LAKE FOREST, IL — Lois Boyd has been appointed vice president and general manager of Tenneco Automotive’s commercial vehicle segment and global program management.

In her new role, Boyd will be responsible for the company’s growth in the commercial vehicle business. She will direct efforts to leverage Tenneco’s global engineering and manufacturing strengths to expand the business with commercial vehicle customers and in new specialty markets.

Subsequently she was named vice president for the Ford business, responsible for all product lines and distribution supporting the customer globally. Boyd has been in the vehicle industry since 1980. Before joining Tenneco, she held marketing and sales positions with Vickers, including sales to the heavy duty market and working directly with engine manufacturers.
