His appointment is effective on Dec. 1, 2019 and will increase the size of the company's board of directors to 10 members.
Beringhause has extensive experience in managing advanced technology for commercial application and leading businesses with P&L responsibility due to his many years with Sensata Technologies, a spin-off of Texas Instruments where he has been the chief technology officer since 2015.

Prior to this position, he held the role of executive vice president, Performance Sensing, leading Sensata's largest business unit and driving excellent growth and profitability improvement for many years.
Beringhause joined Sensata's predecessor company, Texas Instruments in 1988, and held a series of positions of increasing responsibility and oversight in the engineering function where he helped shift the focus of the company to a new range of safety sensors for automotive and commercial vehicle applications. Beringhause has a Master of Science and Bachelor of Science – both in mechanical engineering – from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is 54 years old.
