Goodyear Names President of NA Tire Business
Mr McClellan will succeed Curt Andersson, who plans to pursue other professional interests.
In December 2001, Mr McClellan moved into the commercial tire business, serving as president of Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems, Goodyear's national network of commercial tire sales, retreading and service. He was promoted to vice president, Commercial Tire Systems in September 2003.
Mr McClellan has been the president of Goodyear's North American consumer tire business since August 2008. He will continue to be responsible for the business until a successor is named.
Richard Kramer, chairman, president and CEO of Goodyear, said: â€œSteve brings strong leadership and a proven track record of delivering results. Steve's career of more than 20 years at Goodyear has included progressively larger leadership positions within North American Tire. His success in running the North American consumer and commercial tire businesses and his strong relationships with customers make him a natural successor to the role.
â€œDuring Curt's tenure, we have continued our progress toward returning North American Tire to sustainable profitability. We appreciate his efforts and thank him for his work at Goodyear.â€
â€œPerformance in the first half of 2011 demonstrates strong momentum in our North American business,â€ added Mr Kramer.
Will Mr McClellanâ€™s vast experience benefit the firm?
