DARMSTADT, Germany—TrelleborgVibracoustic has appointed Frank Mueller as its new CEO, replacing Hans-Juergen Goslar, who will retire in the first quarter of 2016.
Mueller joins the firm after serving as vice president and general manager of TRW Automotive's Global Occupant Safety Systems business. He previously served in a number of other roles, including president and CEO at Behr America.
“I am very pleased to welcome Frank Mueller to TrelleborgVibracoustic,” Peter Nilsson, president and CEO of Trelleborg A.B., said in a statement. “His vast global experience within the automotive industry makes him a competent successor to Hans-Juergen Goslar and a suitable CEO to lead TrelleborgVibracoustic into its exciting future.”
Goslar has been the CEO of the joint venture between Trelleborg and Freudenberg GmbH since 2012 and prior to that served as CEO of Vibracoustic since 2008.
Lennart Johansson, a member of the management board of TrelleborgVibracoustic, will end his assignment on Feb. 1. The firm will reduce the board from four to three with Johansson becoming a senior advisor in the Trelleborg Group.
