Patrick McLaughlin, longtime president of SURE Tire Co., has announced he will retire.
With his departure, however, comes a new beginning. Lou Fontana, a 20-year veteran of Hercules Tire & Rubber Co., will take over for McLaughlin.
"We are pleased to welcome Lou to SURE Tire," says Chairman John Casey. "His valued experience and enthusiasm will lead our SURE Tire group to new heights."
