Automotive Industry Veteran James S. McElya Joins Superior Industries Board of Directors


VAN NUYS, CA--Dec. 9, 2013: Superior Industries International, Inc. today announced the appointment of James S. McElya to its board of directors.

“Jim McElya brings to the Superior Industries board outstanding automotive industry experience at both the operating and management levels”

McElya, 66, fills a board seat that was temporarily held by Kerry A. Shiba, Superior’s executive vice president and chief financial officer, who remains in his officer role. Shiba was appointed to the board on April 12, 2013, while the company embarked on a search for a qualified independent director to fill a vacancy.

McElya held a 17-year career with Cooper-Standard Holdings, Inc., a publicly traded company that is a leading global supplier of various products for the automotive industry. He served the company in a variety of leadership capacities, including chief executive officer from 2004 through 2012 and as non-executive chairman from October 2012 until May 2013. McElya currently is chairman of the board of directors of Affinia Group, a supplier of automotive aftermarket parts, and is the past chairman and current member of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association.

“Jim McElya brings to the Superior Industries board outstanding automotive industry experience at both the operating and management levels,” said Steven J. Borick, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to the independent and fresh thinking he will provide our company at a time of positive change and industry strength. I also wish to thank Kerry Shiba for stepping in at the board level during the past eight months and for the critical management role he continues to play in the company.”
