Luke also praised Hawk for his period of leadership.

“We are also deeply grateful to Jim Hawk ... who oversaw the major rebranding of our historic organization as the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association, and has championed our industry’s business objectives and helped us navigate important policy issues in an often challenging environment.”

McClellan says he's excited to lead the board and represent "a $148 billion industry that helps power the U.S. economy. I look forward to working with USTMA and its board to ensure we have a strong voice on policy issues affecting our member companies and our nearly 100,000 employees."
