AKRON (March 10, 2005) — Goodyear has named John Tseng—a former Eastman Kodak executive—chairman and president of Goodyear Greater China.
Mr. Tseng previously had served as corporate vice president and general manager, digital and film imaging systems for the film company's North Asia operations. Goodyear said he established a successful network of authorized wholesalers and dealers to grow the Kodak business in China.
“His deep understanding of the retail and wholesale structure of China and tremendous knowledge of the Chinese market will prove invaluable for Goodyear as we aggressively pursue additional market opportunities in China,” said Pierre Cohade, Goodyear's president of the Asia-Pacific strategic business unit.
Mike Martens, previously managing director for Goodyear in China, also has been named director of business development for Asia-Pacific. In the new post, he will be responsible for regional business development.
