CVG president, CEO announces plans to retire

Jason Cannon March 1, 2013

Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer, Mervin Dunn has announced his intent to retire this year.  Dunn will remain with CVG until a successor is named.

Once a successor is picked, Dunn will retire from employment with the Company and resign from the Board of Directors.

“It is difficult to depart from something I have built over the last 13 years, and I have so many colleagues and friends at CVG that I will miss day to day,” Dunn says.

Dunn began his CVG career as the President of Trim Systems in 1999 and was appointed President and CEO in June 2002.  During his tenure, he oversaw more than a dozen acquisitions, led the evolution from Trim Systems to Commercial Vehicle Group, guided CVG through its Initial Public Offering and guided the development and execution of a strategic plan that has resulted in organic growth, diversified end markets and an expanding global footprint.

“Merv leaves CVG with our appreciation for his many contributions during a period of tremendous change,” Chairman of the Board, Richard A. Snell says. “Thanks to Merv’s leadership, Commercial Vehicle Group is poised for a new period of growth and success.”

The Board of Directors has initiated a search for a new CEO which will include internal candidates.
