Mr. BeVier has 24 years of tire industry experience in various roles in the retail, commercial and OTR segments. He has introduced programs around proper industry recommended practices, while identifying approved procedures to improve efficiencies and lower overall costs. He said he feels his ability to work with so many individuals in the industry has given him a unique understanding of customer issues, concerns and expectations, and he welcomes the opportunity to provide his experience to the TIA board.
Mr. Glidden began his career in the tire service truck industry in 1986. For the past 30 years, he has traveled extensively throughout North America selling, demonstrating, delivering and putting tire trucks into service. His experience with independent tire dealers has given him a good understanding of the industry and its challenges, including safety considerations and lack of formal training. He hopes to see TIA training classes become a more prevalent industry standard and a requirement for all tire service technicians.
