NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Bridgestone Commercial Solutions has named John Boynton its new president.
Boynton was previously vice-president of sales. As president, he’ll oversee the daily operation, profitability and long-term strategic direction of the company’s truck and bus tire sales as well as the Bandag retreading business.
“I have had the opportunity to work with John for a number of years, and his professionalism and sound leadership have been instrumental in helping us meet the challenges of today’s dynamic truck and bus tire and retread marketplace,” said Kurt Danielson, president, US and Canada Commercial Tire Sales, BATO, and Senior Vice President, Bridgestone Americas. “I know he is the right choice to lead the BCS organization to the next level.”
Boynton has been with Bridgestone since 1998, when he joined the organization as a fleet sales rep. Later that same year he was promoted to district sales manager.
