Michelin Tyre plc has appointed Guy Heywood, 48, as Commercial Director of its operations in the UK and Ireland. He retains his position as head of Michelin’s truck and bus division, which he has held since 2012. The expanded role will also see Heywood oversee relationships with some of the largest customers in the UK and Ireland, which utilise a broad range of Michelin products.
Commenting on his new position, Heywood says: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work closely with teams across the business. As the largest tyre manufacturer in the UK, our three plants in Ballymena, Dundee and Stoke-on-Trent collectively have a larger manufacturing output than every other tyre manufacturer in the UK combined. That’s a fantastic position for Michelin to be in, and it’s one which resonates firmly with our customers.”
