“Today is a very exciting day as we begin this new chapter as an independent business,” said Brady Ericson, President and Chief Executive Officer of PHINIA. “With our focused strategy, scale, talented workforce, and strong financial resources, this move gives us the freedom to grow our business and create value for our customers, employees, and shareholders. Our customers are looking for quality, efficiency, performance, and reliability, and PHINIA is pleased to be their global partner.”
Ericson has over 30 years of industry experience and brings in-depth knowledge of the global commercial vehicle, industrial and automotive markets and an extensive engineering background. He previously led three different business units of BorgWarner and was BorgWarner’s first Chief Strategy Officer. He is joined by a strong executive team with a track record of success, including Chris Gropp, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Gropp has spent over 20 years with BorgWarner, and she most recently held the position of Vice President of Finance for Fuel Systems and Aftermarket.
“We believe that PHINIA’s strong margins, cash flow and low leverage position the company to deliver solid total shareholder returns through profitable growth, competitive dividends and opportunistic share repurchases,” said Gropp. “We are committed to our strategic and financial priorities, which include disciplined growth and reinvestment in the business to maintain our product leadership position and to support our customers with components and systems.”

“Our strategy centers around developing sustainable solutions for internal combustion engines and leveraging our technology for alternative fuels which we believe will rapidly become a key contributor on our journey to carbon neutrality. Our vision of a sustainable future includes a wide range of solutions including carbon-neutral and carbon-free fuels,” said Ericson.
