Goodyear names new treasurer
Peter Rapin has been named vice president and treasurer for the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. He will report to Laura Thompson, executive vice president and chief financial officer.
Rapin will succeed Thomas Kaczynski who has served as Goodyear’s treasurer since January 2014. Kaczynski is leaving the company for another opportunity, effective Aug. 28, 2015.
Rapin most recently served as vice president, treasury and tax for TRW Automotive (now part of ZF Friedrichshafen AG) where he directed the global treasury, tax, insurance, and pension functions.
“We are pleased to welcome Peter to the Goodyear team,” says Thompson. “He is an accomplished finance executive with extensive treasury experience, an in-depth knowledge of the automotive industry and a proven leadership track record in corporate finance.”
Prior to joining TRW in 2003, Rapin spent eight years with Engelhard Corp., a specialty chemical company, where he served as treasurer from 1998 to 2003 and assistant treasurer from 1995 to 1998. He began his career at Westinghouse Electric Corp. in 1981 where he held various senior treasury positions.
