AKRON, OH — After 35 years, Scott Meyer has announced he will retire from his post as president of Akron, Ohio-based Ken-Tool, a manufacturer of specialty tire changing tools and hand tools.

Meyer will continue working with Ken-Tool as vice-chairman, moving away from the day-to-day operations of the business, focusing more on business growth and development including product and market development, business and marketing strategy and industry and customer relationship building. Meyer said this change also allows him to devote more time to several community and industry activities as well as more time with his family. Meyer currently serves as chairman of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association.

“I look forward to this new chapter in my life at Ken-Tool and want to extend my thanks to all of you for the support you gave me personally and to Ken-Tool,” he said.

Sales and Marketing Manager Beth Skove has been promoted to vice president. Skove has worked for Ken-Tool for 20 years, spending the majority of her time in sales and marketing. Skove will continue to oversee Ken-Tool’s sales and marketing activities, and will also serve as a member of the company’s executive committee.
