Goodyear elects Michael Morell to board

Posted on January 9, 2014

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. announced that Michael Morell, retired deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency, has been elected to the board of directors.

Morell served as deputy director of the CIA from May 2010 to August 2013. A career officer, he held a variety of senior leadership positions with the agency, including serving as acting director twice, director of intelligence and executive director. He also served as a deputy director at the National Counterterrorism Center.

“We are pleased to have Michael Morell join the Goodyear board of directors,” says Goodyear Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard Kramer. “He brings to our board outstanding leadership skills and a global perspective gained during the course of three decades of distinguished service to the United States.”

Morell joined the CIA in 1980 as an analyst covering international energy issues. Morell later worked on East Asia for 14 years, holding a number of jobs in analysis and in management before his selection in 1999 as director of Asian Pacific and Latin American analysis.

Morell, 55, served on President Barack Obama’s Review Group on Intelligence and Telecommunications. He is a senior fellow at Harvard University’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, a counselor at Beacon Global Strategies, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

The election of Morell brings the size of Goodyear’s board to 13 members.
