AKRON (Dec. 17)—Stephanie Bergeron, Goodyear's senior vice president of corporate financial operations, will retire effective Dec. 31 and her position will be eliminated.
Bergeron plans to pursue opportunities near her home in Detroit, according to a company spokesman. "She decided back in August to retire," he said. "But she agreed to stay on until the end of the year."
The finance department is being restructured, he noted, which will lead to the elimination of the position. Members of the department who reported to Bergeron will report directly to Bob Tieken, executive vice president and chief financial officer, after Dec. 31, the spokesman said.
