Peggy J. Fisher — one of North America’s leading independent truck tire and wheel experts — has accepted the position of president of TireStamp’s U.S. operations, effective immediately. TireStamp is a provider of tire monitoring and tire asset management systems to commercial fleets, tire and automotive OEMs, and to telematics and telecommunications companies.
For the past 20 years, Fisher has held senior positions and been a consultant to leading commercial fleet operators and tire manufacturers. She was president of Roadway Tire Co., a retreading operation, for eight years; and manager of tire, trailer and dolly maintenance for Roadway Express for 11 years, during which time she was responsible for the maintenance of 28,000 trailers, 4,000 dollies and almost 200,000 tires and wheels. Most recently, Fisher has been a consultant to fleets, tire and wheel manufacturers, and related equipment suppliers; co-authored federal government studies on commercial truck tires and tire pressure monitoring systems; and written regular columns for Crain’s Tire Business.
Fisher is among the leaders of the Technology & Maintenance Council of the American Trucking Associations, having served as general chairman and treasurer, and chaired its tire and wheel study group for 10 years. She currently chairs two tire and wheel task forces. She also is active in tire industry associations; she served as a director of the International Tire & Rubber Association for seven years and currently serves as vice president of the Tire Industry Association. She also has served as a director of the Tire Retread Information Bureau from 1995 to 1998 and has been a full member of the Society of Automotive Engineers since 1983.
The Maintenance Council’s Peggy J. Fisher Award for Excellence in Study Group Leadership, which was awarded to her in 1986, is named for her. She also holds the coveted Silver Spark Plug Award for her contributions to improving heavy-duty vehicles, their maintenance and maintenance management; and TMC’s Recognized Associate Award for her dedicated service to the council.
“The addition of Peggy to lead our U.S. operation is another step in the growth of TireStamp and a strong signal that our products have caught the attention of commercial fleet operators,” says Scott Feagan, chairman and chief executive officer of Kanata, Ontario-based TireStamp. “Peggy’s management and tire experience, combined with her executive knowledge of the automotive and commercial fleet markets in the U.S.A., will add significant direction and momentum to our growth plans.”
