AKRON (Aug. 28)—Stephen McClellan, president and chief operating officer of the company's Wingfoot Commercial Systems L.L.C. unit since 2001, will replace Ted Fick as vice president of Goodyear's North American Tire commercial business. Fick, who joined Goodyear in December 2001 from Hino Diesel Truck Inc., is leaving to pursue other interests, Goodyear said. A spokesman said the move was not part of a management restructuring in the division. "Ted decided to move on," he said. McClellan, 38, joined Goodyear as a trainee in January 1988. After serving the company in various finance positions, he was named general business manager for the retail organization in January 1999. He then moved to the Allied Tire business as general manager, followed by time as general business manager in the southern region before his assignment at Fort Smith, Ark.-based Wingfoot in 2001.
