US-based OEM, Wabash National, welcomed Stuart Taylor II to the company’s Board of Directors and Audit and Compensation Committees this month.
Taylor serves as the CEO of the Taylor Group, a private equity firm focused on creating and acquiring businesses. In this role, which he has held since 2001, Taylor oversees the firm’s sourcing and execution of investments and acquisition and disposition transactions. In addition, Taylor delivers deep financial and transactional expertise based on his Wall Street career along with significant experience as a director for publicly traded companies.
“We are pleased to welcome Stuart to the Board of Directors of Wabash National Corporation,” said Dr Martin Jischke, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Wabash National.
“Stuart brings to the company over 25 years of financial and transactional expertise and an in-depth knowledge of strategic M&A and corporate development.
“He is an exceptional addition to the Board and an excellent choice to represent the Company’s stockholders,” he said. “We look forward to his contributions.”
The appointment of Taylor is reported to bring Wabash National’s Board to eight members. With the exception of the Company’s CEO, Brent Yeagy, the directors qualify as independent directors under the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange and the Company's Corporate Governance Guidelines. All of the Board of Director committees continue to be comprised of only independent directors.
