Öhlins Racing

McAllister Strikes Gold

Tenneco, the $18bn sales and 78,000 employee global automotive giant, has announced that former Harley-Davidson executive and Tucker Powersports President and CEO Marc McAllister is to join its Michigan based Öhlins Racing subsidiary as the brand's new Vice President and General Manager.

A Tenneco news release stated that "McAllister will be charged with taking the legendary European brand and capturing opportunities for growth with a global audience - especially in North America - which provides multiple opportunities for success."

Tenneco CEO Jim Voss is quoted as saying: "The Öhlins team has successfully positioned the business, technology and product lines to claim the title of the world leader in high-performance suspension for both two and four-wheel vehicles. We are thrilled to have Marc join the Öhlins leadership team."

Tenneco acquired Öhlins a year after its $5.4bn 2018 acquisition of Ferodo brake pads owner Federal Mogul, folding them both into a newly formed division called 'Driv'.
