The United Kingdom is already the European market where Cooper Tire & Rubber is best-represented, however the tyre maker sees further potential to expand its market share. Speaking at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2014 Leveraged Finance Conference on 3 December, Cooper Tire & Rubber treasurer Tom Lause conveyed the company’s aim to grow in both developed and emerging European markets, and singled out the UK and Germany as areas of particular focus.
Tom Lause, currently controller – global operations at Cooper Tire & Rubber, has succeeded Brad Hughes as the company’s treasurer. He also assumes responsibility for the tax function at Cooper as part of this position. These new duties will be carried out alongside Lause’s existing role until a successor for the position of controller – global operations is appointed.
