AKRON, Ohio, — Mark Pillow has been named director of business solutions for Goodyear’s commercial tire systems division.
In his new role, Pillow will oversee Goodyear’s business solutions portfolio, including the company’s fleetHQ program, on-highway operations, and retreaded tire business. He will report directly to Joe Copeland, vice-president of Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems.
A 25-year Goodyear veteran, Pillow most recently served as director of commercial systems and off-highway tires for Goodyear Canada, a role he assumed in 2007. Prior to that position, he served as general manager of national accounts, North America, and before that, director of Goodyear farm tires. He also has held positions in engineering, consumer tire sales and marketing, and other areas of Goodyear’s business.
“Mark is an outstanding leader with extensive management experience, and will play a key role in expanding our comprehensive offering of business solutions,” said Copeland. “Having previously served as the leader of our national account business, he understands how fleets operate, the challenges they face, and the importance of Goodyear’s ability to provide fleet customers with value-added services that will help them reduce their operating costs. This knowledge, coupled with the experience Mark accumulated as the head of Goodyear’s Canadian commercial tire business, will prove invaluable as we continue to expand the portfolio of business solutions that we offer to our commercial customers.”
The following Goodyear executives will report directly to Pillow: Bruce Woodruff, director of business solutions marketing; Roy Sutfin, vice-president of fleetHQ; Clint Schrock, director of on-highway operations; and Jay Hofner, general manager, retreading.
“I look forward to continuing our focus on providing a total solutions package to our customers, including industry-leading tire technology, as well as value-added services that will help fleets, owner-operators, and other end users run their businesses more efficiently and profitably,” said Pillow.
