Hankook hunts for Hershberger's replacement
Todd Hershberger has left Hankook Tire America Corp. to join the marketing department of Alcoa Wheel Products, based in Cleveland, Ohio.
Hankook Tire America named Hershberger senior vice president of sales and marketing for the United States, a newly created position, in August 2009. He was responsible for directing Hankook's replacement tire sales and marketing efforts, and orchestrating the company's field sales organization, corporate account managers and brand activities.
Prior to joining Hankook, Hershberger worked for Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. as director of Goodyear's Dunlop brand.
Hankook, based in Wayne, N.J., notified its dealers of Hershberger's departure on Friday, Feb. 4. The company has yet to name a replacement.
