The GM CEO who brought GM out of bankruptcy has been named CEO of seating supplier Adient.

Fritz Henderson took over from Rick Wagoner as CEO of GM in 2009, just after the company's bankruptcy. Henderson had served as VP previously and had been at GM since 1984.

Adient was spun-off from supplier Johnson Controls in 2016. The company employs 75,000 in 230 plants in 33 countries around the world. It develops and manufactures seats and seating mechanisms for cars and trucks, as well as for airliners.

The company has struggled, losing $168 million in the second fiscal quarter of this year. As part of a restructuring, the company is bringing in Henderson. That's following the sudden resignation of the company's previous CEO, Bruce McDonald.

Since leaving GM, Henderson ran SunCoke Energy from its IPO until last year. He has served on the Adient board since the company was split off in 2016.
