LAKE FOREST, Ill. (Oct. 29, 2014) — Tenneco Inc. has made a change in its executive team involving the company's Clean Air business.
Josep Fornos, executive vice president of Tenneco's Ride Performance division, has assumed the position of executive vice president for the company's Clean Air unit, replacing Neal Yanos, who is leaving Tenneco, the company said. The change is effective immediately.
A replacement to lead Ride Performance has not yet been named, Lake Forest-based Tenneco said. In the interim, the Ride Performance businesses will report directly to Hari Nair, Tenneco's chief operating officer.
In his new role, Mr. Fornos will lead Clean Air “as it continues to build on its success in the light vehicle and commercial truck and off-highway markets while also focusing on a broad range of large engine regulatory-driven opportunities,” according to the company.
In early 2013, Tenneco organized its businesses along product lines to support the company's plans for revenue and earnings growth and its longer-term strategic vision. Since then, according to the company, “the changes are driving greater integration across regions, and progress on specific strategies designed to create growth and profit improvement opportunities unique to the Clean Air and Ride Performance businesses.”
Tenneco designs, manufactures and markets clean air and ride performance products and systems for automotive, commercial truck and off-highway original equipment markets and the aftermarket under the principal brand names Monroe, Walker, XNOx and CleviteElastomer.
