A representative for Goodyear didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Stewart declined to comment.
Goodyear initiated a review to maximize shareholder value last July after shedding jobs to deal with softening demand and spiraling inflation.
As part of its deal with activist investor Elliott Investment Management, the company agreed to appoint new board members.
The new directors included Joseph Hinrichs, a former senior executive at Ford Motor who now is CEO of railroad giant CSX.; Max Mitchell, CEO of aerospace and defense supplier Crane; and Tenneco’s former co-CEO, Roger Wood.
