TROY, Mich. — Meritor, Inc. (NYSE: MTOR) today announced that it has appointed Steven Beringhause as a Class II director, with a term expiring at the 2020 annual meeting of shareholders. His appointment is effective on Dec. 1, 2019, and will increase the size of the company’s board of directors to 10 members.
Beringhause has extensive experience in managing advanced technology for commercial applications and leading businesses with P&L responsibility due to his many years with Sensata Technologies. Sensata is a spin-off of Texas Instruments, where he has been the chief technology officer since 2015.
In that position, he focuses on identifying, evaluating and developing new megatrend applications for Sensata, primarily in electrification, autonomous vehicles and the IoT (internet of things).
Prior to this position, he was executive vice president, performance sensing, leading Sensata’s largest business unit, and driving excellent growth and profitability improvement for many years.
Beringhause, 54, joined Sensata’s predecessor company, Texas Instruments, in 1988. He held a series of positions of increasing responsibility and oversight in engineering, where he helped shift the company’s focus to safety sensors for automotive and commercial vehicle applications. Beringhause has a master of science and bachelor of science—both in mechanical engineering—from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Meritor’s CEO and president, Jay Craig, said, “We look forward to Steve joining Meritor’s board of directors.
