Her title was "acting CFO" up to May 18, 2017, the effective date of her new appointment. Mathis had served as acting CFO since September 2016.

She is responsible for overseeing all strategic aspects of finance, accounting and financial shared services, as well as mergers and acquisitions, financial reporting, cash flow and debt management.

“Amanda is an exceptionally talented financial executive and trusted adviser to many throughout the Bridgestone organization,” says Bill Thompson, chief operating officer, Bridgestone Americas.

“She has done a tremendous job since assuming the acting CFO role late last year. Her familiarity and expertise of our financial organization coupled with her strong leadership make her an excellent fit for this position.”

Mathis joined Bridgestone Americas as controller for the consumer tire division in 2012. She was later promoted to vice president, finance for Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations (BATO) North America and concurrently named acting CFO in September 2016.

Prior to joining Bridgestone, Mathis served in a number of leadership roles for YUM! Brands, including CFO for the Long John Silver’s and A&W Restaurants divisions. She has also held roles at Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) Capital Markets and Morgan Keegan.

Mathis was part of the leadership team put in place following Gary Garfield’s retirement as executive chairman, CEO, and president of Bridgestone Americas at the end of 2016. She was named acting CFO to replace Thompson, who had been CFO since 2014.
