Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems has named Piotr Sroka as president and chief executive officer, adding to his current role as chief operating officer. Bendix said his appointment is part of a commitment to deliver sustained growth in alignment with its parent company, Munich, Germany-based Knorr-Bremse.

Sroka, Bendix COO since July 2023, started his new role Feb. 26.

“I am deeply honored to be entrusted with the role of president and CEO at Bendix,” Sroka said. “This company is well positioned for growth. I look forward to working alongside our exceptional management team and world-class employees to further build Bendix’s foundation and momentum.”

He also maintains his position on the Bendix Leadership Committee and as president & CEO of the Bendix Executive Board with Dan Tassinari, Bendix chief financial officer and vice president of finance, indirect purchasing, and IT.

Before joining Bendix in 2023, Sroka was a member of the management board of Knorr-Bremse SfN – the company’s commercial vehicle systems division. He started that role in July 2020, and most recently was co-responsible for the European CVS division. Simultaneously, he was the senior executive leader for the global air supply & drivetrain business and industrial engineering and indirect purchasing unit for the commercial vehicle systems division.

He brings more than 20 years of international experience in the automotive industry. Before joining Knorr-Bremse in Munich, he was vice president, integration management office (WABCO-ZF) in Wrocław, Poland. Sroka was a part of WABCO for 11 years, moving through the leadership ranks, primarily based in Poland, but also as general manager and business leader – global steering at WABCO’s R.H. Sheppard Co. business from July 2017 to August 2019.

Sheppard became a part of Bendix in 2020. Early in his career, Sroka held roles in production and quality at Weldmet Industries in Roseville, Michigan; Delphi in Kraków, Poland; and Valvex S.A. in Jordanów, Poland.

“Sound, experienced leaders supply the vision and guidance that enable ongoing business growth,” said Bernd Spies, member of the Knorr-Bremse AG Executive Board – responsible for the CVS division. “Piotr is a true embodiment of this notion. His insight, vision, drive, and transformation mindset continue to be a solid addition to the Bendix leadership team, helping drive long-term success. He brings deep business acumen, global vision, diversity of experience, and strong product and operations expertise at a critical time in our organizational growth.”

Sroka holds two master’s degrees – in mechanics & mechanical engineering and management and production engineering – from the University of Technology in Rzeszów, Poland. In addition, he holds an executive MBA from the University of Economics in Stockholm, Sweden, and Kraków.
