The company also announced that it has promoted Troy Clarke, former president of truck and engine operations, to the position of president and chief operating officer of Navistar.
“Lewis Campbell is a high-calibre executive who brings to Navistar deep and broad strategic, technical and operational skills and a proven track record of leadership with global industrial companies including General Motors and Textron,” said Michael Hammes, Navistar’s independent lead director.
“We are also pleased to promote Troy Clarke as president and chief operating officer in recognition of the significant contributions he has made in challenging assignments since joining the company in early 2010.
“Our board and management are aligned with a clear path forward, and we are confident that under the leadership of Lewis and Troy, Navistar will make continuing progress in executing its near-term strategic priorities, driving growth and creating shareholder value.”
