The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is seeking nominations for its 2021 Tire Industry Hall of Fame class. Deadline for nominations is July 2, 2021.

"The Hall of Fame recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of individuals who have contributed greatly to the growth and/or development of the tire industry or have demonstrated high standards, ideals and leadership in the management of their businesses in the tire community," say TIA officials.

"The award is open to all individuals in the tire industry, including manufacturers, inventors, publishers, equipment suppliers, tire association executives, tire dealers, tire and rubber recyclers and retreaders. Hall of Fame membership may be awarded posthumously."

Inductees are chosen based on the following criteria:

  • Contribution of new ideas promoting the well-being of the tire industry;
  • Service that is exemplary within the tire industry, and:
  • The respect of their peers

Candidates’ civic, cultural, educational or charitable endeavors will be considered, but are not a primary consideration as attributes for selection.

“The tire industry is filled with individuals who, through hard work, creativity, leadership, innovation, service and business acumen, have made a mark,” says TIA CEO Roy Littlefield.

“The Hall of Fame honors the best of them and celebrates their lasting contributions. We look forward to recognizing the 2021 inductees.”
