CHARLOTTE, N.C. (June 13, 2005) — Continental Tire North America Inc. has named former Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. executive Carl Casalbore director of passenger and light truck dealer sales for the U.S. and Canada.
In the post, Mr. Casalbore will be responsible for the development and management of the dealer sales channel for Conti's passenger and light truck replacement tire business.
Just last week Conti announced that Jim Seidel, former director of dealer sales, was leaving the company to pursue other interests. He had joined Conti in early 2004.
Mr. Casalbore, former vice president of marketing and retail sales for Cooper, left the Findlay, Ohio-based tire maker effective April 11. He had worked at Cooper since 1999 after 20 years with Pirelli Tire North America Inc.
