TBC Corporation Continues Expansion of Supply Chain & Logistics Team

Palm Beach Gardens, FL – April 3, 2018 –  TBC Corporation, one of North America’s largest marketers of automotive replacement tires, recently announced the growth of the leadership team in Supply Chain & Logistics to support expansion for the company. The newest additions to the team announced this week include John Flowers as VP, Supply Chain Optimization & Performance and David Rodriguez as VP, Supply Chain Planning.

Flowers joins TBC from ATD where he supported the business as SVP of Operations for eight years and VP of Operations for 8 years. In his role at ATD, he developed and implemented systems, processes and facilities that enabled systemic growth, facilitated alternate channel opportunities and permitted aggressive expansion through acquisition. Prior to his tenure with ATD, John held roles in both operations and logistics at AmeriServe Distribution Services, Phillip Morris/Kraft General Foods and Interstate Motor Freight.

Rodriguez joins the team from CVS where he concentrated on supply chain for the past seven years. Prior to CVS, he worked for Walmart with a focus on supply chain, merchandising and retail operations.

Just a few months prior, in January 2018, TBC announced the addition of XPO’s Sean O’Laughlin to VP of Distribution for the company.

“The addition of team members with an extensive supply chain and logistics background will be extremely beneficial to the team as we support initiatives that impact all stakeholders and areas of our business,” recognized Scott Clark, SVP of Supply Chain & Logistics, who joined the team from Jo-Ann Stores LLC in September 2017.

“For the past 62 years, TBC has been a tire company ahead of the curve. We’ve been able to maintain our industry leading position, and plan to continue doing so, through the leadership of 10,000+ associates led by team leaders with extensive industry expertise, operational knowledge and a commitment to leading with excellence,” said Erik R. Olsen, President & CEO, TBC Corporation. “The growth of the leadership on the Supply Chain and Logistics team is a testament to the expansion opportunities ahead for TBC and we’re confident we have the right people in place to lead them.”
