ELYRIA, Ohio — Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems has added two new VPs to its executive management team. Robert Legato has been named vice-president of integrated supply chain and Bill Mossing has been promoted to vice-president and general manager of modules.
Legato joins Bendix after more than 20 years of strategic sourcing and supply chain experience in the global manufacturing arena. In his role as vice-president of integrated supply chain, Legato will focus on achieving bottom-line results and supporting the company’s improvement initiatives in supply chain and customer service. His key responsibilities will be to lead and drive improvement strategies in inventory management, freight management, demand planning, and other areas within the supply chain. Legato will also develop and manage global purchasing strategies such as global sourcing, purchasing, and delivery, as well as materials cost reduction to help meet Bendix short- and long-term business growth goals.
In his new role as vice-president and general manager of the Bendix modules business, Mossing will drive the continued expansion of the integrated modules strategy, with a focus on building and maintaining strong customer relations; lead partnerships with OEMs to launch future intelligent technologies designed to enhance and expand module capabilities; and identify new and existing business opportunities for profitable growth. Mossing will also provide executive governance for the multi-site Bendix Huntington manufacturing operations. He most recently filled a dual role as product line director for specialty and actuation products and assistant general manager of Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake, the Bendix wheel-end joint venture with Dana Commercial Vehicle Products.
“With the addition of Bill and Bob Legato, we are fortunate to have cultivated an effective and experienced management team that will enable us to continue to move forward in our quest to develop and deliver the products that improve highway safety,” said Joe McAleese, president and CEO of Bendix.
