PASCO, Wash. – RDO Equipment Co. announced Darrell Olson as general manager of the Pasco and Sunnyside locations. Effective immediately, Olson is leading both store’s operations, including strategic direction, resource management, and working with all departments to ensure customer satisfaction. He is also responsible to uphold the core values, vision, and mission of RDO Equipment Co.
A 17-year veteran of RDO Equipment Co., Olson most recently served as the general manager of stores in Salinas and Watsonville, Calif. for the past three years. He began his career as a service technician in Pasco and, throughout the years, has held various roles including field service technician, service advisor, service manager, and regional aftermarket manager.
In addition to being closer to family and the opportunity to meet new customers, Olson says he’s most looking forward to working with longtime customers and team members again, at both the Pasco and Sunnyside stores.
“It has been great to see so many familiar faces, both customers and people I worked with for years at these stores,” he said. “Every day, I’m seeing people I haven’t in years and that has been a nice welcome back.”
“Darrell has a passion for this industry, our customers, and our team members,” Ian Carey, vice president of the northwest agriculture region of RDO Equipment Co. said. “This, combined with his years of experience and knowledge, will help lead our teams as we look to grow our business and the way we support our customers.”
