Tenneco Inc. announced today the appointment of Ron Hundzinski as executive vice president of finance, effective Jan. 1, 2019. Hundzinski will report to Roger Wood, Tenneco co-CEO. Hundzinski recently announced his retirement as chief financial officer (CFO) at BorgWarner Inc., effective Dec. 31.
Upon completion of all required steps and related board approvals to spin off the new aftermarket ride performance company (the SpinCo) in 2019, it is expected that Hundzinski will serve as the executive vice president and CFO of Tenneco.
“I’m very pleased to welcome Ron to Tenneco,” said Wood. “His financial expertise, leadership skills and deep experience in the powertrain industry will bring a unique and valuable perspective to our management team. I’m excited to work together with Ron as we combine Tenneco’s Clean Air business with the recently acquired Federal-Mogul Powertrain businesses into a new company committed to making the world’s engines cleaner and more efficient.”
Hundzinski has served as CFO and executive vice president of BorgWarner Inc. since 2012. During his 13-year career with BorgWarner, he held a range of finance leadership positions including treasurer, principal accounting officer and vice president of finance for the BorgWarner Turbo Systems business.
Prior to joining BorgWarner, Hundzinski held leadership positions in finance at Emerson Electric, GKN and Meridian Automotive. He has been an independent director of Gentherm Inc. since 2016. He holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from Western Michigan University and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Colorado–Boulder.
Jason Hollar will continue to serve as executive vice president and CFO of Tenneco until the spinoff and is expected to serve as the executive vice president and CFO of the SpinCo.
