Goodyear announces new senior leadership roles
The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company has named new leaders in two of its strategic business units. Ryan Patterson has been named president of Goodyear’s Asia Pacific business unit. He has been president of the company’s North America consumer business since September 2014.
Chris Delaney will be the president of Goodyear’s Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) business unit. He precedes Patterson, having been president of the company’s Asia Pacific business since joining the company in 2015.
Scott Rogers has been named to succeed Patterson as president, North America consumer. He has been the chief marketing officer for the North America consumer business since 2009. All new roles are effective immediately.
“With the announcement of new roles for Chris, Ryan and Scott, we are placing proven Goodyear leaders in key roles that will enable us to further execute our strategy, deliver on our business objectives and create sustainable value for our shareholders,” said Goodyear Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard J Kramer.
The appointments were made concurrent with the announcement that Jean-Claude Kihn is retiring from his position as president of Goodyear’s EMEA business, effective later this year.
