DETROIT -- Visteon Corp. has named John Donofrio as senior vice president and general counsel, effective June 13.
He will report to Mike Johnston, Visteon's CEO and chairman-elect.
The 43-year-old Donofrio was vice president and general counsel for Honeywell Aerospace in Phoenix. He also worked in private practice in New York and Washington.
"John brings an excellent mix of blue-chip law firm experience and senior counsel experience with a leading global manufacturer," Johnston said.
Visteon ranks No. 2 on the Automotive News list of the top 150 suppliers to North America with North American original-equipment automotive parts sales of $11.32 billion in 2004.
Former parent Ford Motor Co. and Visteon announced a tentative deal last week for Ford to take back 24 plants and engineering units from Visteon in a $1.9 billion move.
