Richard Lyons joins Trelleborg as North Region general manager, UK MD
Richard Lyons has become Trelleborg wheel system’s industrial and construction general manager for the North Europe region. The latest move follows Lyons’ appointment as managing director of Trelleborg Wheel Systems UK operations and its Interfit fitting and fleet service business, which took place back in April 2016.
Both appointments follow 10 years at Giti Tire, which saw Lyons lead the establishment and development of Giti’s truck and car tyre brands across Europe.
In light of Trelleborg’s acquisition of Mitas Lyons joins at an interesting time for the company, which has clearly grown by virtue of an ambitious acquisition strategy but appears to be continuing on a growth path.
