August 27, 2020: Clarios has appointed Chris Eperjesy as chief financial officer, the world’s biggest battery maker announced on August 20.
Eperjesy will “help support Clarios’ global growth objectives in delivering smart energy storage solutions”, the company says.
Before Clarios, Eperjesy was senior vice president and CFO at Cooper Tire & Rubber Company, the parent company of a group of firms that design and manufacture tyres for all kinds of automobiles and sell them around the world.
Eperjesy was previously CFO at automobile parts makers Twin Disc and Arctic Cat, IMAGINE, the marketing products provider, and lastly Cooper Tire & Rubber.
The appointment comes three months after Clarios appointed Mark Wallace as CEO and president. The firm was relaunched as Clarios after Brookfield Business Partners bought Power Solutions, the battery division belonging to Johnson Controls, in May last year.
Last month, Wallace presented a nine-page ‘Clarios Sustainability Blueprint’, which set out the various partnerships, policies and practices the company says it will work with in the future.
They fall under five pillars — value, operational excellence, life-cycle stewardship, transparency and advocacy.
Mark Wallace is a keynote speaker at next month’s 17th European Lead Battery Conference, which is being held online.
