TRAC's President Glenn Maidment Announces Retirement at the 100th AGM
Cambridge, Ontario; June 11, 2020—Tire and Rubber Association of Canada’s President announces retirement after more than 50 years in the industry.
After leading one of the industry’s preeminent associations since 2001, Glenn Maidment announced at TRAC’s Annual General Meeting of Members on June 9, 2020, that he will be stepping down and retiring at the end of 2020. He will continue to lead the Association, assist the Board in search for a new President, and ensure a smooth and seamless transition for the Association. TRAC’s Board is also setting up a committee to launch the search for the new President (interested candidates can find the position requirements here: https://bit.ly/TRACPresident, and should forward inquiries to HR@tracanada.ca).
“Celebrating TRAC’s first centennial feels like an appropriate time for me to pass on the reins to the next generation of leaders in the Canadian tire and rubber industry,” says Maidment. “I have had the distinct privilege of serving as President of TRAC for the past 19 years and believe we have accomplished much together, though there is always more to do. On a personal note, working for TRAC and our industry has been the most rewarding experience I could ever have imagined for myself and I thank our Board and Members for the opportunity to serve this wonderful industry.”
“When people speak of the tire industry in Canada, they generally speak of Glenn Maidment,” says Paul Christou, TRAC’s Chair, and Controller at Goodyear Canada Inc.
Incoming Board Chair, Tony Mougios, and Canadian Zone Director – Consumer Products Division, Michelin North America said, “Glenn has been a fixture in the industry and an instrumental figure on all the key files the industry has been working on for the past 30 years. On behalf of all the TRAC’s members: “Thank you, Glenn, for the decades of faithful service and your contribution. Congratulations!””
The Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC; www.tracanada.ca) is the national trade association representing the interests of tire and other rubber manufacturers and importers of rubber goods into Canada, together with rubber recyclers and suppliers whose goods or services directly relate to our industry. The Association was established in 1920 under the name The Rubber Association of Canada, only recently changing its name to the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada to more accurately reflect the Association’s role within the industry and what it does for its membership.
