OK Tire Augments Senior Leadership

Vancouver-based OK Tire Stores has made two additions to its senior leadership team: Dwayne Sawyer as director – commercial business group and Patrick O’Hara as national director – merchandising.

Reporting to COO Michael Rutherford, Sawyer is responsible for leading OK Tire’s business relating to supply chain management. He most recently was director of sales for Kumho Tire Canada. Sawyer’s background also includes time as a regional sales manager and product marketing manager for commercial products at Giti Tire.

O’Hara, who also reports to Rutherford, is responsible for the development and growth of OK Tire’s e-commerce and other non-tire related products. He had been the North American vice president of business development, marketing and public relations for Thibert.

OK Tire is billed as one of the largest independent tire and auto service retailers in Canada, with more than 300 independently owned and operated locations across the country.
