Jeffrey Sternberg, Ph.D., has been named global automotive technology director at DuPont, Geneva, Switzerland. In this role, he is charged to bring the breadth of DuPont advanced materials as well as renewably sourced materials and fuels to the auto industry as it continues to develop low emission, fuel efficient vehicles that are safe, affordable and fun to drive.

DuPont is expanding its portfolio of lightweighting solutions and is working with automakers and tier one component manufacturers on developmental projects using DuPont Vizilon, a developmental thermoplastic composite technology, for structural or load-bearing components, such as seat structures, lift-gates, cross members, bumper beams and suspension systems.

“The dynamics of the industry are reflected in the dynamics of the portfolio and I am excited to be in a role that is central to working with customers, understanding their needs and challenging our global research and development group to discover solutions,” said Sternberg. He joined DuPont in 1988 as a synthesis chemist for DuPont Crop Protection. He held several roles in the Crop Protection business before advancing to management. In 2006, he joined Central Research & Development, Materials Science and Engineering, where he led a group focused on developing materials solutions for photovoltaics that improve conversion efficiency, lower cost and extend system lifetime.
