Barron has spent the last 26 years working for the 17-store operation, which dba Chabill's Tire and Auto Service. She most recently served as vice president of operations and sales for the business which serves southern Louisiana.

“I plan to continue the tradition of high quality customer service that has been established under my father’s leadership,” says Barron. “With the ongoing support of the Chabill’s leadership team, we will continue to offer high quality products and superior technical services. We will also continue to look at expansion opportunities.”

Her father will retire 50 years after founding Chabill's with Billy Parker. In 1968 BFGoodrich approached the two men about selling tires in Morgan City, La. They combined their first names into the store name. Over the next five decades the business has grown to 17 stores and more than 130 employees. The company has expanded its tire brand offerings along with the automotive services it offers consumers.

On the 2018 edition of the Modern Tire Dealer 100, Chabill's was tied for No. 70 of the largest independent tire dealers in the U.S.
