TBC Corp.has announced an expansion of the company’s supply chain and logistics leadership team. The newest additions to the team announced this week include John Flowers as vice president of supply chain optimization and performance and David Rodriguez as vice president of supply chain planning.
Flowers joins TBC from ATD where he supported the business as senior vice president of operations for eight years and vice president of operations for eight years. In his role at ATD, he developed and implemented systems, processes and facilities that enabled systemic growth, facilitated alternate channel opportunities and permitted aggressive expansion through acquisition. Prior to his tenure with ATD, Flowers held roles in both operations and logistics at AmeriServe Distribution Services, Phillip Morris/Kraft General Foods and Interstate Motor Freight.
Rodriguez joins the team from CVS, where he concentrated on supply chain for the past seven years. Prior to CVS, he worked for Wal-Mart with a focus on supply chain, merchandising and retail operations.
Just a few months prior, in January 2018, TBC announced that XPO’s Sean O’Laughlin was named its vice president of distribution for the company.
“The addition of team members with an extensive supply chain and logistics background will be extremely beneficial to the team as we support initiatives that impact all stakeholders and areas of our business,” recognized Scott Clark, senior vice president of supply chain and logistics, who joined the team from Jo-Ann Stores LLC in September 2017.
“For the past 62 years, TBC has been a tire company ahead of the curve. We’ve been able to maintain our industry-leading position, and plan to continue doing so, through the leadership of 10,000+ associates led by team leaders with extensive industry expertise, operational knowledge and a commitment to leading with excellence,” said Erik R. Olsen, president and CEO of TBC Corporation. “The growth of the leadership on the Supply Chain and Logistics team is a testament to the expansion opportunities ahead for TBC and we’re confident we have the right people in place to lead them.”
