PITTSBURGH, PA and ATLANTA, GA — The Linc Service Contractor Network has announced two organizational changes to strengthen the alignment between the 103 independently-owned franchises of The Linc Corporation and the 12 company-owned mechanical service contractors of Linc Service Holdings.

Scott Giacobbe, formerly a vice president of Linc Service Holdings and vice president and general manager of one of the company-owned businesses, has been named president and CEO of The Linc Corporation. Chuck Davidson, president and CEO of Linc Service Holdings, has been named to the board of directors of The Linc Corporation.

"These announcements are part of a strategy to bring The Linc Corporation and the Linc Service Holdings companies closer in alignment, benefiting from cross-fertilization of ideas and best-in-class business practices," said Giacobbe. "By sharing best practices between our two organizations, and investing together, we will strengthen our competitive advantage."

Davidson, a 24-year veteran of the mechanical service industry, said that technology and training would be a major joint initiative over the coming year. "We have been developing exciting new technologies for training and for supporting our end customers; these will be major initiatives for our strengthened partnership."

Giacobbe will be based in a new Linc Corporation office near the Atlanta, GA, headquarters of Linc Service Holdings. This will supplement the current Pittsburgh, PA, operation.
