I have loved being CEO of this company for the past decade, and I'm very happy that Terrence is succeeding me.”

"I appreciate the confidence of the Board and I am excited about the opportunity to lead TE into its next phase, building upon our strategy, attractive business model and commitment to value creation for shareholders. We've made strong progress in focusing on harsh environment applications and established TE as the clear leader in connectivity and sensor solutions. I look forward to working with the 72’000 TE employees around the globe who help our customers solve complex challenges for an increasingly connected world," said Curtin.

Curtin was appointed president of TE Connectivity in March 2015 and elected to the Board of Directors in March 2016. In his role as president, Curtin has responsibility for all of the company's connectivity and sensor businesses, as well as mergers and acquisition activities.
