Titan Gets Goodyear Ag Tire Exec

(Akron/Tire Review) Not only did Titan International Inc. buy Goodyear’s ag tire business and plant, the company lured Jeff Vasichek away from the tiremaker to take over as Titan Tire’s vice president of sales and marketing.

Vasichek had been general manager of Goodyear’s ag tire business.

In addition to heading all OE and replacement market sales and marketing activities, Vasichek is responsible for integrating the former Goodyear operations into Titan’s tire and wheel businesses.

"I’m very pleased that Jeff is joining the Titan team," said Morry Taylor, Titan’s chairman and CEO. “Jeff’s experience with both aftermarket and OE customers will help us to continue to develop and grow our business as the leader in the industry."
