TIA Elects Five Board Members

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has elected five members to its board of directors. Four will serve three-year terms. They are …
Debra Hamlin, environmental, health, safety and sustainability director for the commercial division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations in Nashville.
Russell Devens, director of safety and risk management for McCarthy Tire Service of Wilkes-Barre, PA.
Jim Pangle, a consultant with Fountain Tire of South Lethbridge, Alberta.
T.J. Trum, general counsel for Pomp’s Tire Service in Kansas City, KS.

The fifth will serve a one-year term, filling the vacancy created when Mason Hess of the Purcell Tire & Rubber Company became secretary of the board earlier this year. Elected to this one-year term is Dean Schwartz, owner of Lloyd’s Tire & Auto Care in Santa Cruz, CA.

The new directors will take office Nov. 4 at the association’s annual membership meeting in Las Vegas. They will join 13 existing directors on the TIA board.
