Mr. Fletcher began his tire industry career in in 1995 with Remington Tire Distributors, where he advanced to president in 1997. He left Remington in 2006 to take over as president and CEO of TriCan.

When is the last time you attended one of the national tire industry trade shows, such as SEMA, ITEC or the North American Tire & Retread Expo?
|I try and take in at least one show a year.||
|I usually attend one every few years.||
|There are so many tire maker and distributor meetings each year, I don’t see a need to attend one of the national shows.||
|I don’t find value in these shows and haven’t been to one in years.||
|I’d like to but I am too busy||
