CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Aug. 13, 2015) — American Tire Distributors Holdings Inc. (ATD) President and CEO William E. (“Bill”) Berry plans to retire and will turn over the reigns to one of the nation's largest tire distributors once his successor has been appointed.
Upon his retirement, Mr. Berry will transition into an advisor role for the company. ATD said both internal and external candidates will be considered to replace Mr. Berry.
“It has been my privilege to lead ATD through a period of substantial growth and to build a company that is ready to shape the future of our industry,” Mr. Berry said. “While I am certainly proud of the growth we have achieved, my greatest accomplishment has been assembling a team that I believe is undoubtedly the best of any distributor in any industry.
“ATD colleagues focus each and every day on delivering the ATD advantage to our customers and that focus and work ethic have enabled us to become the company we are today.”
