On Oct. 16 the graduates of this year's program were treated to a catered lunch in Randolph, Mass., plus messages to encourage them from the company's leaders, including Mike Reilly, director of human resources, Joe Zaccheo, chief operating officer, and Bob Sullivan, company president.

The program's recent graduates include Payroll Manager Cortney Barkdoll, Customer Experience Manager Tiffany Sheehan, and Waltham Retail Manager Dan Henning.

The course expands and enhances the skillsets of emerging leaders in the company. Selected participants attend classes over the span of several months and are tested on their new skills with projects and other assignments.

“Our employees are our most valued asset,” says Joe Zaccheo, chief operating officer. “The LDP program helps them further the leadership skills they need in order to exceed in an extremely competitive industry.”

The Leadership Development Program is among the company's online and classroom training opportunities available through Sullivan Tire University. Those efforts, including the company’s promise to cover the cost of technical certification exams, is a key driver for employee retention, the company says. More than 25% of Sullivan Tire employees have been with the company at least 10 years.

Sullivan Tire, dba Sullivan Tire and Auto Service, operates 73 retail locations; 15 commercial truck centers; 13 wholesale, three retread plants; two LiftWorks facilities; and two distribution centers. The company has more than 1,200 employees working in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Maine. For more information, visit www.sullivantire.com.
