Faurecia North America
By definition, a leader is out in front, taking the first steps down a path and voluntarily accepting whatever risks may come. There can be no leadership without a willingness to do things no one else has attempted and to be the first to face whatever challenges come with those bold decisions. It should be no surprise, then, that Faurecia North America President Mark Stidham says the company owes its position as a leader in every market segment it serves to its innovation and willingness to push the boundaries of the automotive components market. Globally, the company is recognized as either No. 1 or No. 2 in all of its four key market segments, and Stidham says that is the company’s goal for North America and elsewhere.
“That is a driver for Faurecia,” he says. “We want to be No. 1 or 2. We think it’s important to have that critical mass.”
