Fairlawn, OH – Charles Seymour is now responsible ContiTech’s operations in North America.

The executive board of ContiTech AG appointed Seymour, previously vice-president and general manager for Veyance North America, as executive vice-president of the newly established business region ContiTech NAFTA, starting immediately.

Taking the combined businesses of ContiTech and Veyance into account, he will coordinate joint forces to even better meet the needs of the customers and at the same time strengthen the ContiTech business in general in that region.

After several leading positions in the industry, Seymour joined Veyance Technologies Inc. as vice-president and general manager of the North American Region in March 2010. A native of northeast Ohio, he was born and raised in Cleveland. He earned his BA from Bowdoin College, majoring in economics and government. He received his MBA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
