Accuride Reorganizes Leadership for Global Plans

AccurideLeadershipAccuride Corp. has reorganized its leadership team to support its planned global expansion.

The company recently acquired a majority stake in the Italian steel-wheel manufacturer Gianetti Ruote S.r.l., in a partnership with CLN S.p.A. This partnership was the North American supplier’s first step to going global.

In an effort to support global growth, a number of leadership changes have been made.

Former senior vice president of operations, Scott D. Hazlett, has been promoted to president of wheels. He will be responsible for integrating the Gianetti Ruote joint venture and leading the global growth of Accuride’s Wheels business.

Former chief financial officer, Gregory A. Risch, has also been promoted and will now serve as president of the company’s Gunite business unit. In his new role, Risch will lead the Gunite business following capital investments and the adoption of LEAN manufacturing systems.

Michael A. Hajost will join Accuride’s leadership team as senior vice president and chief financial officer, effective Nov. 30. Risch will continue serving as CFO until Hajost assumes his new role. Prior to Acccuride, Hajost lead the treasury and investor relations functions for Carpenter Technology Corp. for the last seven years.
