Author Topic: Edouard Michelin, head of tire company, killed in boating accident off France  (Read 1922 times)

Offline Wizzo

Edouard Michelin, the co-managing partner of the French tire company that bears his family name, was killed Friday in a boating accident, officials said. Michelin, who had headed the tire group since 1999, was killed near Sein island off western France's Atlantic coast, a company statement said.

Michelin, who was in his early 40s, joined the company in 1985. The company said its other managing partner, Michel Rollier, would take over. Michelin joined the company in 1985, nearly a century after it was founded in 1889 by his great-grandfather Edouard and his great-great uncle Andre Michelin.

The younger Edouard Michelin held various posts in research, production and sales. He was a production manager at the company's Puy-en-Velay factory before becoming CEO of its North America subsidiary.

He became a managing partner in 1991, and was appointed Michelin's head on June 11, 1999.

I'm sure all members and guests of F1wizard will join me in wishing Edouard's family and friends our deepest sympathy.
