Gregory A. Fritz Apointed Goodyear Vice President, Investor Relations

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company announced today that it has appointed Gregory A. Fritz as vice president, investor relations. The executive will reports to Darren R. Wells, executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Fritz replaces Patrick R. Stobb, who will hold a senior finance position in Goodyear’s North American Tire business when Fritz takes over. Stobb had held his position since 2008.

Fritz’s last position was assistant treasurer and senior director, investor relations for Whirlpool Corporation. Before joining Whirlpool back in 2007, the executive held the director of corporate finance and business planning and analysis position at Stoneridge Inc. Prior to that, he served as senior research analyst for Midwest Research between 2000 and 2002, as well as a research associate at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette from 1997 to 2000, with the position offering him a wide view of the automotive industry.

It is now time to talk about Fritz's education: he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in finance from Oakland University in 1997, as well as a Master of Bussiness Administration degree from the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business in 2006.

Here’s what the company has to say about itself: “Goodyear is one of the world's largest tire companies.  It employs approximately 72,000 people and manufactures its products in 55 facilities in 22 countries around the world.  Its two Innovation Centers in Akron, Ohio and Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg strive to develop state-of-the-art products and services that set the technology and performance standard for the industry.
