Linamar Corp has appointed ex-A-Plant and Loxam Access executive Steve Shaughnessy as president of Skyjack Inc, replacing Ken McDougall who is now running Linamar's Powertrain business in Mexico.

Mr Shaughnessy, who is a native of Boston, US, most recently ran the UK access rentals subsidiary of French rental company Loxam, but he has a 30 year career in the US and UK rental business, including periods with A-Plant in the UK and Shaughnessy Crane in the US as well as NES Rentals, where he was a vice president and chief operating officer. He is currently a board member and deputy president of the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF).

Linamar president and chief operating officer Jim Jarrell said; "Steve Shaughnessy has unparalleled experience of working in the aerial lift industry at a senior level in both North America and Europe. We believe that this appointment will offer significant benefits both to the organization and to our customers who have come to depend upon Skyjack as synonymous with quality and innovation in the aerial lift market."

Linamar chief executive officer Linda Hasenfratz added, "Steve is a proven executive who delivers results with a great track record for business growth, exactly what we need for today's opportunistic global market."
