CRANE MARTIN BUYS ROBSTAN GROUP, EXCITING FUTURE AHEAD
Effective June 1, 2018, Crane Martin LLC, owned by Jennifer Crane and DeAnna Martin, purchased Robstan Group, Inc., from Ken Bowman. 
 
Robstan Group, Inc. (RGI), a full-service association management firm, has managed the Scaffold & Access Industry Association (SAIA) for the past 10 years. Martin has worked with SAIA throughout most of her 7-year tenure with RGI, making her a familiar face to SAIA. She will remain as the SAIA Liaison to the A11 and A92 Committees as well as Associate Director. Crane has worked for Robstan Group the past 16 years, during which time she served as the company’s Vice President in addition to filling various roles in the company, including SWR Institute’s Membership Coordinator, Vice President, and Executive Vice President.
 
“These are exciting times for our new company and for our clients. DeAnna and I are grateful that Ken recognized in us the ability to take the company he built into the future. Our clients can expect the stability and experience of an established company with the enthusiasm and energy of a new one,” Crane said. “Together with our team, DeAnna and I will continue offering volunteers the resources they need to achieve their organization’s mission and goals, and we will challenge ourselves to continually bring innovative ideas and solutions to the table.” Crane Martin LLC is headquartered in Kansas City at the office where Robstan Group resided.
