Goodyear Announces New Senior Leadership Roles

Stocks in this article: GT

"As Arthur transitions to his new role, I would like to thank him for his leadership in Europe, Middle East and Africa over the past 12 years.  During his tenure, he has led our EMEA business to several years of record earnings while driving the integration of business processes across Goodyear's most geographically diverse region.  Under Arthur's guidance, we launched a long list of award-winning products developed from the market back and enhanced our product portfolio with a more profitable mix of premium tires. 

"Laura has played a key role in the turnaround of our North America results. During her career, she has been an outstanding executive, promoted through a series of progressively larger leadership positions, including directing our business development activities, leading investor relations, and overseeing several strategic initiatives.  Laura's deep knowledge of Goodyear, her business and financial background, and her strong relationships both inside and outside the company make her ideally suited to take on her new role as CFO.

"Damon joins the North America team as finance leader with a proven track record of delivering results at the corporate level and in the business.  His broad and deep skill set makes him the ideal choice for this critical business partner role.  Over his career, Damon has played a key role as treasurer and most recently as head of business development.  He also was instrumental in helping position our Asia Pacific business for growth as its head of finance.  I am confident in Damon's ability to help drive the North America business's continued profitable growth."

Wells, 47, has been Goodyear's executive vice president and CFO since October, 2008.  Previously, he served as senior vice president of finance and strategy and, prior to that, senior vice president, business development and treasurer.  Wells joined Goodyear as vice president and treasurer in August 2002.

De Bok, 51, has been the president of Goodyear's EMEA business unit since 2008.  Immediately prior, he was president of the company's European Union business, and earlier served as vice president, consumer tires in the region.  De Bok joined Goodyear in 2002 as vice president, sales and marketing, for consumer tires in Europe.

Thompson, 49, has been vice president of finance for the company's North American business since 2011.  During her 30-year career at Goodyear, she has earned leadership positions of increasing responsibility in various business unit and corporate finance roles in addition to successfully leading several strategic initiatives for the company.  Thompson also excelled in key externally facing roles, leading business development and investor relations.
