Dana has named James Kamsickas president and chief executive officer, effective 11 August.

Kamsickas moves from the same position at International Automotive Components (IAC) Group since 2012, after serving as CEO and president, North America and Asia, since 2007, when the company was established. He will also serve as a director of Dana.

Kamsickas replaces Roger Wood, who in January announced plans to retire. Wood will continue as a member of the company’s board of directors through a transition period.

Kamsickas has more than 25 years of global automotive and business experience. Under his leadership, IAC expanded around the globe, creating new manufacturing facilities and/or technical centres in China, India, Japan, Malaysia, South Africa, South Korea, and Thailand.

Previously the head of Lear’s interior systems division, Kamsickas held a number of management roles within that organisation, including vice president in its General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler customer divisions and vice president of operations of seating, electrical, and interiors divisions. Also, he served in several key positions in the development of European operations, including international assignments in Germany, Sweden, and Austria.
