Dave Laubie, long-time head of Bridgestone’s U.S. sales engineering efforts, has retired.
Laubie was vice president of sales engineering, and had been with the company since 1970. His retirement was effective Feb. 1.
William Thomas, most recently the assistant plant manager for Bridgestone Argentina, will assume Laubie’s responsibilities in the role of executive director of sales engineering.
