Enschede, the Netherlands - Apollo Tyres Ltd has named Luis Ceneviz, CEO of Apollo Tyres South Africa Ltd, to become CEO of Apollo Vredestein B.V., succeeding Rob Oudshoorn, who's leaving the company after 18 years as CEO.
Oudshoorn is joining the executive board of Pons Holding, a Dutch trading and services company. He leaves Apollo Vredestein officially on 31 Dec.
Neeraj Kanwar, vice chairman and managing director of Apollo Tyres, lauded Oudshoorn for his "valuable services" as CEO of Vredestein Banden B.V. and later Apollo Vredestein after Apollo acquired the Dutch tyre maker.
"Post the Apollo acquisition," Kanwar said, "Rob has been active in the integration process of both the companies and has played a leadership role in the growth and profitability of Apollo Vredestein."
Oudshoorn joined then-independent Vredestein in 1994 after 13 years with Group Michelin, where he held a number of international executive positions.
Ceneviz has more than 30 years' experience in the tyre industry having worked with Apollo Tyres and with Goodyear in various global locations, including India.
Riaz Haffejee, COO of Apollo Tyres South Africa, will succeed Ceneviz as CEO, effective 1 Jan.
