Alex Kouzmanoff

President, Chief Executive Officer

When Alex Kouzmanoff accepted a position as a Summer Intern with Aztec Tents and Events in 1997, he had no idea that it would lead to a career path building what would become one of the most prominent tent manufacturers in the world. In 1998, after graduating from Washington State University with a double emphasis degree in Business Management and Human Resource Management, Kouzmanoff returned to Aztec to work within the growing manufacturing division of the company. There, Kouzmanoff helped expand the sales and marketing side of the business to include new customers and markets both domestically and internationally. In 2009, Kouzmanoff was named Vice President, where he worked with the sales and marketing segment of the business with added focus on core corporate strategies and business development. In January of 2020, Kouzmanoff was named President and Chief Executive Officer. 

Along with his ongoing work at Aztec Tents, Alex has been integral in the success of several leading industry organizations. Kouzmanoff has served on the steering committee for the Tent Rental Division of the Advanced Textiles Association for two terms and recently completed his service to the American Rental Association serving as Associate Member Director on the Board of Directors of the Association. Kouzmanoff has been a speaker at several leading industry trade exhibitions, and has proudly served with several other trade associations including the ARA, ATA (Formerly IFAI), MATRA, and CRA. 

Alex was awarded the American Rental Association’s Special Service Award in 2013. The association aims to recognize a rental industry supplier who has made an outstanding contribution to the industry. Alex’s work within the ARA at the state and national level has been invaluable through presentations, sponsorship and attendance at events.

Outside of his work life, Kouzmanoff loves to spend time outdoors with his family. His passion for tents carries to his personal life where he can be found hiking, camping, and exploring the beauty of our country. 

 

Frame Tents

Frame Tents feature a skeleton of aluminum framework and steel connectors to support the tent top. Although this style of tent is "free-standing" by design, it still must be anchored to resist wind forces. All styles of frame tents have no poles that come to the ground in the interior space of the tent.

Pole Tents

Pole tents rely on tension in the membrane to hold the shape of the tent system. These tents are supported by single or multiple centerpoles in the middle of the tent area and a series of sidepoles around the perimeter of the tent area. The tent is tensioned toward the anchoring locations commonly with a rope or ratchet strap.

Clearspan Structures

Similar to Frame Tents, these types of frame supported structures have no interior posts or columns. The unique attribute that Clearspan Structures hold is their ability to span quite large distances without interior posts and also without external guying. Generally, these structures are built for higher loading applications and larger span sizes.
