8 Year veteran of the United States Army, exiting the service as a Captain in the Corps of Engineers, and 24 years in the tire industry in progressive leadership roles. 26 of my 32 years of work history have been in leadership roles. I have a BA in Engineering Management from Park University. Upon exiting active-duty military as an officer I was hired by Michelin NA as an Industrial Engineer. After two years, I went into a variety of operational roles as well as serving as an Industrial Engineering Manager in two Michelin factories. I left Michelin after 18 years to take on a role as Plant Manager at Kumho tire. I left Kumho Tire in 2020 when I hired on with Toyo Tires in White Georgia as the General Manager of the Facility. I was promoted to President and COO of Toyo Tires N.A. Manufacturing Inc. in July 2022. I am married with two adult children who reside outside of the state of Georgia. My wife and I plan to retire and grow old in Bartow County!
