Detroit — Former General Motors CEO Fritz Henderson has been named interim CEO of seating supplier Adient.
John Barth, Adient's lead director, is the new interim chairman of Adient's board, the company said Monday.
Henderson, 59, had been CEO of SunCoke Energy from its initial public offering in 2011 until he retired last year. Prior to that, he steered GM through its government-led bankruptcy in 2009.
Henderson succeeds R. Bruce McDonald, who is stepping down from his role as chairman and CEO of the Plymouth, Mich., company effective immediately, and will remain as adviser to the CEO until Sept. 30.
Adient was spun off from from Johnson Controls in 2016.
In May, Henderson joined Hawksbill Group -- a Washington consulting firm founded by some of his former GM colleagues -- as a principal.
