AKRON (Aug. 22)—John C. Polhemus, president of Goodyear's North American Tire segment, will assume direct responsibility for the unit´s consumer tire business, the Akron tire maker announced Aug. 22. The change is intended to flatten the consumer organization, improve customer focus by top management and speed the decision-making process, the company said. James M. Vogel, vice president of the consumer business, will now report directly to Robert Keegan, Goodyear president and chief operating officer, to focus on revenue enhancement opportunities with an emphasis on top-line growth across all regions, the firm said.
