Stan Chandgie Will Lead Consumer Sales for Yokohama

March 8, 2019

Yokohama Tire Corp. has hired Stan Chandgie as vice president of consumer sales. He replaces Larry Kull, who was named vice president of sales and business operations. Chandgie comes to Yokohama from Exide Technologies, where he served as vice president of sales and business transformation. Prior to his work for the battery manufacturer, Chandgie spent 16 years working for Michelin North America Inc. in marketing and sales positions both internationally and in the U.S. During his time at Michelin he was credited with the development and launch of multiple product and service offers in the commercial and off-the-road tire sectors.

“Stan Chandgie brings a wealth of sales and marketing strategy expertise to Yokohama, particularly in the tire industry,” says Jeff Barna, president of Yokohama. “He’s a dynamic senior executive with 20-plus years of global progressive experience in the manufacturing and distribution sectors, which is why he’s perfectly suited to lead our consumer sales division.”

“Yokohama Tire is a class organization and I’m honored to be part of the team,” says Chandgie. “It’s great to be back in the tire industry with such a strong, strategic company.”
