AKRON (Feb. 27, 2003)—Don Roulett was named Goodyear's global marketing manager for aviation tires, the Akron-based tire maker said.
Mr. Roulett replaces Jim Pickering, who retired. Mr. Pickering joined Goodyear in 1966, serving in a number of positions before joining the aviation tire group in 1994.
Previously, Mr. Roulett had worked for Honeywell/Allied Signal Aircraft Landing Systems for 13 years. In that capacity, he served as program/business manager for Boeing and Airbus OEM projects and deputy general director of a Honeywell joint venture within the Russian Federation. He also had worked for Goodyear Aerospace from 1979 to 1982 as a development engineer. From 1982 to 1989, Mr. Roulett worked for Westinghouse Plant Apparatus Division.
“Don's considerable experience in global aircraft development will be a considerable asset as we continue our penetration of this market, especially overseas,” said Alex Dumm, general manager of Goodyear's global aviation tires.
