David S. Graziosi Now CEO of Allison Transmission

Allison Transmission announced today that David S. Graziosi has begun serving as the company’s CEO. He previously served as president and chief financial officer since January 2016.

Graziosi’s selection as the next CEO was first announced by the company’s board of directors in August 2017. He succeeds Lawrence E. Dewey, who retired May 31 as Allison’s longest-serving executive in its 103-year history

Graziosi, 52, joined Allison as executive vice president, CFO and treasurer in November 2007, shortly after the sale of Allison by General Motors to The Carlyle Group and Onex Corp., which ultimately led to an initial public offering in March 2012. Graziosi was named president in January 2016, and in that role oversees Operations, Purchasing and Supplier Quality, Quality and Reliability, Legal, Corporate Affairs and Communications, Internal Audit, Human Resources, Information Systems and Services, and Financial activities. Graziosi began his career in public accounting and has extensive experience in multinational manufacturing businesses.

In addition to becoming CEO, Graziosi will also retain his role as president.

In May, the board announced that G. Frederick Bohley III would succeed Graziosi as Allison’s CFO, also effective June 1. Bohley has been with Allison since 1991 and most recently served as vice president for finance and as treasurer, a role that he will retain along with his new responsibilities.
