Indialantic, Fla. – (September 28, 2019) – Lonski and Associates LLC announce its plans to exhibit at the 2019 edition of AIMExpo presented by Nationwide, North America’s largest Motorcycle and Powersports Tradeshow and Lifestyle event. Taking place in Ohio’s Greater Columbus Convention Center, AIMExpo is dedicated to bringing together industry, media, dealers and consumers in a single arena.
Lonski and Associates invites AIMExpo attendees to visit their 20’ x 10’ tradeshow area themed as “Lonski’s Lounge.” The lounge concept is designed to provide a fun and relaxed environment for industry professionals to gather for informal discussions and networking. Lonski Lounge is located at Booth #1441 where the agency will showcase their industry staffing agency with new branding, new collateral and a new website.
“AIMExpo is a great opportunity for the entire industry to come together, and we’re excited about the first time Lonski Lounge concept we have planned for this year’s event,” said Henry Lonski, President of Lonski and Associates LLC. “As we celebrate our agency’s 12th anniversary in North America and the expansion of our recruiter team, we look forward to meeting with clients, candidates, media and other industry stakeholders.”
“Offering a platform to connect dealers, OEMs, media and consumers has been one of the core objectives of AIMExpo presented by Nationwide,” said Cinnamon Kernes, Vice President & General Manager, MIC Events. “As we work to bring the industry together, it’s more important than ever that the motorcycle and powersports industry are able to take advantage of the ‘one time, one place’ benefit that being in Columbus will offer.
Indialantic, Fla. – (August 28, 2019) – Lonski and Associates, LLC announces the addition of dealership process and performance expert, Forrest B. Flinn, to the marine, motorcycle and powersports staffing agency.
With twenty-four years of experience in the powersports industry, Flinn brings a unique skill set to Lonski and associates. His industry experience, knowledge and multiple professional certifications in the fields of human resources and social media will benefit the entire agency.
Flinn’s diverse industry experience includes working for Lightspeed as an implementation and training consultant and being a general/operations manager for a large metropolitan multiline dealership with P&L responsibility. And more recently, Forrest had a ten-year tenure with PMC, a privately-owned industry consultancy that specializes in helping dealers become better through outsourced accounting, human resources, dealership operations, and Lightspeed training.
“Forrest brings unique talents and a valuable mix of experience to the Lonski Recruiting Team,” said Henry Lonski, Founder and President of Lonski and Associates. “He is a professional accountant and holds multiple degrees in business which includes an MBA from Texas A&M University. We’re excited to have Forrest onboard to help us move the industry forward and make a positive impact for our clients.”
“One of the biggest problems I see in the industry is having the “right” person in the “right” job at the right time,” said Flinn. “Dealerships are constantly struggling to staff their dealerships with the “A-Team” and usually end up with the “B” and “C” players instead.”
“Having a strong background in the field of human resources, I believe I can help dealers “up their game” with their staffing and recruiting needs.”
Flinn’s Specialties include Dealership Operations and Process, F&I Compliance, Dealer/Lender Relations, and training and development of staff. Powersports companies looking to hire managers, powersports professionals or other talent looking to transition into the industry may contact Forrest Flinn at 210-201-3155 or Forrest@HenryLonski.com.

Indialantic, FL – (June 27, 2019) – Lonski and Associates LLC, celebrating 12 years as a leading recruitment firm specializing in staffing for the motorcycle, powersports and marine industries, launched the company’s new website as part of their continuous improvement process to better serve both clients and candidates. The new site is located at www.HenryLonski.com. The new website is the centerpiece for Lonski and Associates’ 2019 marketing strategy that showcases the recruiting giant in a sporty and engaging new presentation while positioning their recruiters as industry-leading staffing specialists.
“We are thrilled with the development of our new website,” said Henry Lonski, Founder and President of Lonski and Associates. “We finally have the appropriate level of online presence that reflects who we are and our unequaled expertise in the industries we serve.”
While www.HenryLonski.com is an important tool for client relations, Lonski and Associates is leveraging the new site to spur even more engagement with candidates looking for choice jobs in the motorcycle, marine, powersports, outdoor recreation and RV industries.
“We are known in the industries we serve as the go-to recruiters for quality candidates,” said Rollin E. Karoll, Senior PowerSports Recruiter with Lonski and Associates. “We are always looking for ways to “up our game” for the top tier clients that demand the high level of talent we provide them.”
Marketing drivers to the new website include bold new print and digital advertising, tradeshow participation, publicity opportunities and recently augmented social communication channels including LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Information on the site vividly communicates the company’s expertise in delivering customized precision recruiting, staffing and consulting resources to any size company, at any stage of development, and at any location worldwide.
One primary marketing driver is Lonski and Associates’ new Advanced Career Page on LinkedIn. Linkedin is the world’s largest professional network where Lonski candidates, clients and potential clients are able to gain a glimpse into the staffing agency’s culture and hear directly from their recruiters as well as other candidate and client testimonials. A testimonial tied to a LinkedIn profile has more credibility than a quote on a website where a viewer has to research manually to evaluate its legitimacy. Furthermore, the Advanced Career Page provides insights into the agency’s key points of difference.
“We never rest on our laurels,” explains Lonski. “Visit the ‘Lonski Lounge,’ booth 1441, at AIMExpo and learn why we’re number one. No one else even comes close.”
