TRAC’s President Glenn Maidment Announces Retirement at the 100th AGM

After leading one of the industry’s pre-eminent 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.

“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 tyre 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 tyre 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.”
