At just 14 years old, Michael McGee got a job unloading tractor-trailers filled with used tires. From those humble beginnings, McGee has come a long way. Today at age 29, he is vice president at Public Tire Warehouse located in Goldsboro, N.C. He says his typical workday consists of two essential activities – retail sales and wholesale sales.
Jason Lightbody starts his day before most people wake up. As vice president of tire and oil operations at Houska Automotive, Lightbody is up at 5 a.m. checking emails and in the office by 6:30 a.m. By 7 a.m., things start to get busy – wholesale deliveries begin to get processed and retail and commercial customers are calling for tires, service appointments or diesel emissions tests.
