KEYWORDS Hall of Fame TIA

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has opened nominations for the 2022 Tire Industry Hall of Fame.

The hall of fame honors the 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."

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.

Honorees are chosen based on these criteria:

  • Contribution of new ideas promoting the well-being of the tire industry;
  • Service that is exemplary within the tire industry; and
  • 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 Hall of Fame annually recognizes outstanding individuals who have made an indelible mark on the industry through hard work, leadership, innovation, service and business acumen,” says TIA CEO Dick Gust. “If you know of such persons, I encourage you to nominate them for this prestigious award and to join with us as we honor them during the 2022 Tire Industry Honors program this fall.”

Inductions will take place on Oct. 31 during TIA's Tire Industry Honors program that precedes the opening of the 2022 Global Tire Expo/Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.

Nomination forms are available on TIA's website, and must be submitted by July 1.
