WABCO Holdings Inc. announces that it has appointed Sean Deason to the role of Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective immediately. Deason replaces Roberto Fioroni, who tendered his resignation after accepting a role outside WABCO with GKN Automotive, a Melrose plc owned business in the UK.
Deason joined WABCO in June 2015 and has served as Vice President, Investor Relations and Controller. Prior to joining WABCO, Deason spent 4 years with Evraz N.A., where he was Vice President, Financial Planning & Analysis. Prior to that, he spent 12 years with Lear Corporation where he served as Director, Finance, Corporate Business Planning & Analysis, Director, Finance, Asia Pacific Operations, Assistant Treasurer, as well as holding other positions of increasing responsibility from August 1999.
“I am pleased to announce Sean as WABCO’s new Chief Financial Officer following Roberto’s brief tenure here,” says Jacques Esculier, WABCO Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition to his broad accounting and finance background, Sean’s extensive experience with WABCO’s investor community will be valuable given our recent merger announcement with ZF Friedrichshafen AG. I’d like to also thank Roberto for accompanying us to this important milestone for WABCO, and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
Deason holds a Masters of International Management from Thunderbird School of Global Management and is a Certified Management Accountant.
