TBC Focuses on Supply Chain Logistics With New Appointments

April 3, 2018

TBC Corp. has added to its supply chain and logistics leadership team with two appointments who bring experience from American Tire Distributors Inc., (ATD) CVS Health and Walmart Inc.

John Flowers was named vice president of supply chain optimization and performance and David Rodriguez was named vice president of supply chain planning.

Flowers joins TBC from ATD where he worked as senior vice president of operations for eight years and vice president of operations for eight years. At ATD he developed and implemented systems, processes and facilities that enabled systemic growth, facilitated alternate channel opportunities and permitted aggressive expansion through acquisition. Prior to his tenure with ATD, John held roles in both operations and logistics at AmeriServe Distribution Services, Phillip Morris/Kraft General Foods and Interstate Motor Freight.

Rodriguez joins TBC after working on supply chain for CVS for the past seven years. Prior to CVS, he worked for Walmart with a focus on supply chain, merchandising and retail operations. 

In January TBC named Sean O’Laughlin vice president of distribution for the company.

“The addition of team members with an extensive supply chain and logistics background will be extremely beneficial to the team as we support initiatives that impact all stakeholders and areas of our business,” says Scott Clark, senior vice president of supply chain and logistics, who joined the team from Jo-Ann Stores LLC in September 2017.

“For the past 62 years, TBC has been a tire company ahead of the curve. We’ve been able to maintain our industry leading position, and plan to continue doing so, through the leadership of 10,000-plus associates led by team leaders with extensive industry expertise, operational knowledge and a commitment to leading with excellence,” says Erik Olsen, CEO and president of TBC Corp. “The growth of the leadership on the supply chain and logistics team is a testament to the expansion opportunities ahead for TBC and we’re confident we have the right people in place to lead them.”
