Steve Weinger has retired from Toyo, capping off a 28-year career at the company after previously working for more than nine years at Michelin.

During his stint at Toyo, Weinger was honored for his efforts in developing and marketing the Spectrum tire, which led to the variety of other releases, including the Versado line of luxury tires.

Joining Toyo in 1982 as fleet promotions sales manager, Weinger later became the national director of truck tire sales. He ultimately rose to the position of senior vice president of sales and marketing, implementing a number of successful endeavors, according to Yasushi Takagi, president and CEO of the U.S. division.

“He has left a proud legacy with the company,” says Takagi, “and we wish Steve the very best for a relaxing and enjoyable retirement.”
