McDougall named President of Skyjack
By Lindsey Anderson19 September 2019
Ken McDougall has come back on board as Skyjack’s President as Brad Boehler has accepted a position with Skyjack’s parent company Linamar. The change is effective immediately. No word has yet been given as to what Boehler’s new position is.
”Brad played an integral role in setting Skyjack up for the success and growth that they’ve experienced over the past few years and [we’re] grateful to him for his leadership,” the company said in a statement.
”McDougall comes with in-depth knowledge of Skyjack’s corporate values, the industry, and their customers, making him the ideal candidate to head the industry leader.”
In 2009, McDougall was reassigned to Linamar’s Mexican powertrain business.
Boehler’s history at Skyjack dates back to 2003, when he joined the company as a product safety manager. From there he progressively held a variety of strategic positions – both within the company to outside organisations, such as IPAF, where he is currently President. The Federation said it could not yet confirm for certain that Boehler would stay on as IPAF president, although it believed that he would.
Boehler has been elected to the Association of Equipment Manufacturers’ CE sector board and the Serious Labs’ board as well as has having been chairman of the Scaffold & Access Industry Association’s access committee and the ANSI A92.6 committee.
