Canadian aerial lift manufacturer Skyjack has a new president. Shortly following the unexpected departure of previous president Steve Shaughnessy, the company announced that Ken Myers will serve as the new president. Skyjack hasn’t released an official statement regarding the departure, and perhaps even more unexpected, Shaughnessy is still serving as the president of the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF).
The IPAF doesn’t seem any the wiser themselves, releasing the following statement:
"The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) confirms that Steve Shaughnessy has agreed to continue his term of office as IPAF President despite his changed professional situation. The changes and implications were reviewed at a teleconference of the IPAF Board held on 18 October 2010. The Board was keen that Steve Shaughnessy should continue as IPAF President and it was agreed that he will carry out these duties until the matter can be reviewed at the next scheduled meeting of the IPAF Council."
Regardless of the unexpected shakeup, many are looking forward to the leadership of Myers, who is graduating to the role from acting as the group president of Linamar’s powertrain division.
“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 Operating Officer Jim Jarrell said.
