Accuride president and CEO Rick Dauch has resigned from the company, taking on a new role as the CEO of Delphi Technologies.
The Accuride board of directors has named Jason Luo as the company’s interim president and chief executive officer to serve while the company searches for a permanent replacement for Dauch. Dauch had served in the top job since 2011.
Luo has been a director of Accuride since March 2018 and serves as a senior advisor to Crestview Partners, the majority owner of Accuride. Prior to that, Luo was the chairman and CEO of Ford China.
“Crestview and Jason have worked together closely and successfully for over a decade and Accuride is fortunate to have such a talented and highly respected executive lead the company’s outstanding team as we search for a permanent CEO,” said Thomas S. Murphy, chairman of the board of directors for Accuride.
“It has been my honor and privilege to lead this world-class team of talented and committed employees since 2011,” said Dauch. “Accuride today is well positioned to continue its strategic global expansion, and I have every confidence in its future success.”
