TOLEDO, OH — Dana Corp. has elected former Goodyear chairman Samir Gibara and David Berges, chairman, CEO and president of Hexcel Corp. to its board of directors.

Dana Chairman Glen Hiner made the announcement.

“Both David Berges and Samir Gibara are proven business leaders with a wealth of experience in manufacturing, technology and the vehicular industry,” Hiner said. “We’re excited about the talent and perspective these two individuals will bring to the Dana board on behalf of our shareholders.”

Berges started his career in a variety of managerial and technical positions at the General Electric Co. From 1986 to 1994, he served in executive positions at two divisions of the Barnes Group Inc. He then became a vice president and general manager of Aerospace Engine Systems and Accessories at AlliedSignal. In 1997, he joined the Automotive Systems Group of Honeywell International Inc. as its president. In July 2001, he was named chairman and CEO at Hexcel; he became president of the company the following year.

Gibara joined Goodyear in 1964 as a management trainee in France. His career there has included leading operations in Morocco, Canada, France and all of Europe. He left Goodyear briefly to serve as vice president of marketing for International Harvester in Europe. In 1992, Gibara was promoted to vice president of strategic planning and business development at Goodyear and, in 1994, executive vice president with responsibility for North American tire operations. He was elected to the Goodyear board of directors in 1995 and elected its CEO in 1996. He served as Goodyear’s chairman from 1996 to 2003.

In addition to his Dana Corp. appointment, Gibara serves on the board of directors of Sumitomo Rubber Industries and International Paper.

Dana also reelected the following nine individuals to its board of directors: Benjamin Bailar, Charles Baillie, Michael Burns, Edmund Carpenter, Cheryl Grise, Glen Hiner, James Kelly, Marilyn Marks and Richard Priory.
