VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich., April 11, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC) will demonstrate its automotive intellect at the 2008 SAE World Congress April 14-17 at Detroit's Cobo Center, with experts involved in organizing nine technical sessions, giving five presentations and submitting three technical papers.

"The SAE World Congress offers an opportunity for those of us in the auto industry to share insights on technological advancements and trends for a changing global industry," said Tim Yerdon, director, Visteon global innovation. "As a company rich in innovation and thought leadership, Visteon is pleased to share what we've learned with our engineering colleagues to help move the industry forward, while benefiting from their knowledge as well.

"The number of Visteon employees who have dedicated their time and passion to this event -- both directly and indirectly -- is impressive and reflects the breadth of our automotive expertise," Yerdon added.

Joe LaRussa, a Visteon program manager, is one of nine Visteon experts who have organized and will lead technical sessions at the SAE World Congress. LaRussa, who is organizing the Management and Leadership in Engineering and Manufacturing Organizations session, said he volunteered for the role after attending last year's Congress. He has dedicated a considerable amount of time over the past year to ensure the session is a success.

The responsibilities of a technical session organizer are all-encompassing. The role entails soliciting authors for the papers, establishing a review committee, facilitating feedback to the authors, reviewing presentations and then finally, giving welcoming remarks the day of the session and introducing the presenters.

LaRussa started soliciting abstracts for the session nearly a year ago. He noted that serving as a session chair is not only a great way to make business contacts, but also to expand one's knowledge base and area of expertise -- "especially if you've always focused on engineering."

The Management and Leadership in Engineering and Manufacturing Organizations session will take place at 9 a.m. Wednesday, April 16, in room W1-52. This half-day session will focus on unique circumstances and issues in the automotive industry that can drive leadership development and management skill.
