Change of top management in GoodYear

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company today announced that Daniel L. Smytka has been named president of the company’s Asia Pacific business.  Smytka, a seasoned business professional with a career of more than 25 years of leadership experience, takes the role after successfully running Goodyear's Asia consumer business and subsequently leading the relocation and expansion of the company’s factory in China.  He will succeed Pierre Cohade, who has decided to leave Goodyear and move to a new opportunity that will be announced at a later date. 

Kramer expressed appreciation for Cohade’s contributions to Goodyear’s growth in Asia.  “Success in the Asia Pacific region, especially in China, is critical to reaching our long-term goals.  During Pierre’s seven years, we have made significant progress in the region and are well-positioned for further growth.  We appreciate Pierre’s leadership and thank him for his many contributions at Goodyear.”  Cohade will remain with the company through the end of the year to assist with the transition.

Smytka, 49, joined Goodyear in 2008 as vice president of the consumer tire business in the company’s Asia Pacific region.  Previously, his career spanned nearly 20 years of progressively larger operational, consumer and commercial business leadership roles with General Electric.  While at GE, Smytka spent three years in China, including serving as president of GE's consumer and industrial business for the Asia Pacific region.  Smytka worked at United Technologies Corporation immediately prior to joining Goodyear.
