Feb 11, 2019   People

Tenneco Inc. announced that business leader Denise Gray has been appointed to its Board of Directors effective March 1. Additionally, she will be a founding member, along with several current Tenneco board members, of the board of directors for the new Tenneco powertrain technology company that will emerge later this year out of Tenneco’s acquisition of Federal-Mogul in 2018 and the subsequent separation into two new, publicly traded companies.

"We are very pleased to welcome Denise, a true leader in business, to our board,” said Gregg M. Sherrill, Chairman of the Board of Directors. “Denise is not only a highly successful and respected executive, she is a true innovator in automotive technology, having led global technical organisations that have transformed the industry. I expect Denise will make significant contributions to the current Tenneco organisation and play a critical role in the formation of the new Tenneco board of directors later this year.”


Gray is currently President of LG Chem Michigan Inc. Tech Centre in Troy, Michigan overseeing the North American subsidiary of South Korean LG Chem Ltd., one of the world’s largest lithium-ion battery manufacturers. 


Previously, she was Vice President, Powertrain Electrification at AVL List GMBH in Graz, Austria and North America. She also spent 30 years at General Motors in roles of increasing responsibility including heading up Global Battery Systems Engineering where she was recognised as “the battery czar,” and a driving force behind General Motors’ Chevrolet Volt vehicle. 


She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Kettering University and a Master’s degree in Engineering Management Technology from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.


Ms. Gray will be nominated for re-election at the company’s 2019 annual meeting of stockholders.
