JLG names replacement for outgoing chairman



McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - JLG Industries Inc. Thursday has announced a management change.

Current president and chief executive officer William M. Lasky was appointed by the JLG board of directors as chairman of the board, effective in February, the company said in a release.

Current Chairman L. David Black plans to retire, officials said.
