AED Names Modern Group President/CEO Farrell to Board

Paul Farrell, president CEO of Modern Group, was named to the board of directors of the Associated Equipment Distributors, taking effect in January.

Farrell joins the leadership of this equipment trade association as the nation begins to take on major issues of job creation and infrastructure reinvestment. The AED board will host a series of meetings in Washington D.C., including with leaders of Congress, to advocate for policies that will benefit the industry and its employees.

“I am deeply honored to be selected for the board of AED,” Farrell said. “I look forward to working with my peers in the construction industry to meet the challenges of rebuilding America’s infrastructure.”

“We are very pleased that Paul Farrell agreed to join the AED board. Paul’s vast experience and his leadership skills will help our association maintain its position as the leader in the equipment distribution industry,” stated Paul McGuire, AED president and CEO. “Based on the comments out of Washington, D.C., 2017 looks to be a busy year for our association. We are glad to have Paul on board as we expand our reach in government affairs, ramp up our training offerings and rebuild our Foundation.”

Modern Group distributes construction and arborist equipment in the mid-Atlantic including Hyundai loaders and excavators, Bandit chippers and stump grinders as well as Elliot and Manitex cranes.
