Accuride Corp. announced that William Lasky, chairman of the company’s board of directors, has decided not to stand for re-election at its annual stockholders meeting on April 24. Lasky will continue to serve as chairman until his current term expires on that date.

“The rest of Accuride’s leadership team and I have appreciated Bill’s deep insight into our company, its businesses and the industry we serve,” says Rick Dauch, Accuride president. “He did an outstanding job leading the company successfully through its restructuring and has been a tremendous resource to us as we developed and began the implementation of our ‘Fix and Grow’ strategy to restore Accuride’s reputation as a dependable supplier to customers and as a reliable, profitable investment for shareholders.”

Lasky was appointed chairman of Accuride’s board in January 2009 and continued in that capacity after Dauch joined Accuride as president and chief executive officer in February 2011.
