Federal-Mogul reveals new CEO

Federal-Mogul has announced that its current VP for the powertrain energy division, Rainer Jueckstock, will become the company’s new CEO at the end of the month, when José Maria Alapont retires.

Alapont, who is also stepping down as president, will remain with the US Tier 1 in a consulting role to assist with the transition and will also remain on the company’s board of directors. As well as assuming the position of CEO, Jueckstock will also join the company’s board.

“José Maria has been an exceptional leader in turning around Federal-Mogul and building it into a world-class global enterprise. On behalf of Federal-Mogul’s board of directors, I want to sincerely thank José Maria for his dedicated service, for remaining with the company longer than he had originally committed and for his willingness to assist the company during this transition. José Maria has more than vindicated my belief in him when he joined Federal-Mogul seven years ago,” said Carl C. Icahn, Federal-Mogul’s non-executive chairman.

Discussing his appointment, Jueckstock commented, “Federal-Mogul is truly a great company with a successful history spanning more than 100 years. José Maria is leaving the company in a very strong competitive position, and I am honored to have been elected CEO. I also look forward to working with the new CEO of our aftermarket division to continue to build value for Federal-Mogul’s shareholders and customers.”
