Michael Burton, former General Manager of Engineering, has now been appointed Director of Engineering, Product Quality, & Product Safety. Selack explains, “It’s time for me to pass the torch to Michael, a very gifted, talented engineer.”
“Michael represents our next generation of leaders and has demonstrated his talent, his resilience, and capabilities as a contributor and as a leader over the past 16 years he has spent at LBX.
