CLEVELAND—The transportation products provider Eaton Corp. has named Scott Adams as president of its eMobility business segment.

Company officials said Adams, who will be based at Eaton’s Southfield office, will be responsible for “leading all aspects of the business to achieve Eaton’s objectives for top-line revenue growth and profitability.” He will report to João Faria, president of Eaton’s Vehicle Group.

“Scott’s contributions to the success of our eMobility business since its inception, along with his deep understanding of vehicle markets and customers make him an excellent choice for this role,” said Faria. “His proven track record of leading organizations to achieving growth will be an asset as we work to expand our eMobility portfolio and strengthen our global capabilities.”

Adams joined Eaton in 1994 as a project engineering manager in Cleveland, Ohio, and has held numerous positions of increasing scope over his 26-year career with the company. Most recently, he was senior vice president for product strategy, sales, and marketing of eMobility, where he was responsible for developing and executing Eaton’s electrification growth strategy.

Prior to his roles within eMobility, Adams served as senior vice president for global product development, marketing, and planning in the Vehicle Group. He has also held roles as director of sales for North American automotive, business unit manager for the Vehicle Group’s Light Duty Transmission and Off-Highway businesses and led the former Truck Group’s Vehicle Solutions business unit.

Adams holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan in Ann Arrbor, a master’s degree in engineering from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and an MBA from UM.

Eaton’s eMobility business was formed in 2018 by combining Eaton’s Electrical and Vehicle businesses.
