Goodyear hires Stobb as director of investor relations
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has announced that Patrick Stobb has joined the company as director of investor relations.
Stobb will report to Darren Wells, Goodyear's senior vice president of finance and strategy, and will be located at the company's headquarters in Akron.
"Pat is an experienced finance and investor relations professional and has a solid reputation with analysts and investors," says Wells. "We are confident in Pat's ability to help the investment community understand the company's business and strategies and we are pleased to have him on the Goodyear team."
Prior to joining Goodyear, Stobb was director of investor relations for TRW Automotive Holdings Inc. since 2003. He also held a variety of investor relations and finance positions with the Visteon Corp. from 2000 to 2003 and the Ford Motor Co. from 1997 to 2000.
Stobb takes over the leadership of the investor relations function from Greg Dooley, who has been appointed treasurer for Goodyear's Latin American operations. Dooley has had responsibility for the company's investor relations since 2006.
"Greg has done an outstanding job building relationships with our shareholders and the investment community," says Wells. "I have no doubt that he will be successful in his new role in Latin America."
