Billy Granatstein, left, president of La Cie Canada Tire Inc. in Montreal, Quebec, walked away from the International Tire Expo in Las Vegas $20,000 richer. He won the prize not at the gaming tables, but by attending the Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.-sponsored "Breakfast with the President," where his name was drawn from a barrel containing the names of the 480 attendees. John Fahl, executive vice president of Cooper, presented Mr. Granatstein the check on behalf of the company. Cooper annually sponsors the breakfast gathering, which honors the incoming and outgoing presidents of TANA.
