CampusBookRentals Hires New COO, Plans Expansion

By Di Lewis

Ogden – CampusBookRentals is getting ready to grow. As the company looks to add another office in Salt Lake City, CBR Board Member Scott Klossner has joined the company as COO. Klossner was previously CFO at

The transition from outdoor retailer to books is a shift in perspective, but in terms of impact for customers, company growth and the quality of people at the company, Klossner says the two companies are alike. He’s looking forward to helping the CampusBookRentals in its next stage of growth.

“To me that’s the real sweet spot in business, moving it from this stage to a half billion in revenue,” says Klossner. “Entrepreneurs love the camaraderie, but in my experience, it pales in comparison to watching this thing grow to such a critical mass that you grow to be a dominant force in the industry.”

Klossner will be instrumental in the company’s future, says CEO Alan Martin, who has expanded CampusBookRentals from an online-only textbook rental company to a technology company that’s now partnering with brick-and-mortar stores.

And balance will be needed as CampusBookRentals grows throughout the next few years. The Ogden-based company is currently shopping for an additional location. While no site has yet been finalized, Martin says the addition of a Salt Lake-area location will create greater ease of access for visitors and make it easier for CampusBookRentals to recruit talent. The company’s current logistics center will continue operations in Ogden.
