Elkhart-based Skyline Corp. has announced the retirements of three members of its board of directors. The company says the board plans to nominate candidates to succeed Jerry Hammes, William Lawson and David Link at its upcoming annual meeting of shareholders.

Skyline says the members' decisions to retire and not stand for re-election to the board "are not a result of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company's operations, policies, or practices." Lawson will retire July 24, while Hammes and Link will continue until the shareholder meeting in late September.

Hammes, Lawson, and Link have served on the board since 1986, 1973, and 1994, respectively. Each currently serves on the board's audit, nominating and corporate governance, and compensation committees.

"On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Company, we thank Jerry, Bill, and Dave for their long and distinguished service on the Board and their dedication to Skyline, its shareholders, employees, and stakeholders, and the Northern Indiana community," said John Firth, chairman of the board. "We salute their tireless service to all of Skyline's constituents over their combined 98 years of service on the Board. Jerry, Bill and Dave have exemplified Skyline's commitment to integrity in all they have done. The Company deeply appreciates the significant contributions Jerry, Bill, and Dave have made to the Company, and we wish them well in their future endeavors."

The company says the board will have the opportunity to appoint a director to fill Lawson's unexpired term.
