Brian Maciak Will Lead Big O Tires
Brian Maciak has been promoted to president and chief operating officer of Big O Tires LLC and will replace Jim Bull, who is retiring on July 1 after 17 years with the subsidiary of TBC Corp.
Bull, vice president and general manager of Big O Tires, has led the business to "record sales and record profitability," TBC said. "He has helped expand the brand’s geographic footprint and implemented strategic initiatives to grow and support the organization."
“It has been both my honor and privilege to be a member of the Big O Tires and TBC family for the last 17 years,” says Bull. “Over the years, I have been able to play a small part in helping our existing and new Big O franchisees achieve their dreams of successfully owning a small business. Helping franchisees achieve their personal and professional goals has provided me some of the most rewarding and fulfilling moments that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.”
Maciak is currently executive vice president, general counsel and chief compliance officer, and also a member of TBC’s management council. He joined TBC in April 2009 as vice president of general counsel. In 2012, he was promoted to senior vice president with management responsibilities for several departments, including human resources, risk management, safety, asset protection, and internal audit. In 2018, he took on the additional responsibility for compliance as chief compliance officer, and in 2020 he was promoted to executive vice president before becoming a member of the four-member management council in 2021.
Earlier this year, he assumed shared oversight of the Tire Automotive Group, which consists of TBC’s business-to-consumer locations (Big O Tires, Midas, Tire Kingdom and NTB).
Maciak says he's committed to building strong relationships with Big O franchisees and helping them reach their full potential.
“Big O is poised for growth driven by the entrepreneurial spirit, passion, and commitment of its franchisees,” says Maciak. “I am looking forward to having the opportunity to build upon the solid foundation that has led Big O to much success throughout the company’s 60-year history.”
There are more than 460 Big O Tires locations in the U.S.
