Goodyear fires three managers in Europe
Goodyear has fired three of its European managers, obviously holding them responsible for what the company calls accounting errors. Scialom (Vice President Finance Europe), McKnight (Managing Director Sales Countries) and his finance manager Loysen have bitten the dust. As far as it is known the three were given no reason for the notice, at this stage.
Spokesmen for the group even refused to comment as to whether the three had been fired or had taken retirement. Goodyear is under formal investigation by the SEC and had to inform the public yesterday yet again, that it had found more accounting errors in the US, in the region of 16 million US dollars. Analysts are now concerned that Goodyear could be too busy dealing with these alleged improper actions instead of leading the company into a much needed turnaround.
