Navistar International Corporation has named Kevin Sheehan to its board of directors, effective immediately. Sheehan replaces Daniel Ninivaggi, who resigned from the board after more than a year of service.

Sheehan has held a number of executive roles in the transportation and gaming industries. Most recently, from August 2016 to June 2018, Sheehan served as the president and chief executive officer of Scientific Games, a gaming and lottery company.

Sheehan has been appointed to the board's audit and compensation committees.

"We welcome Kevin to the board, and look forward to his experience and fresh insight, which I'm confident will continue to drive shareholder value," said Troy Clarke, Navistar chairman, president and chief executive officer. "I also want to thank Dan for his contributions to our company, and we wish him well in his future endeavors."

Ninivaggi, the chief executive officer of Icahn Automotive Group LLC and a managing director of Icahn Enterprises L.P.'s Automotive Segment, joined Navistar's board of directors in August 2017.
