Tenneco Inc. recently announced that Thomas Sabatino will join the company in the role of executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, effective Feb. 15.
“I am pleased to welcome Tom to Tenneco and the addition of his extensive legal background and global management expertise to our executive leadership team,” said Brian Kesseler, Tenneco CEO. “He brings a wealth of experience ranging from leading the corporate legal function, to managing mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and divestitures, to advising and serving on corporate and non-profit boards.”
Sabatino currently serves as co-chair of the board of directors of the Humane Society of the United States and chair of the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution as well as holding board positions with Teligent Inc., and the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School.
“I’m excited to be joining Brian and his management team at this pivotal time at Tenneco,” said Sabatino. “I look forward to helping it continue to deliver on the company’s long-term strategic objectives.”
Sabatino’s appointment follows Brandon Smith accepting a senior executive position at CHS Incorporated, a Fortune 100 agribusiness and energy company. Smith will stay on with Tenneco into March to facilitate a smooth transition.
Kesseler added, “On behalf of the board and management team, I want to thank Brandon Smith for his years of service to Tenneco. We wish him success in the next chapter of his career as Brandon has had a long-time passion for the agriculture industry.”
