Al Randall Inducted into SC Hall of Fame

Dealer Art Newton summed it up nicely:  “Al Randall is such a funny and laid-back guy, it’s easy to forget what a strong leader he is for our industry.”

If any members weren’t aware of Randall’s accomplishments for the association and the MH industry, that was rectified in April.   The popular lender was honored and inducted into the SC Manufactured Housing Hall of Fame, the industry’s highest honor.

Randall served as MHISC Chair, keeping the association strong during an industry downturn.  He has served as association treasurer and as a supplier representative on the MHISC Board.  Randall served multiple times as President of the Pee Dee Chapter and continues as a key supporter and organizer for the Florence-area chapter.

One of Randall’s strongest traits is his willingness to say yes whenever the association needs help. “I don’t know if anybody actually wants to be roasted but when we asked Al to be the ‘honoree’ at our first association roast, he agreed because MHISC needed him to build a good show around,” Newton said.

Whenever the association needs someone who can handle a tricky situation with diplomacy, the MHISC staff calls on Al, according to Executive Director Mark Dillard.

“I can think of several times where we went to Al when there was news to deliver that wasn’t going to make someone happy,” Dillard said. “Al likes to say that he’s not politically correct but the fact is that people believe and trust what he says because of his communication skills and reputation for integrity.”

MHISC is the voice of the manufactured and modular home industries in South Carolina.
