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,
