Recommended Posts


The board of directors along with the board of trustees of The Will-Burt Company, which designs, manufactures and sells mobile elevation solutions, introduces Richard J. Lewin as the company’s chief executive officer, president, and member of the board of directors, effective January 1, 2020. Lewin succeeds retiring CEO Jeffry O. Evans, who has led the company since 2002.


The lead director of the board of directors, Gary Clark, comments on the appointment: “Given the increasing importance of international sales to The Will-Burt Company, the board conducted an extensive search for a leader that was highly competent in all functional areas and had substantial international sales and marketing experience. We were very fortunate to have found that person within our company. Richard Lewin has demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities during his time as president and the board is very confident that we have the right person to be the chief executive officer and lead our 100-year-old, employee-owned company for many years.”


“I am honored by the opportunity to lead this dynamic organization,” Lewin said. “We have expanded our reach dramatically over the past several years in both the worldwide markets we serve and the products we offer. We, as employee-owners of The Will-Burt Company, have created a positive culture that I am proud to be a part of and I am looking forward to leading this company through its second century.”


Lewin has spent 10 years at Will-Burt in a variety of roles. Initially hired to be the commercial director at Will-Burt EU in the United Kingdom, Richard also served as sales director, vice president and general manager, and as the senior vice president responsible for all worldwide businesses. Most recently he has held the titles of COO and president.
