SAY HELLO TO BRYAN HOOKS!
Bryan works as an Outside Rental Salesperson in our Oklahoma City branch. He likes to begin each day just before sunrise, to make time to deliver “happies” (cookies or donuts) to his clients’ jobsites and research new potential partners. While visiting clients, he may find himself taking measurements and making recommendations to assure each customer has the perfect piece of equipment.
With great pride, Bryan and our rental team work together to provide equipment with competitive pricing & delivery to meet the customers’ needs. This includes thinking strategically to provide innovative solutions when issues arise. When speaking with Bryan he states, “I believe every interaction, transaction, or piece of equipment associated with my name should be of the highest quality. I also take pride in simply doing what I say I will do for my customers, every time.”
Growing up in Newcastle and currently residing in Edmond, Bryan knows the Oklahoma City area well. On the job, he works to make sure each customer is confident that all their rental needs are met, within their requested time frame. “I ensure customers know that we are problem solvers, not just order takers.” Bryan continues, “Repeat business is the lifeline of sustainability, so customers satisfaction with each transaction is of utmost importance.”
In addition to being a customer favorite, Bryan lives a very active life. When asked, he mentions he could not live without Jesus or his children, Eli, Noah & Micah. He enjoys playing golf and attending college football games. After work and on the weekends, you can find Bryan enjoying a game of catch with his youngest son, who is the quarterback of his high school football team. Bryan enjoys grilling for his older sons and their friends and meeting for lunch and church.
When asking about Bryan’s past, he mentions that in his days at the University of Memphis, he was crowned Tush Push King of Memphis; he even has the belt buckle to prove it! While in Memphis, Bryan studied Sales & Marketing while playing college baseball. He even played semi-pro after graduation.
In his time at Hugg & Hall, he has worked hard to make everyone smile. With the world on hold because of COVID, Bryan wanted to bring cheer to not only our customers but to the people of Oklahoma City. He dressed in one of his dad’s famous costumes, the Easter Bunny, and waved to passersby traveling on Interstate 35 from a 40-foot scissor. Helicopters from at least two local news stations covered the story and a reporter interviewed him for the evening news.
Bryan’s favorite thing about working for Hugg & Hall has been the teamwork atmosphere and “never say no” attitude. He says, “We have a competitive yet family-oriented sales and management team that always work collectively to help employees achieve our goals.” Hugg & Hall would like to send a huge thank you to Bryan Hooks for his hard work and positive attitude as an Outside Rental Salesperson.
