Goodyear names McClellan to head NA tire unit.

Goodyear Tire & Rubber promoted from within when it named Stephen R. McClellan president of the company's North American Tire business unit. McClellan will succeed Curt Andersson, who plans to pursue other professional interests. McClellan will continue to be responsible for North American Tire's consumer tire business until a successor is named.

"Steve brings strong leadership and a proven track record of delivering results," said Richard J. Kramer, Goodyear's chairman, president and CEO. "Steve's career of more than 20 years at Goodyear has included progressively larger leadership positions within North American Tire."

Kramer acknowledged Andersson's contributions to Goodyear's success in its North American business. "During Curt's tenure, we have continued our progress toward returning North American Tire to sustainable profitability. We appreciate his efforts and thank him for his work at Goodyear."

McClellan, 45, has spent his entire career at Goodyear since joining the company in 1988. Most of his experience has been in a variety of management roles within the consumer tire business. In December 2001, he moved into the commercial tire business, serving as president of Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems, Goodyear's national network of commercial tire sales, re-treading and service. He was promoted to vice president, Commercial Tire Systems, in September 2003. He has been the president of Goodyear's North American consumer tire business since August 2008.
