Joe Burke is the new vice president of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.'s North America commercial tire business.
He replaces Dave Beasley, "who decided to retire after nearly 40 years with Goodyear," according to a statement from the Akron, Ohio-based tiremaker.
Burke joined Goodyear in 2015 and most recently served as general manager of the company's aviation tire business.
Prior to joining Goodyear, he held positions at OEConnection, Lincare Holdings and Aerotek.
“Joe is a proven leader and has delivered strong results in both our Global Aviation and North America commercial businesses,” says Steve McClellan, president of Goodyear Americas.
“He has a deep knowledge of the commercial tire and service industry, having previously led commercial sales and original equipment account teams and being instrumental in bringing Goodyear’s fleet solutions to the market.”
