We’re more than a scaffold rental company. Our executive leadership team is proud to support a growing, national company of scaffold experts. As part of APi Construction and the APi Group, we know scaffold equipment, we know the construction industry, and we’re backed by experts in every field. We’re here to help make your project a success.

Scaffold Division Manager
Russ Byers oversees all branches under APi Construction’s Scaffold Division and manages the day-to-day operations of National Scaffold. Russ draws on a diverse experience in the scaffold, automotive and financial industries to set the overall strategy and direction for the Scaffold Division. He also handles pricing, financials, personnel management, and more. Motivated every day by the people around him, Russ is driven to help his team leverage their strengths, develop skills and grow successful careers. Russ also enjoys solving complex scaffold challenges with innovative solutions, like National Scaffold’s success at the Seattle Arena, which required hanging nearly 2 million pounds of scaffold from the ceiling. Russ holds an MBA from the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management, and he and his wife enjoy cruising around in his classic street rod.
Senior Project Manager
Tanner Vik manages the day-to-day operations of National Scaffold and takes care of clients with large industrial projects and smaller commercial work alike. As General manager, Tanner is responsible for providing estimates, building and tracking budgets and managing projects. A ‘numbers guy’ with a bachelor's degree in Operations and Supply Chain Management from the University of St. Thomas, Tanner is also responsible for company financials, income statements and other management duties. Tanner splits his time between Minneapolis, MN and Portland, OR, where he oversees ongoing construction projects for a major technology company. In his free time, Tanner enjoys hunting and spending time on the lake with family and friends.
Senior Scaffold Superintendent
Pistol Holliday has over 25 years of experience in the scaffold industry. He’s been a journeyman carpenter since 1996, and being on big jobs around the country is his favorite thing in the world. As Senior Scaffold Superintendent, Pistol is on the job to support site superintendents. He ensures scaffold equipment is available where it’s needed, and that his crews have the resources and training they need to operate safely and successfully. He enjoys putting crews together, pairing experienced carpenters with ambitious apprentices to help develop the next generation of scaffolders. Pistol has completed OSHA 10 and OSHA 30, and is proud to have his son represent the 3rd generation of Hollidays in the scaffold trade. Pistol and his wife have seven children and 5 (almost 6!) grandchildren.
