Commenting on the appointment, Joyson Safety Systems Chairman Mr. Jeff Wang said, “Guido brings significant global leadership and industry expertise to Joyson Safety Systems following the company’s recent formation through the combination of Key Safety Systems and substantially all of the global assets of Takata Corporation. I look forward to working closely with Guido and to leveraging his experience as we strengthen and grow Joyson Safety Systems’ position as a world-class leader in automotive safety.”

Mr. Tang will remain with the organization as a senior advisor to Mr. Wang and Mr. Durrer. He will also continue his role as an Executive Director on the Joyson Safety Systems board of directors.
Mr. Wang added, “I would like to thank Yuxin Tang for his strong leadership and contributions to Joyson Safety Systems, including his work to close the Takata acquisition and set the company on a strong path for the future.”
