Tony Fiscelli received his Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from Ohio University. After finishing college, he began his career with Lifting Gear Hire Corporation (LGH) and has since had the opportunity to grow with the company over the past eighteen years. Tony is currently President of LGZH, which is headquartered in Bridgeview, IL, and now has seventeen locations across the United States. The company specializes in the rental of all types of hoisting and rigging equipment, and is steadily expanding across the country. Under Tony’s leadership, LGH currently has over 140 full-time employees.
Beyond his professional pursuits, Tony is also involved in the community, serving as a member of the Young Presidents Organization – Chicagoland Chapter. He is also father to two young daughters and enjoys spending time with his girls and his lovely wife, Jill. Tony played ice hockey in high school and at Ohio University, and now enjoys golfing and hiking in his spare time.
Tony’s life was affected by organ donation when his father needed a liver transplant a few years ago. His father underwent his care at Northwestern Medicine and eventually received a donation from Tony’s sister. Both Tony’s father and sister are both doing fantastic now, and Tony feels that without the help of Northwestern Medicine, he would not have his father in his life today.
Tony has chosen to assist the fundraising efforts of NMTAC for a variety of reasons. “I feel that this is a great way for me to give back and help other people and families that might be experiencing the same issues and concerns that my family faced a few years ago,” Tony has said. Bringing his years of business experience to the table, Tony is a significant part of the NMTAC and is excited by the opportunity to help raise funds for the future of organ transplantation.
