Forbes magazine has again saluted Goodyear as one of the most reputable companies in the nation.

Notching 38th place in the magazine’s sixth annual tally of corporate reputations in the U.S., it is the only tire maker on the list and the highest-ranked firm in the automotive industry.

“This recognition is particularly meaningful as it is based on surveys with the general public – the consumers who buy our tires and put their trust in Goodyear and its products every day,” says Richard J. Kramer, chairman and CEO.

“I’m especially pleased with our ranking because it reflects the public’s perception of not only our products, but our company as a whole,” he adds.

“We are proud that our associates take the initiative to do good works that benefit our fellow associates, our customers, our communities and the environment,” says Kramer. “The survey indicates that the public recognizes our corporate citizenship and respects the Goodyear brand for more than great tires.”

Forbes’ list is based on the results of the Reputation Institute’s U.S. Reputation Pulse consumer opinion survey, which measures the overall respect, trust, esteem, admiration and good feelings consumers hold toward 150 of the country’s largest companies.

Scores are based on RI’s seven dimensions of reputation: Products/services, innovation, governance, workplace, citizenship, leadership and financial performance. RI says the 2011 survey indicates that the top three drivers of corporate reputation are products and services, governance and citizenship.
