Jim Crandall Brings Experience to TBC Brands Role

Posted on October 24, 2016

Jim Crandall has spent 27 years in the tire industry, with no end in sight. As the new sales manager of the Southeast Region for TBC Brands, he will oversee a number of truck tire brands in that area.

"Jim is a valuable addition to the organization, as his experience on both the manufacturer and dealer side of the business is extensive," says Aaron Murphy, vice president of commercial truck tire sales.

"His 20 years of working with fleets from a dealer perspective will contribute widely to servicing our TBC Brands customers and prospect. Jim’s primary responsibility is managing and growing sales of Sumitomo, Sailun and other TBR products in the Southeast Region of the U.S."

Crandall began his career at the Dunlop Tire and Rubber Co., where he eventually managed all the sales for the Remington brand. He comes to TBC from MFR Best One Fleet Service and Brahler’s Truckers Supply Co. in St. Louis, where he held several positions over the last 20 years spanning sales and management roles.

TBC Brands LLC, a subsidiary of TBC Corp., is one of the largest distributors of private brand tires in North America. For more information, visit
