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."
