Faurecia appoints two Business Group Executive Vice Presidents

Faurecia today announced  the appointment of  Christophe Schmitt as  Executive 
Vice-President, Faurecia  Emissions Control  Technologies  from May  1,  2013. 
Jean-Marc Hannequin, who has  held this post since  2002, will be retiring  at 
the end  of  the year  and  is appointed  Senior  Advisor from  May  1,  2013. 
Jean-Michel Renaudie is appointed Executive Vice-President, Faurecia  Interior 
Systems from April 1, 2013, replacing Christophe Schmitt.

Commenting on these  appointments Yann  Delabrière, Chairman and  CEO said  "I 
would like to thank Jean-Marc Hannequin for everything that he has done  since 
he joined  Faurecia in  2002 to  develop  Faurecia into  the world  leader  in 
emissions control. In particular he developed  a strong business in China  and 
South Korea, and  led the  acquisition and integration  of Emcon  Technologies 
which doubled the size  of this activity. Most  recently he has pioneered  the 
development of  the  global  truck business  and  led  a step  change  in  our 
technology portfolio.  Christophe  Schmitt is  well  placed to  continue  this 
development having led the  growth of the  Faurecia Interior Systems  business 
since 2006 to become a global leader  with the broadest range of products  and 
technologies in the  industry. I  also welcome Jean-Michel  Renaudie into  the 
Executive Committee.  He  has  a long  international  experience  in  interior 
systems and has done a remarkable job in the successful growth and  turnaround 
of the North American business and  the leadership of the acquisition of  Ford 
Saline last year."



Christophe  Schmitt  has  been  Executive  Vice-President,  Faurecia  Interior 
Systems since  2006, prior  to  which he  was Vice-President,  Mechanisms  and 
Frames Business Group now integrated into Faurecia Automotive Seating. He  has 
led the  significant  international growth  of  the Business  Group,  with  in 
particular the acquisition  of the Ford  Saline business in  North America  in 
2012. He joined  Sommer Allibert (subsequently  Faurecia Interior Systems)  in 
1990 in the UK and has held a succession of posts of increasing responsibility
in Germany and France.

Jean Michel  Renaudie  has  been  deputy  Executive  Vice-President,  Faurecia 
Interior Systems  since  September  2012.  Prior to  that  he  was  President, 
Faurecia Interior Systems North  America and led the  turnaround of the  North 
American business. He joined Sommer Allibert in 1994 and held a succession  of 
posts in France,  Belgium, Sweden  and Germany before  joining the  management 
team of Faurecia Interior Systems as Vice-President, Engineering and  Programs 
from 2002 to  2006 and then  Vice President, South  Europe Region until  2008. 
With this appointment he joins the Faurecia Executive Committee.
