Rancho Cucamonga, CA – New Sumitomo Rubber North America (SRNA) President and CEO Darren Thomas has announced that Toby Beiner has been appointed Chief Financial Officer, overseeing both Falken Tires and Dunlop Motorcycle Tires, effective immediately.
Prior to his time at SRNA, Beiner earned his MBA from the University of Southern California and served in several senior-level financial management roles including Controller and CFO. In July 2018, Beiner joined Sumitomo Rubber North America as Corporate Controller before being promoted to Vice President of Finance in September 2020. Beiner brings a 20+ year track-record of leading and transforming finance functions to his new role as SRNA’s CFO.
“Considering the magnitude of our North American revenues, which exceeded 1 billion USD, Toby’s leadership and knowledge are essential as we continue to grow,” noted Thomas. “The multiple capabilities he provides, plus the experience gained working with former SRNA President and CEO Richard Smallwood and former CFO Pete Buck, will enable Toby to further succeed in his new role.”
Thomas added, “I look forward to having Toby contribute for many years serving the needs of our SRNA colleagues, customers and vendors while keeping the company on a solid financial track.”
