March 8, 2023

China Manufacturers Alliance LLC (CMA) and Double Coin have named Tim Kelly to the role of original equipment and national fleet manager. Kelly spent more than three decades working for Bridgestone Americas Inc., including the last 22 in the commercial truck tire business.

Kelly will be responsible for Double Coin truck tire sales into the OE and fleet channels in North America.

He started his tire career in 1988 in the consumer tire business for Bridgestone and Firestone brands, and migrated to the commercial truck tire business at Bridgestone in 2000, retiring in 2022 as national fleet manager.

“Tim’s skillset and experience will successfully enhance our operations and contribute to our goals for growth and customer satisfaction,” says Aaron Murphy, Double Coin’s senior vice president.  “He has a deep understanding of the commercial segment of the tire business and its customer needs.”

Kelly says, “I am excited to join the Double Coin team.  My commercial tire industry experience and knowledge will be a benefit in expanding the Double Coin Truck Tire brand to new and existing customers in the Original Equipment and National Account channels."
