Paige has worked for suppliers including Johnson Controls Inc. and American Axle and Manufacturing (AAM), where he was CEO of AAM’s UK-based subsidiary Albion Automotive.

“As CEO of HDT Automotive, I am excited to be at the helm of this global leader of automotive fluid transfer systems,” says Paige. “HDT Automotive is uniquely positioned to deliver products, technologies, and services to its world-class customer base by utilizing and leveraging best practices throughout the company. I am grateful to have such a deeply committed team. The input, engagement and guidance of all HDT Automotive employees will play a vital role in this transformational and exciting process.”

Paige holds both a bachelor’s and law degree from Michigan State University.
