Goodyear Directors Re-elected, Chairman Keegan to Serve Another Three-Year Term

Shareholders of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. have announced their selections for the company's board of directors. Robert Keegan, chairman and CEO of the Akron, Ohio-based tiremaker, has been re-elected to serve another three year term, earning 84.5 percent of the company's shareholders votes. Keegan's re-election is seen as a positive indicator of improvement for the tiremaker. Keegan has led Goodyear through a difficult period during which the company eliminated 6,000 jobs and lost $280 million in accounting errors. During that time, its shares plummeted to a low of $3.67 last year. In early trading Wednesday, shares were up 8 cents to $9.22 on the New York Stock Exchange.
