CYPRESS, Calif. (June 15, 2010)—Steve Weinger, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp., has retired after a 28-year career with the manufacturer.
Weinger, who joined Cypress-based Toyo in 1982 after nearly a decade with Michelin North America Inc., initially served as a fleet promotions sales manager for the company. He moved on to become the national director of truck tire sales.
During his tenure with Toyo, Weinger implemented programs that resulted in record increases in overall sales, the company said. One such effort was the introduction of mass-appeal passenger tires, including the Spectrum and Versado lines.
Most recently, Weinger was vice president of strategic accounts. He took on that role Jan. 1, 2009.
