AKRON (Nov. 14, 2003) — Darren Wells, vice president and treasurer of Goodyear, was named one of the nation's top finance executives under age 40 by Treasury & Risk Management magazine.
Goodyear said Mr. Wells, 37, is responsible for the company's financial risk management, treasury policy and relationships with the banking community. He was a key player in the tire maker's efforts earlier this year to renegotiate its credit agreements.
The magazine's November issue recognized Mr. Wells among a group of executives called “standouts who will be carving out the future of finance,” Goodyear said. Mr. Wells joined Goodyear in August 2002 after serving as assistant treasurer of automotive supplier Visteon Corp. for two years.
