GREENBACK, Tenn. (Nov. 2, 2009)—Ian Smith, former president of Wyko Inc., is returning to his former company as CEO.
Smith had retired in November 2007 from the engineering company that supplies specialized tooling used mainly in the tire building process. After that he worked as a consultant to specialist engineering company BPS Engineering L.L.C.
In returning to Greenback-based Wyko, Smith said he will seek to restructure the firm and re-establish its reputation in the industry. “Our products are accepted as world class and are supplied to all the major tire companies on a global basis,” he said. “Our challenge is to make sure our product reputation is matched by an impeccable corporate structure.”
