Former Cooper President Chris Ball Joins Masonite
Chris Ball, most recently president of Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.'s Americas division, has joined Masonite International Corp. as president of the company's global residential business.
Ball - who was interviewed last year by MTD - led Cooper's North American, Latin America and global commercial truck tire business units.
Prior to joining Cooper, he served Whirlpool Corp. in various capacities.
Masonite is a leading global designer, manufacturer, marketer and distributor of interior and exterior doors for new construction.
“Chris has an extensive background leading global teams to drive growth,” says Howard Heckes, Masonite's president and CEO.
“I believe his leadership style, knowledge, and relevant experience will be strong assets in helping us achieve our growth initiatives."
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. acquired Cooper this past June.
