Yokohama Tire Corp. has made several organizational changes within its commercial division.

Charles Russell, who is zone manager-strategic truckstops and OEM, will add responsibility for creating the structure for a commercial training and education department. Mark Sanderson, who was district sales manager, has been promoted to manager-commercial training and education.

“Education and business resources will be two key aspects of this commitment,” said Rick Phillips, director of commercial sales. “From proper tire selection that maximizes the life of the tires as assets to reducing the cost per mile for fleets, we want to be a partner in improving a company’s bottom line.”

Also, Tommy Bazzell has moved from national account manager to zone manager-commercial national accounts. And Dan Funkhouser, who was manager-national accounts, has been named zone manager-northern territory.
