Jay Roszell, currently president of Volvo Construction Equipment North America, has decided to resign from his position to pursue a long-term ambition of moving to the distribution side of the business. He will assume responsibility for the Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee branches of LB Smith.


Denny Slagle, currently president of LB Smith, will replace Roszell. Slagle has previously served as CFO as well as SVP sales and marketing at Volvo CE North America.


Slagle will be replaced by Bill Cummins, who has spent the last 12 years as president of Mitchell Distributing Co., the Komatsu distributor in the Carolinas.


Two additional appointments also were announced at Volvo CE North America. Lars-Goran Andersson, currently CFO of Region International within Volvo CE, will take up the position as CFO of Volvo CE North America. He will replace Paul Torrington, who will join LB Smith as CFO.


Carl Lockwood, previously project leader for the backhoe loader and currently vice president of Business Development in Volvo CE Compact Equipment, will move to Asheville and join Volvo CE North America as vice president of Strategy and Business Development.


All changes are effective June 2.
