LEVITTOWN, Pa. (Feb. 28, 2014) — Specialty tire wholesale distributor Gallagher Tire Inc. has added four members to its marketing and sales team.
Peter Row was hired to a newly created role of market development/OTR specialist. Gallagher Tire said Mr. Row last worked for Titan Tire Corp., where he was territory manager for almost six years, overseeing the sales, marketing and distribution of Titan and Goodyear agricultural products across 10 U.S. states and five Canadian provinces.
His new role at Gallagher Tire will be dedicated to new business development and expanding the firm's geographic footprint, the wholesaler said.
Gallagher Tire said other recent additions to its sales team are:
- Michael Picozzi, vice president of sales and marketing (from Carlisle Companies Inc.);
- Chris Klotz, director of business development (from K&W Tire Co. Inc.); and
- Nicholas Tufo, marketing and sales specialist (from Hankook Tire Co. Ltd.).
"Gallagher Tire has a great reputation for service and knowledge of the specialty market," said J.P. Gallagher, president of Gallagher Tire.
"The recent additions to our sales team will continue to set us apart from other companies that handle these niche tires. Our goal to be the No. 1 specialty tire wholesaler can only be achieved with a great team."
Levittown-based Gallagher Tire is a wholesaler focused on specialty tires and related products. Besides Levittown, it has distribution centers in Harrisbury, Pa., and and Liverpool, N.Y., and an office in Charlotte, N.C.
Among the brands it carries are: Titan, Carlisle, Solideal, Galaxy, Alliance, Deestone, CropMax, Gladiator, Prometer and Wanli, along with Nexen tubes and Sendel wheels.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
