Mobile Mini Appoints Erik Olsson President & CEO

Mobile Mini, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: MINI) today announced that Erik Olsson has been named President and Chief Executive Officer. He is also joining the Company’s Board of Directors, restoring the Board to eight members.

Most recently, Olsson, 50, was President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of RSC Holdings Inc. from 2006 until the company’s acquisition by United Rentals, Inc. in April 2012.

“Erik Olsson is a tremendous addition to Mobile Mini. His proven track record in the equipment rental industry, strong global management experience and disciplined focus on operational excellence are aligned with our strategic goals,” stated Michael Watts, Board Chairman of Mobile Mini. “We are very pleased to welcome him and look forward to his leadership as we position the business for long-term success.”

During Olsson’s tenure as CEO, RSC became a premier provider of rental equipment in North America, servicing the industrial and non-residential construction markets. Over the five years prior to its acquisition in 2012, the company averaged double digit revenue growth, delivered EBITDA margins in the mid-to-high 40s and generated strong free cash flow resulting in more than $1 billion in debt reduction. Olsson also led RSC’s 2007 IPO and successful sale in 2012 creating significant gains in shareholder value. Previously, Olsson served as RSC’s COO and CFO.

“I am honored to join Mobile Mini and its employees to serve the company, shareholders and customers in this new role,” said Olsson. “Mobile Mini is a world class organization with a solid foundation for future growth. This is a testament to a great business model and dedicated high caliber employees. I look forward to working with the team to realize the key objectives of future growth and enhanced shareholder value.”

Olsson began his career at Atlas Copco Group, where he held several senior financial management positions in Sweden, Brazil and the United States, including Chief Financial Officer for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation from 1998 to 2000. He holds a degree in Business Administration and Economics from the University of Gothenburg.
