Oshkosh Truck Names Paylor as President of JLG Industries
Oshkosh Truck Corporation announced that Craig E. Paylor was named president of JLG Industries, Inc., its access equipment subsidiary and newest acquisition, effective immediately.
Most recently, Paylor served as senior vice president of marketing for JLG, with global responsibility for business development, sales, marketing, customer service and aftermarket. Since joining JLG in 1978 as a district manager, Paylor has held increasingly responsible, customer-focused roles primarily in the areas of sales, marketing and business development. In 1996, Paylor became an officer of JLG and was appointed senior vice president of sales and market development in 1999. During his nearly 30 years with JLG, the company has grown from annual revenues of $40 million to $2.3 billion in fiscal 2006. Paylor holds a bachelor's degree from Penn State University and a master's degree from Harvard Business School.
Paylor succeeds Charlie Szews, Oshkosh's executive vice president and chief financial officer. Szews had been acting president since Oshkosh's acquisition of JLG in December 2006 and now returns full time to his corporate responsibilities.
