Goodyear hires Roulett

Feb. 26, 2003

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has hired Don Roulett as global marketing manager for aviation tires. He replaced Jim Pickering, who retired.

Roulett reports to Alex Dumm, general manager of Goodyear global aviation tires.

Roulett joins Goodyear after 13 years with Honeywell/Allied Signal Aircraft Landing Systems, where he was program/business manager for Boeing and Airbus original equipment projects and deputy general director of a Honeywell joint venture within the Russian Federation.

He worked for Goodyear Aerospace in Akron from 1979 to 1982 as a development engineer. From 1982 to 1989, he was with the Westinghouse Plant Apparatus Division as a senior stress analyst on nuclear reactors for the U.S. Navy.

"Don's considerable experience in global aircraft development will be a considerable asset as we continue our penetration of this market, especially overseas," says Dumm.
