Toyo Names Sales Directors and Appoints a Corporate Training Manager

July 18, 2018

Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. has appointed two new sales directors. Rob Lovi is joining the company and will direct national strategic accounts, while Mike Graber has been promoted to lead commercial tire sales. Lovi spent the last 10 years as vice president of sales and marketing for Vector Fleet Management LLC, and earlier spent 14 years at Michelin North America Inc.

Lovi joins Sam Felberbaum, director of sales for the west, and Mike Snyder, director of sales for the east.  All report to Randy Gaetz, senior vice president of sales for Toyo.

Graber has been promoted to director of sales for commercial tires. He most recently served as senior product manager for commercial truck tires and prior to that was a member of the Toyo commercial sales team. Graber is replacing Bill Barfield in that role. Barfield has been named to a new position, corporate training manager, to support a growing field staff and network of commercial tire dealers. Both Barfield and Graber also report to Gaetz.

“The Toyo Tires brand continues to grow in the U.S. and we are pleased to announce these new positions within our field sales organization,” says Gaetz.  “We are better positioned to serve our dealers and to support the sales of premium Toyo Tires products.”
