Andy Davies Appointed MD of Bridgestone Austria
The new managing director taking the reins at Bridgestone’s Austrian operations, Bridgestone Austria GmbH, is perhaps a familiar name to many in the UK tyre industry. After twelve years in the job, incumbent managing director Michael Glockner is moving on to a Brussels based position with the Japanese tyre major. In his place comes 35-year old Andy Davies, who began his career with Bridgestone UK in 1996 before making the cross channel move to a position within Bridgestone Europe in 2001.
Since 2006 Davies has held the position of general manager, Sales and Marketing for passenger car, 4×4 and light truck tyres for Bridgestone Europe. He will now take charge of 51 company employees at Bridgestone’s Austrian distribution operations.
