Husqvarna Construction Products has named Jeff Lackie to the position of Director of Stone Sales - Diamant Boart Division. Lackie has over 29 years of experience in the construction equipment industry, and 12 of those years have been with Husqvarna. He began as a District Manager and most recently served as OEM Sales Manager, working with Husqvarna’s diamond tool facility in China, Husqvarna-Jikai Diamond Tools.

Lackie’s industry and management experience will enable him to grow the stone business and will be an invaluable asset to the team.

“My recent appointment to Director of the Stone Division is a very exciting opportunity for me to manage a business unit that has been very successful in providing top-quality products and services to the stone processing and fabrication markets,” Lackie said. “I consider myself very fortunate to have had a varying career within Husqvarna that has allowed me to grow my sphere of contacts around the world and keep me professionally challenged, curious and excited.

Lackie replaces Ian Avent who is returning to England at the end of this year and worked in the U.S. for seven years as the Vice President of Diamant Boart USA.

“Ian has been monumental to the success of Diamant Boart and will be greatly missed by the United States team,” reads a statement from Husqvarna. “Please join Husqvarna Construction Products in thanking Ian for his years of dedication and in congratulating Jeff on his new appointment.”
