Liberty Tire Recycling Appoints President and CCO

Prior to joining Liberty, the new President, Andrew Meurer spent more than 12 years at Michelin

Liberty Tire Recycling, Pittsburgh, has hired Andrew Meurer as its president and chief commercial officer.

Meurer has come from 12 years at Michelin where he was most recently vice president of sales for the North American Passenger Tire Division.

Liberty says Meurer, who will report directly to CEO Thomas Womble, will spearhead the company’s efforts to collaborate with tyre manufacturers and tyre retailers to expand existing and design new sustainable end-of-life solutions for tres.

“Meurer is the right person for the next phase of Liberty,” Womble says. “As an industry, we know we need to continue to evolve and innovate since end-of-life tyres can be one of the biggest risks manufacturers and retailers face if they aren’t managed properly.”

Meurer says; “End-of-life tyres are a big challenge. Tyres today are safer and last longer than ever before, but that makes them even more difficult to recycle. I am excited to work with Liberty and the team at Energy Capital Partners to transform tyre recycling so we can better meet the needs of the entire value chain.”
