Ginger Jones, who is currently senior VP and CFO at Cooper Tire, is to retire as a full-time executive later this year to focus on serving on public company boards of directors.
Jones joined Cooper in 2014 and will remain in her role until a replacement has been found and an orderly transition is completed. Cooper has initiated a search for Jones’ successor involving internal and external candidates.
“Ginger has made important contributions to Cooper, including playing a key role in the development of our long-term strategy and business priorities,” said president and CEO Brad Hughes.
“While she is moving to another stage in her career, we are grateful that Ginger is fully committed to helping us deliver on our plans and assuring a smooth transition.
“We are pleased that she and her family plan to remain in the Findlay (Ohio) community, and we thank Ginger for the critical role she has played and will continue to play over the coming months.”
Jones said, “I look forward to my next chapter, but will remain fully engaged at Cooper throughout the search and transition process. There is a strong, talented team in place at Cooper and I have every confidence in their ability to execute the exciting plans we have underway to grow the business.”
