LEAVITTSBURG, Ohio (March 22, 2005) — Charles Wright, president and CEO of Denman Tire Corp., announced he will retire when his replacement is hired.
Mr. Wright joined Denman in 1993 at his current positions. He has worked in the tire industry for 43 years, including as general manager of Pirelli-Armstrong Tire Corp.'s Nashville, Tenn., operation before starting at Denman. In 1998 he was named Rubber Industry Executive of the Year by Rubber & Plastics News, a sister publication of Tire Business.
“It's a difficult decision to leave a great company like Denman Tire Corp., and I would like to thank the management team, all employees and our wonderful customers for a great 12 years,” Mr. Wright said. “But I believe the time is right for me to move on and for someone else to take the reins of the organization.”
The search for Mr. Wright's successor is underway, the Leavittsburg-based company said.
