Goodyear promotes Jambon and Cavanaugh
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has promoted two associates to global positions.
Pierre Jambon was named vice president of the company's off-highway business, replacing John Cavanaugh. In his new role, Jambon will run Goodyear's global aviation and off-the-road businesses as well as its North American racing and motorcycle/ATV businesses.
He will report to Curt Andersson, president of the North American Tire business unit.
In a related move, Goodyear named Cavanaugh vice president of finance for global procurement. In that role, he will report to Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer Mark Purtilar and Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Darren Wells.
Since October 2006, Jambon, 50, served as general manager, global aviation, overseeing the development, manufacture and marketing of aviation tires for original equipment, replacement and military applications. Goodyear says Jambon's successor will be announced at a later date.
Cavanaugh, 39, has a broad base of experience both inside and outside Goodyear. He came to the company in July 2003 as director of financial strategy and served in that role for seven months before being named assistant treasurer. He assumed the duties of vice president, off-highway operations in September 2008.
Prior to joining Goodyear, Cavanaugh worked in various financial capacities at Visteon Corp. and Kmart Corp.
