The future of the heavy lifting industry looks bright. Armed with a strong work ethic, initiative, curiosity, and a commitment to training and safety, the 2022 winners of our Top 10 Under 40 contest are setting the bar for young professionals across the industry.

And it wasn’t easy paring down all of your entries to just 10 – there are so many excellent people out there under the age of 40 in our industry.

Whether they work in leadership, operations, maintenance, sales or support, these crane and hoist employees are highly regarded by their colleagues, clients and peers. Kelly Truman wraps all our Top 10 Under 40 list.


Sales Account Manager, Falcon Equipment

Surrey, B.C.

“Kelly has been with Falcon since 2004; he started in the parts department and has slowly worked his way up through several roles,” says his manager, Joel Gibson. “He is now one of the most knowledgeable account managers on the sales team.”

Truman works with municipalities and road maintenance contractors across British Columbia providing custom solutions to suit their needs, and Gibson says that his technical knowledge on lifting equipment is unmatched.

“Kelly is also heavily involved in the Canadian Association of Fleet Supervisors and the BC Road Builders Association, where he gets to immerse himself in the industries he serves,” says Gibson.

Kelly sells and services to some of the largest fleets in Canada with expertise and professionalism on a daily basis, as well services owner operators as if they were family. “There has not yet been a lifting solution Kelly could not solve.”

You can see all 10 of our Top 10 in the November/December issue of Crane & Hoist magazine.
