Sylvania entrepreneur joins Belle Tire

Belle Tire’s more than 30 years of expertise in northern Ohio and its commitment to excellent customer service has attracted some of the best automotive experts to its dynamic team of knowledgeable salespeople, certified technicians and mechanics. The tire retailer has earned a reputation for giving its employees incredible opportunities to work their way up the ranks at the company. Many of its employees have started their careers as tire technicians and are now directors of Retail Operations.

There are also many employees who have come to the retailer to begin a new mid-life career chapter –away to move up to the next level of success in the industry. The latter has been the case for several of the retailer’s new employees in Toledo.

Recently, five of Toledo’s most well-known automotive experts and entrepreneurs joined the Belle Tire team.

Joe Carroll, formerly the owner of Sylvania Tire and Wheel, joined the team at 6965 W. Central Ave., (across from Lowe’s) in Sylvania last month as the FirstAssistant Manager.After two decades as an entrepreneurial pillar in the community, he decided he wanted a fresh start at Belle Tire where he was very familiar with Store Manager Chad Hively, who was an important factor in helping him make the transition.

“Chad was a major reason I decided to make the change and come over to Belle Tire,” said Carroll.“He made it easy for me because he has always been extremely kind and welcoming to me,which reminded me of the same experience I tried to always give to my customers at Sylvania Tire and Wheel.”

Others include Nate Brown with over 25 years experience, Todd Thomas with 30 years experience, Toby Maxwell with 25 years of experience, and Robert Wagner with 25 years of experience.They all will be in local Belle Tire locations.
