Kramer also led a transformation of the business and guided it through the Covid-19 pandemic, and saw through the company’s acquisition of Cooper Tire in 2021.

“On behalf of our entire board, I extend deep gratitude to Rich for his outstanding leadership and innumerable contributions to Goodyear over the course of his distinguished career. He successfully navigated Goodyear through a number of challenging cycles, including the aftermath of the financial crisis and the global pandemic. Throughout his tenure, Rich has led the Company with a clear long-term vision that positioned Goodyear as a leader at the forefront of the industry, with unmatched competitive advantages,” said Laurette T. Koellner, independent lead director of Goodyear’s board.
