Jonesboro, Ga.-based LTI has appointed Barbara Casey Lane as its new president and chairman of the board of directors. Casey Lane succeeds longtime employee Ben Casey, who left the company to pursue other endeavors.

The appointment is a homecoming for Casey Lane, who spent the beginning of her career at the manufacturer, working alongside leaders in the first and second generations from 1980 to 1989. She returned to the company in 2013 to serve as COO, overseeing the operational side of the business. Outside of LTI, she has worked for other companies in product development, marketing, operational systems and leadership development.

“I am excited to lead our efforts to drive growth and efficiency as well as enhance our core capabilities to better support our customers and dealers,” says Casey Lane in a press release. “Stepping into this role really feels like coming home for me. I see exciting things ahead for LTI. We have a tremendous momentum in the industry, and I’m truly thrilled to have come full circle as we continue to strengthen our core values and accelerate our growth.”

Casey Lane’s appointment marks the first time a woman has helmed the company and has allowed LTI to seek national certification as a Woman Business Enterprise through the Woman Business Enterprise National Council. The certification enables contractors to identify, quantify and report the extent to which they utilize women-owned and controlled businesses as suppliers.

Founded in 1947, third-generation, family-owned LTI manufactures and designs modular and custom serving counters, fabrication and food-serving technologies.
