Goodyear transfers Molinari to the United Kingdom
Marco Molinari, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.'s vice president of global marketing projects, has been appointed group managing director of Goodyear Dunlop Tires Europe's United Kingdom operations.
Molinari, previously at Goodyear's corporate headquarters in Akron, Ohio, will be based in Birmingham, England.
In other Dunlop European executive shuffles, Sylvain Valensi has been named group managing director for French operations and Gerd Gruenenwald has been appointed managing director of German operations.
"This move will allow us to drive the consolidation of the Goodyear Dunlop joint venture while at the same time ensuring a clear separation of the brands in order to optimize market coverage," says Michael Roney, president of Goodyear Dunlop Tires Europe.
