Allison Transmission Elects D. Scott Barbour to BOD

Allison Transmission announced D. Scott Barbour has joined its Board of Directors following a successful election at the 2022 annual meeting of stockholders.

The election of Barbour increases the size of Allison’s Board to 10 members. He will serve on the Board’s Audit and Compensation Committees. His current term will expire at the 2023 annual meeting of stockholders.
