AKRON, Ohio, September 18, 2017 – The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company today announced two new leadership appointments for its North America consumer business. Mike Dwyer has been named chief marketing officer, and Mike Dauberman has been named chief digital officer. Both appointments are effective immediately, and both leaders report to Scott Rogers, who was recently named president, North America Consumer, for Goodyear.
As CMO, Dwyer will be responsible for brand, product and retail/shopper marketing; interactive/e-commerce; market research; and Goodyear Racing. He joined Goodyear in 2014 as marketing director for its North America consumer business. In that role, he was instrumental in building some of the company’s best-known marketing assets, including extending Goodyear’s relationship with college football and establishing the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic.
Dwyer later became global head of brand marketing. Prior to Goodyear, Dwyer worked for Unilever, driving growth in iconic brands across multiple consumer product categories.
In a newly created role, Dauberman will focus on continuing to strengthen Goodyear’s connected business model to enable the company and its customers to win in a rapidly changing environment. Among his areas of focus will be identifying new initiatives to accelerate Goodyear’s consumer business and leading a Digital Center of Excellence for the region.
Dauberman joined Goodyear in 2011 and was previously senior director, Marketing & Interactive. In that role, he built the digital and interactive team and capabilities that have positioned Goodyear as an industry leader online, including leading the launch of Goodyear’s e-commerce strategy. Prior to Goodyear, Dauberman worked for Norwegian Cruise Line, leading interactive and consumer relationship management (CRM) initiatives, and prior to that for Travelocity, a leading online travel retailer.
“I have enormous confidence in both Mike Dwyer and Mike Dauberman. They will excel in their new roles and help us continue to drive growth in the consumer business for Goodyear and its customers,” said Rogers.
