DALLAS — Interstate Batteries, a leading brand of replacement automobile batteries in North America, has announced that Carlos Sepulveda will be promoted to president and CEO on May 1.

Sepulveda will replace R. Tom Miller, current president and CEO, who is retiring after 41 years in various executive positions at Interstate Batteries. In addition, Len Ruby, executive vice president has announced his retirement after 25 years with the company.

As executive vice president, Sepulveda led Interstate’s national accounts, marketing, e-commerce, legal, distributor operations, information technology, financial areas and retail initiatives. He joined Interstate in 1990 after 11 years with KPMG Peat Marwick.
