anything. Even if he cannot help, he will get the customer to someone who can help.

John’s understanding of the local industry comes from his upbringing in Alexandria. Today he, his wife and daughter live just across the river in Pineville, LA. In his free time, Sefcik enjoys mountain biking and spending time with his family.

Over the years John has realized he cannot go without his morning coffee. When asked what he wants customers of Hugg&Hall to know he said, “We are a great team of people and good at getting things done!”

We would like to thank John Sefcik for his tenure and dedication to hard work. Without his attention to detail, customers would not receive the exemplary service Hugg&Hall is known for.
