DeGaynor, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We also thank George for all that he has contributed to the Company since becoming CFO in 2006. For more than 10 years, George has played a key role in shaping the Company's business and financial strategy during a period of great challenge and transformation. I am confident that his contributions to the success of Stoneridge will continue in his new role."
Since 2012, Krakowiak has been Vice President, Treasury and Investor Relations, for Visteon Corporation, a leading global automotive supplier. Prior to that, he served in a number of senior financial roles during his seven years at Owens Corning, including Vice President of Finance for Owens Corning's Composite Solutions Business and Vice President and Controller of Roofing and Asphalt.

"I am excited to join the highly talented team at Stoneridge," said Krakowiak. "The foundation of the business is strong, and I look forward to partnering with the employees of Stoneridge to continue to deliver profitable growth and value creation for our shareholders."
Strickler will remain with Stoneridge to help Krakowiak with the transition in the finance organization and the previously announced relocation of the Company's headquarters from Warren, Ohio, to Novi, Michigan. In his new role, he will work on key strategic projects supporting the Company's organic and inorganic growth initiatives.
