DEARBORN, MI — Visteon Chairman and CEO Peter Pestillo today extended condolences to the family of Robert Teeter, a member of the company’s board of directors who died Sunday after an illness at age 65.
Teeter had been a director of Visteon since the company became independent in June 2000, and was re-elected to the board on May 12. He was president of Coldwater Corp., an Ann Arbor, Mich.-based provider of consulting and research services.
Prior to Coldwater Corp., Teeter held several senior management positions including president of Market Opinion Research from 1966 to 1987. During that time he coordinated public opinion polls for several Republican presidents and political candidates.
At the time of his death, Teeter also served on the boards of the Bank of Ann Arbor, Kaydon Corp. and United Parcel Service, Inc.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Bob Teeter, whose leadership, foresight and strategic counsel have been hugely important to Visteon,” Pestillo said. “On behalf of Visteon’s 72,000 employees around the world, I offer my condolences to his wife Betsy and their family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.”
