AKRON, Ohio --

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has named company veteran Stephen McClellan (upper left) as President of its North American tire business unit. McClellan, 45, replaces
Curt Andersson (upper right), who plans to pursue other professional interests, the Akron, Ohio, tire company said. McClellan joined Goodyear in 1988 and was named to his current position as president of Goodyear's North American consumer tire business in 2008. He will continue to lead that business until a replacement is named, Goodyear said. In early trading, Goodyear shares fell $1.26, or 9.5 percent, to $12.08.

Editorial : This writer has it on the QT that, Mr. Andersson was opposed to Closing Union City Tennessee Plant. Trouble in Akron ? Ya Think ? Goodluck Mr. Andersson !
