CEO of the Independent Tire Dealers Group (ITDG) Dave Marks announced he will retire in 2023 after 45 years working in the tire industry. ITDG credits Marks, CEO since 2017, for leading its growth both in sales — now nearly $350 million annually — and number of locations — 1,007 and counting.
“I’ve enjoyed the business immensely but I think it’s time for simple fact to let someone take leadership role and take (ITDG) to the next level,” Marks said, noting he won’t officially retire until his successor is in place, adding “it is extremely important that it is seamless.”
Marks said there are plenty of things yet to accomplish for the group.
“We have a phenomenal trajectory for the future,” he said. “We have an outstanding team that will help drive ITDG to the next level into the future.”
