“Since our investment in Accuride in 2016, the company has embarked on a strategy to transform itself from a North American supplier into a global leader,”said Thomas S. Murphy, Jr., chairman of the board of directors. “Over the past two years, Accuride has more than doubled its revenues after completing two acquisitions which added substantial operations in Europe and Asia. We are excited to continue to execute on this strategy with Jason Luo as Interim CEO of the company. Crestview and Jason have worked together closely and successfully for over a decade and Accuride is fortunate to have such a talented and highly respected executive lead the company’s outstanding team as we search for a permanent CEO.”
