Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Remy International Inc. President and CEO John Weber will resign at the end of February after leading the company for seven years, the Pendleton-based automotive supplier announced Friday.

Weber, 56, has agreed to remain as a director. A company official said it was Weber's desire to stay with the company but lighten his day-to-day responsibilities.

“His wife lives in Arizona. For personal reasons, now is a good time [for him] to take a less intensive role in the operations of the business,” said Eric Struik, Remy's director of investor relations.

John Pittas, Remy’s senior vice president and chief commercial officer, will take over as CEO.

Weber's resignation comes a little more than a month after he took the company public.

Remy shares began trading at $15.85 a piece Dec. 13. The shares closed at $17 on Thursday and rose 12 cents Friday morning.

The 6,500-employee company, with about 400 people in Indiana, makes, remanufactures and distributes starters and alternators for vehicles.

Sales during the first nine months of 2012 slid 5 percent, to $865.3 million, from the previous year. The company generated a $122.7 million profit during that period after including a $74.4 million boost from a one-time tax benefit.

Remy will release fourth-quarter and year-end earnings Feb. 18.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
