EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Accuride Corp. has elevated board member Robin Kendrick to president and CEO, effective June 1.
Mr. Kendrick joined the Accuride board of directors in March 2018 as an independent director and will continue as a member of the board as part of his new role.
He comes to wheel producer Accuride from BorgWarner Inc., where most recently he was president and general manager of that firm's Turbo Systems business after serving as president and general manager of BorgWarner's Transmission Systems business.
"It is an exciting time to be a part of the Accuride story as we continue to grow the company into a global leader in wheel and wheel‐end solutions to better serve the needs of our diverse customer base. I have been privileged to work with the Accuride team for the past year as a member of the board of directors and look forward to working more closely with this talented team in the coming years," Mr. Kendrick said.
Jason Luo, who has been interim president and CEO since January, also is a senior adviser to Crestview Partners, the majority owner of Accuride. He will take on the role of chairman of Accuride's board of directors, replacing Crestview Co‐Founder Thomas S. Murphy Jr., who will remain a member of the board.
