DALLAS - Lennox International Inc. (LII) has appointed Michael J. Blatz as president and chief operating officer of its Service Experts business segment, effective July 1. Blatz succeeds Scott Boxer, who has elected to retire effective June 30.

“I’d like to thank Scott for his many outstanding contributions to LII over the last 12 years, including his leadership of Service Experts since 2003, and wish him a healthy and happy retirement,” said Todd Bluedorn, LII chief executive officer. “Michael’s strong operational focus will help us build upon our solid foundation for growth in Service Experts.”

Blatz most recently served as executive vice president of operations, successfully driving LII’s material savings, factory productivity, and operations excellence initiatives, while also improving safety performance, said the company. Prior to joining LII in 2007, Blatz was vice president and general manager for Tyler Refrigeration, a division of Carrier Corp.
