New VP and treasurer at Cooper Tire & Rubber named

Cooper Tire & Rubber has named Jerry Bialek as the new VP and treasurer. As he takes on this new responsibility, Bialek will continue to lead investor relations for the company. Bialek replaces Tom Lause in the treasurer role, who retired from Cooper in January.

President and CEO Brad Hughes said, “Jerry has demonstrated strong financial expertise, leading complex finance organizations on a global basis, as well as heading investor relations and strategic planning for Cooper. We appreciate his contributions and look forward to his continued service to the company as treasurer.”

Bialek joined Cooper in 2014 as director of global financial planning and analysis, and a year later was named director, investor relations and strategic planning.

In 2017, he was promoted to the position of VP, finance and strategy, supporting Cooper’s Asia operations. In this role, he continued leadership of the company’s investor relations function.

Prior to Cooper, Bialek held a variety of finance leadership positions within the automotive industry, including 18 years with Ford Motor Company as well as roles at Johnson Controls and Taica North America Corporation. He holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Michigan and an MBA in Finance from Oakland University, Rochester, Michigan.
