Autoliv Inc., a global leader in automotive safety systems, has appointed Sng Yih as new president of Autoliv China and as a member of the Autoliv executive management team. Sng Yih will join Autoliv at the end of January 2022 and succeed Jennifer Cheng, who retired in November. Cheng continues as senior adviser to the CEO and will assist with the transition.


Sng Yih is an automotive industry veteran with extensive experience in leading large organizations, achieving customer satisfaction, and generating value. He brings a broad functional experience and a background of creating the most favorable conditions possible for both internal and external partners. 

“I am very pleased to welcome Sng Yih, who I expect will bring valuable knowledge and perspectives to Autoliv. The Autoliv China team, under the leadership of Jennifer Cheng, has been essential for our development in China.
