SUPPLIER CEO: Yann Delabriere

Faurecia CEO<br /><br />Thanks to the swift and savvy moves of CEO Yann Delabriere, Faurecia has emerged from the global financial crisis a bigger, stronger, more diverse supplier. So far this year, the frugal French partsmaker has spent less than 35 million euros in cash to acquire two companies with a combined 2.8 billion euros ($3.5 billion) in sales. One deal strengthened Faurecia in the fast-growing clean-emissions sector and the other earned it an award from Europe's largest automaker, Volkswagen AG. For turning the global downturn into an opportunity to succeed, Delabriere is our 2010 Supplier CEO Eurostar.
