Continental Tire the Americas has appointed John DeSalle as president of the newly acquired Hoosier Racing Tire Corporation business, reporting directly to Dr Jochen Etzel, CEO of Continental Tire the Americas and Hoosier.

DeSalle began his career with Hoosier in 1989, developing radial race tire technology. Over the years, he took on more responsibilities, including managing all of Hoosier’s tire engineering, test labs and plant scheduling. In 2010, DeSalle was promoted to vice president of engineering and manufacturing and will continue in this role in addition to his new responsibilities as president of Hoosier.

“John has been with Hoosier for more than 20 years and brings extensive knowledge in the racing tire segment, an area of business that is new for Continental,” said Etzel.

“In addition, John and his team at Hoosier are known for their technical product knowledge, quality manufacturing, outstanding service, and consistent performance. I am confident he will lead the Hoosier racing tire business to further success and I look forward to working with John and the Hoosier team.”
