A strong leader and great collaborator, he has a proven track record of success and is well-qualified to guide The Timken Company's financial future."
Fracassa most recently served as senior vice president of planning and development. He joined Timken in 2005 and has since held a variety of senior financial leadership positions including vice president of tax, senior vice president of tax and treasury, and senior vice president and group controller of the bearings and power transmission business.
Fracassa holds a bachelor's degree in accounting from the University of Detroit, a juris doctor degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, and is a certified public accountant in the state of Michigan.
