Ginger Jones, senior vice president and chief financial officer of Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. is retiring in 2018.
A search for her replacement is underway, and Jones will remain in her position until a successor is named and the transition complete.
Jones joined Cooper in 2014, and she plans to focus on serving on public company boards of directors in her retirement.
“Ginger has made important contributions to Cooper, including playing a key role in the development of our long-term strategy and business priorities,” says CEO and president Brad Hughes. “While she is moving to another stage in her career, we are grateful that Ginger is fully committed to helping us deliver on our plans and assuring a smooth transition. We are pleased that she and her family plan to remain in the Findlay community, and we thank Ginger for the critical role she has played and will continue to play over the coming months.”
Jones has served on the board of directors for Libbey Inc. since 2013, and she was recently appointed to the board of Tronox Ltd., a mining and chemicals company.
Jones says, “I look forward to my next chapter, but will remain fully engaged at Cooper throughout the search and transition process. There is a strong, talented team in place at Cooper and I have every confidence in their ability to execute the exciting plans we have underway to grow the business.”
