Mr Young made a valuable contribution to the company, and we wish him well in the future.

In the interim, Mete Ekin, Regional Managing Director for the Middle East and Africa, will assume direct responsibility for Bridgestone South Africa. Mr Ekin is a seasoned Bridgestone executive with extensive experience in the tyre industry, particularly in developing economies. He will continue to work with the local executive and management team to ensure that Bridgestone South continues to execute against its strategic goals.

An announcement relating to the appointment of a new CEO will be made in due course.
