Tech announces management succession plan
Tire repair manufacturer Tech International has established a management succession plan in response to the unexpected death of its president and CEO Pauline Chambers-Yost in September.
Chambers-Yost's daughter, Cheryl Poulton, assumed the Johnstown, Ohio-based company's president position and also will serve as its secretary. Her duties include developing and supervising Tech's business plans and overseeing its operations.
Michael R. Chambers has been appointed Tech's chairman and executive vice president.
Gary Chambers Jr., who also serves as president and CEO of Tech subsidiary Cham-Cor Industries, has been named Tech's assistant secretary and was elected to the firm's board of directors.
In other moves, Jerry Besanceney has been named senior vice president of the Tech Group of Companies and Dan Layne has been appointed director of operations, North America.
Tech International is the largest manufacturer of tire repair and related materials in North America and does business in more than 100 countries with some 5,000 products.
