LBX Company has announced the appointment of Eric Sauvage as its next president and CEO, succeeding Robert Harvell who will retire at the end of the year.
Harvell will remain a senior advisor and board member after his retirement.
Sauvage joined LBX—the makers of Link-Belt hydraulic excavators, scrap/material handlers, demolition equipment and forestry equipment—in 2008 as vice president and CFO.
Armed with a master’s degree in international management from the University of Dallas, Sauvage has more than 24 years of experience in many financial and operations leadership positions.
Harvell said in a prepared statement that Sauvage’s “broad business background in both the international and domestic markets, extensive experience in the construction industry, and proven work record and accomplishments within LBX makes him well suited to lead the organization.”
Sauvage is actively involved as a board member in several community organizations including the World Trade Center of Kentucky Board, the Business Education Network Board and the American Heart Association Board.
