Giti Tire’s European growth strategy has been strengthened with the appointment of Dr Gabriele Bosselmann to the newly created position of HR Director – Europe.
Dr Bosselmann will join the EU leadership team and be responsible for HR policies, processes and procedures, as well as hold a key role in the development of business plans and objectives.
Reporting directly to Richard Lyons, Managing Director – Europe, the move follows a period of rapid expansion for the company who introduced a strategic sales subsidiary into Europe in 2006 and set-up a sales and retail operation in the UK in 2009.
Dr Bosselmann, who possess over 20-years pan-European HR experience, joins from O-I Europe, the world’s leading glass packaging maker, where she held the title of HR Director. She previously held senior roles undertaking HR Deployment of LSS, FCP-Folding Carton Partners and Jackstädt GmbH.
Richard said: "In just eight years staff numbers across Europe have increased substantially in line with our market share, and our business strategy and growth projections will see this number expand still further over the coming months and years.
"The CV of Gabriele is hugely impressive, with a proven track record of strategic HR and financial management to match her qualifications. This is a huge coup for Giti Tire, and one that marks another important day in the development of the company and its brands."
Giti Tire is one of the top 10 largest tyre companies in the world in terms of volume and revenue. With a European portfolio including GT Radial, Primewell, Runway and Dextero, the business produces complete tyre ranges for passenger car, SUV, van, light truck, heavy truck and bus markets.
