Osborne to Head Monaco & Workhorse Units

Osborne to Head Monaco & Workhorse Units

May 3, 2011 by RV Business



William Osborne

May 3, 2011- Navistar Inc. -- Announced today that William H. Osborne has been named vice president of custom products. In this role, Osborne will have accountability for Navistar’s Monaco RV and Workhorse business units, according to a news release.

Osborne was appointed to Navistar’s board of directors in September 2009 and was a member of the board’s finance committee. He resigned his board position to assume his new role.

Osborne was previously president and CEO of Federal Signal Corp. and a veteran automotive industry executive.

“We are fortunate to have Bill join our team and apply his knowledge of the industry to our business,” said Daniel C. Ustian, Navistar chairman, president and CEO. “As a former member of Navistar’s board of directors, Bill has unique insights into our company. His manufacturing and automotive experience and expertise will be of great value to Navistar as we continue to diversify and expand globally into new marketplaces.”

Osborne, 51, spent more than 30 years in the automotive industry. Prior to joining Federal Signal in September 2008, Osborne served in a number of senior-level positions with Ford Motor Co., most recently as president and CEO of Ford of Australia. Previously, he served as president and CEO of Ford of Canada. Osborne’s earlier assignments included a variety of roles in product design, development and engineering. Before his career at Ford, Osborne held positions at Chrysler and General Motors.

Osborne holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Kettering University, a master’s degree in engineering from Wayne State University and an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago.

Two weeks ago I had a tour of the Monaco factory. It just so happened that I saw him taking his own tour. From the few comments I overheard he seemed to be asking the right questions. It was a very fragmentary and inconclusive bit that I overhead, but at least he's in the factory and looking.
