Titan Gives President Reitz Another Title — CEO

Posted on December 12, 2016

The board of directors of Titan International Inc. has promoted its president, Paul Reitz, to CEO and president effective Jan. 1, 2017.

Reitz, 44, joined the company in July 2010 as chief financial officer and was promoted to president in February 2014. He will take the title of CEO from Maurice Taylor, who will continue to serve as Titan's chairman.

Taylor says, "This has been a six year process. Six years ago we hired a search firm to find a wheel president, a tire president and a CFO. When it was time to select the president of Titan, after approximately four years, the board decided that they could once again retain a search firm or choose one of these three candidates. They determined the right candidate was Paul Reitz, who was made president two years ago and has now earned the right to become both CEO and President. Paul has demonstrated that he is not only intelligent but he knows how to build and lead a strong team.

"I look forward to advising him on various engineering products and helping out with new wheel operations in Russia and Brazil. I will continue visiting our customers and promoting the benefits of our LSW products, along with making an appearance at a few investor conferences."

Prior to joining Titan, Reitz was the chief accounting officer for Carmike Cinemas based in Columbus, Ga. He has also held leadership positions with McLeodUSA Publishing, Yellow Book USA Inc., and Deloitte and Touche LLP. He has a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Iowa and a bachelor's degree in business administration from Northwood University. He is married with two children.
