Also departed are Jim Woodward, JLG's chief financial officer, and Tom Singer, general counsel. Oshkosh said Craig Paylor, JLG's senior vice president of sales and marketing; Peter Bonafede, senior vice president of manufacturing and supply chain management; and Wayne MacDonald, senior vice president of engineering, will continue with the company.

Robert G. Bohn, Oshkosh's chairman, president and chief executive officer, said; “The integration of JLG is a top priority of the corporation and our appointment of Charlie Szews as JLG's interim president reflects that importance.”

M Szews said; “We have eight operational teams, with members from both Oshkosh and JLG, leading the integration initiative and focused on specific near– and long–term objectives. Planning is well underway and we are pleased with initial progress.”

Bill Lasky joined JLG in December 1999, at which time annual JLG revenues were under $1 billion. Under his leadership, revenues grew to $2.3 billion in fiscal year 2006 and are projected to grow a further 20–25% in the current financial year.
