Recent Developments

On April 29, 2024, Sensata announced significant leadership changes. Jeff Cote, the current CEO and President, has decided to retire and will also step down from the Board of Directors effective April 30, 2024. In response, the Board has named Martha Sullivan as the Interim President and CEO and has initiated a search for Cote’s permanent successor through a CEO Search Committee composed of board members Andrew Teich, Martha Sullivan, and John Mirshekari.

Board Enhancement

Further strengthening its leadership framework, Sensata, following discussions with Elliott Investment Management L.P., has appointed Phillip Eyler to its Board. Starting July 1, 2024, Eyler will contribute his extensive experience as a CEO in a related technology sector, enhancing Sensata’s strategy and shareholder value creation. With Eyler’s appointment, Sensata’s Board will expand to eleven directors, maintaining a majority of independent members.

This cooperation aims to enhance continuous dialogue and joint efforts to foster long-term value for all shareholders.
