MELKSHAM, England (May 3, 2012)—Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. Europe Ltd. has appointed Peter McNally as general manager of its European Technical Center.
McNally, whose appointment takes place immediately, is based at the company's European headquarters in Melksham.
The appointment follows the move of Gavin Edwards, former general manager of the ETC, to Cooper's Asia Technical Center.
Among McNally's responsibilities will be overseeing the certification of Cooper's plant in Serbia, acquired and opened last month, and the beginning of production there.
He joined Cooper Tire in 1987 as a tire technician in the Avon Racing division. Shortly after, he became a tire design engineer for motorcycle, rally cars, V6 eurocars, hot rod, historic F1 and other applications.
