DALLAS — Tread rubber supplier Pre-Q Galgo Corp. has hired industry veteran Ron Elliott to be its marketing manager for the U.S. and Canada.
In his role, Mr. Elliott — marketing manager for Marangoni Tread North America from 2013 to mid-2020 — will be responsible for implementing Pre-Q Galgo's long-term growth strategy for North America as well as driving new business development and special projects.
"The decision to hire Ron was a strategic and deliberate move to become more aggressive in the United States and Canada," Pre-Q Galgo Vice President Eduardo Nava said.
"Ron has a sincere desire to make our industry better that is only shadowed by his high degree of professionalism, energy, and integrity."
Mr. Elliott worked for Marangoni for nearly seven years before his job was eliminated in mid-2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. During his time with Marangoni, Mr. Elliott was active in industrywide efforts to promote retreading.
Prior to joining Marangoni, Mr. Elliott compiled a dozen years of sales and marketing experience across diverse industries.
