DENSO, a leading mobility supplier, today announced that it has named Santosh Singh vice president of Human Resources (HR) for North America, effective August 16. In this role, he will help shape DENSO efforts to reinforce and grow its collaborative culture as the company powers society’s shift to green, safe and seamless mobility.
Singh, 44, will oversee six HR departments and their efforts to recruit, retain, train, develop and engage DENSO employees in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. He will be based out of DENSO’s North American headquarters in Southfield, Michigan.
“As we undertake a deep, cultural transformation, the addition of Santosh to our regional leadership team will help accelerate our progress and build a world-class HR function,” said Stephen Milam, executive vice president of Corporate Functions for DENSO in North America. “After a rigorous search and interview process, we were impressed with Santosh’s exceptional track record of success and leading people forward.”
With more than 23 years of corporate leadership experience across the United States, China and India, Singh has proven his ability to adapt to leadership roles across cultures and functions.
