As vice president of Goodyear's off-highway operations he's returning to a specialty where he's worked previously during his 16 years with the tire maker.

Most recently he was a vice president in Goodyear’s Americas region, where he was responsible for strategy and business development. In that role, the company says Waldron was instrumental in driving a number of strategies that advanced Goodyear’s competitive position in the market.
“Ryan has a deep understanding of our business, and his proven track record of capitalizing on growth and industry leadership opportunities will serve us well in these important global off-highway segments,” says Steve McClellan, president of Goodyear Americas.
Since joining Goodyear in 2003, Waldron has held a variety of leadership positions across the company, including in its North America supply chain and consumer businesses, as well as its global OTR and off-highway businesses.
“I am excited to return to off-highway and build on the knowledge and experiences I had there earlier in my career,” says Waldron. “These businesses present great growth opportunities for Goodyear, and I look forward to working with the team to build our brand and position in both Aviation and OTR.”

Waldron will report to McClellan.
