Our Leadership Team
Randy started with DIS in 1984, as a Sales Representative. Living in the Midwest, he’d visited 11 states to sell the DIS system – at a time when very few dealerships had anything like it. Like most of the leadership at DIS, Randy had served in many different roles – until the company’s CEO and founder, Bob Brim, who was also Randy’s mentor, asked him to assume the role of President in 2008. After overseeing the company for over seven years, Randy replaced Brim as the General Manager following his retirement.
Without a doubt, Randy’s greatest joy in life is his family. When not working for DIS, he devotes his spare time to family activities. He also occasionally finds time to golf, hike, boat and read.

Her 24 years of experience, having started with NDS in 1993, has given her insight into the Lift Truck and Construction dealership business. Deb is committed to offering the best Customer Service and Products to the DIS customers.
When not working, she enjoys the beauty of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and everything else it has to offer.

For the last several years, he has been the Director of Sales, overseeing all the functions of DIS’ support team.
Outside of DIS, Bruce loves the outdoors. He especially enjoys playing tennis and golf, hitting the trails with his backpack, mountain biking and fly fishing.
