FRANKLIN, Tenn. (Aug. 9, 2016) — Triangle Tire USA L.L.C., a wholly owned subsidiary of China's Triangle Tyre Co. Ltd., has hired Christopher Kennedy to be vice president of finance and operations.
In his new role, Mr. Kennedy will be responsible for financial reporting and analysis, financial controls, banking relationships, warehouse operations, logistics and inventory control, according to Triangle.
He brings 16 years of tire industry experience to his new position, having previously worked for Bridgestone Americas as finance director of the off-road tire sales division and as controller for that company's Firestone Industrial Products-Netherlands unit.
Mr. Kennedy most recently was controller for Resource Label Group, a Franklin, Tenn.-based printing company with offices throughout North America.
“Chris helps us round out our key management group and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to two important functions — finance and operations,” said Triangle Tire USA CEO Manny Cicero.
“It is rare for someone to be proficient in both finance and operations, so we feel very fortunate to have Chris join our growing team.”
