The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has named Ryan Waldron vice president, Global Off-Highway Businesses, with responsibility for leading the company’s Global Aviation and Global Off-the-Road (OTR) segments.
Waldron was most recently a vice president in Goodyear’s Americas region, where he was responsible for strategy and business development. In that role, Waldron was instrumental in driving a number of strategies that advanced Goodyear’s competitive position in the market, according to Goodyear.
“Ryan has a deep understanding of our business, and his proven track record of capitalizing on growth and industry leadership opportunities will serve us well in these important global off-highway segments,” said Steve McClellan, president, Goodyear Americas.
Since joining Goodyear in 2003, Waldron has held a variety of leadership positions across the company, including in its North America Supply Chain and Consumer businesses, as well as its Global OTR and Off-Highway businesses.
“I am excited to return to Off-Highway and build on the knowledge and experiences I had there earlier in my career,” said Waldron. “These businesses present great growth opportunities for Goodyear, and I look forward to working with the team to build our brand and position in both Aviation and OTR.”
