Sensata Names Stebbins to GM Position
Sensata Technologies has named automotive industry veteran Russ Stebbins general manager of its global aftermarket business unit.
Sensata officials say Stebbins’ appointment “plays a critical role in supporting Sensata’s continual growth strategy and driving its leadership position in the automotive aftermarket.”
In the past decade, Stebbins has held aftermarket leadership positions with well-known brands like TRW, Lumileds and Akebono Brake Corp.
“I am excited to be part of Sensata's aftermarket family,” says Stebbins. “We have a history of impressive growth with our flagship brand, Schrader, and a bright future ahead of us. I am humbled to work with this team of experts to continue bringing Sensata’s OE expertise to the aftermarket. I am confident in our ability to realize the full potential of our current TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) business, as well as the many other OE-leading sensing products Sensata offers.”
Kelly Sadler, previous general manager, has decided to pursue another opportunity within the company and is leading the integration of PRECO, a leading supplier of radar solutions and a recent acquisition of Sensata. Sadler has played a pivotal role over the last two years in expanding Sensata’s aftermarket product portfolio globally, according to company officials.
