Lead-acid batteries maker Clarios has hired Mark Wallace as its new chief executive officer.
Wallace will take over from John Barkhouse, who had been filling the post on an interim basis and who will resume his previous role of chairman, Clarios announced recently.
In his new role, Wallace will lead Clarios’ initiatives to strengthen existing business interests and advance its strategic business plan, Barkhouse said in a statement.
Wallace joins Clarios from propulsions and automotive solutions company Dana Inc, where he was executive vice president and president of commercial vehicle drive and motion systems.
Clarios produces “one in three of the world’s car batteries,” the company noted in a statement. Moreover, its technology initiatives serve different batteries types across the personal and commercial four-wheeler vehicles market.
