TBC Corporation has announced the promotion of Gary Skidmore to senior vice president and general manager for its Big O Tires franchise, according to a press release.
Skidmore has nearly 38 years of experience in the automotive industry. He started by working in his own family’s Big O Tires store, which earned his father a place in the Big O Tires Hall of Fame.
For the past 20 years, Skidmore has held various leadership roles with TBC, most recently as the divisional vice president for Big O Tires, East.
In his new role, Skidmore will help the company to expand its value and to create new opportunities for the Big O Tires brand as he succeeds Brian Maciak, who previously held the position.
“Gary's collaborative leadership style, and extensive and considerable knowledge of our franchisees and business experiences in the field, will help ensure further growth and success of Big O Tires,” said TBC President and CEO Sam Kato.
