Mark Shasteen, a 30 year veteran of the automotive industry, has joined CTDI as vice president of the company’s automotive business segment. Most recently, Shasteen spent 13 years in a number of executive leadership positions with Delphi Corporation, a leading automotive products and service solution provider. He started his career working for the Packard Electric Division of General Motors. Shasteen will report directly to the company’s chairman and CEO, Gerald J. Parsons.
“We are thrilled to have Mark join CTDI to help launch our Reman 8.0 solution to the automotive industry,” said Parsons. “He has a deep understanding of where the vehicle electronic component business is going, which now represents a large percentage of the cost of a new vehicle. He is the ideal person to help lead us forward.”
