Partner Spotlight


Magni-logo-wMagni Americas, Inc., is selected as the CGSC Foundation Corporate Partner for November 2018.

“Magni Americas was one of our big sponsors for this year’s Celebration of International Friendship,” said Foundation Presidend/CEO Doug Tystad. “Flo Rothbrust, a former member of our board of trustees, is the CEO and we can’t thank him enough for keeping the Foundation on his radar even as busy as he is at Magni.”

Tystad added that Rothbrust has been a consistent supporter of Foundation programs during his time as a trustee as well as now in his new position at Magni which he took on in March 2018. He said because Rothbrust is a retired Army officer and an alumnus of the CGSC Class of 1988, he has an inherent understanding of the Foundation’s mission and the significance of programs like the annual Celebration of International Friendship which welcomes international officers to the Kansas City region.

Magni Americas Inc., is a distributor of rotating and fixed boom handling equipment in the U.S. with its parent company based in Italy. Telescoping and rotating forklifts, boat lifts and related attachments are just some of the products they offer. For more information, visit www.magnith.com.

The CGSC Foundation is proud to spotlight Col. (Ret.) Florian Rothbrust and his company Magni Americas for their outstanding support of the Foundation and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.
