Tenneco recently appointed Ron Hundzinski as the executive vice president of finance, effective January 1, 2019.

“I’m very pleased to welcome Ron to Tenneco,” Wood said. “His financial expertise, leadership skills, and deep experience in the powertrain industry will bring a unique and valuable perspective to our management team.

I’m excited to work together with Ron as we combine Tenneco’s clean air business with the recently acquired Federal-Mogul powertrain businesses into a new company committed to making the world’s engines cleaner and more efficient.”

Hundzinski served as CFO and executive VP of BorgWarner for six years. During his 13-year career with the company, he held a range of finance leadership positions including treasurer, principal accounting officer and vice president of finance for the BorgWarner turbo systems business.

Prior to joining BorgWarner, Hundzinski held leadership positions in finance at Emerson Electric, GKN and Meridian Automotive. He was an independent director at Gentherm Incorporated for two years. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in finance from Western Michigan and an MBA from the University of Colorado–Boulder.

Jason Hollar will continue to serve as executive VP and CFO of Tenneco, which is headquartered in Lake Forest IL, until the spinoff and is expected to serve as the executive VP and CFO of SpinCo.
