financial positions in Europe over the past seven years.  His
most recent assignment was Finance Director of Goodyear’s CSEE (Central

Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovenia and the
countries of the former Yugoslav Republic. He has held this position

operation in different countries including a manufacturing plant,
places him in an excellent position to lead our financial operations in
South Africa which include a mixture of manufacturing, retail and
export operations,” said Jean-Jacques Wiroth, Managing Director of
Tyre and Rubber Holdings
