Vice President of Automation
Bill Lackey brings more than two decades of engineering experience to Motion Solutions. During his six years at the company, he has managed nearly all aspects of the organization’s motion-control business. In particular, he has led the applications/electrical engineering team, and the California sales teams.
Prior to joining Motion Solutions, Bill served as controls sales manager at Danaher Motion in the Kollmorgen Division. This experience with Danaher added to Bill’s engineering and sales expertise and gave him deep familiarity with the same Kollmorgen equipment that Motion Solutions distributes today. He previously served as a field applications engineer for Danaher. Before that, he spent nine years working for the Parker Hannifin Compumotor Division, rising from applications engineer to marketing training coordinator, to product planning manager and systems engineering manager. The last two positions focused on new product development, from identifying customer needs to building a product-development strategy to new product rollout.
Away from work, Bill competes in Ironman triathlons, training alongside his wife, also a triathlete. He holds a BSEE from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
