Robert Mercer, CEO who helped win Goodyear War, dies at age 96 - Akron Beacon Journal
Lemmerz. Other non-tire subsidiaries were also sold off. Goodyear eventually sold the Celeron oil and gas business to a Texas company in 1998 for $420 million.Under Mercer, Goodyear introduced its first run-flat tire and also radial racing tires that debuted at the 1987 Indianapolis 500.Decrying takeoversMercer became a critic of Wall Street’s takeover culture, calling a proliferation of hostile takeovers and U.S. securities laws that allowed them "an obscenity."He took part in an "Ethics in America" panel discussion, part of the Fred Friendly Seminars series on PBS, in 1988, where he decried takeover culture."It’s a one-time hit, where we get a spike in the share price and we cash out a corporation instead of operating it as a viable operation sometime in the future," Mercer said. "We have to have a plan that means the corporate will survive, will become more competitive, will increase jobs and enhance value over a period of time and not just a one-shot price."Mercer in "Wheels of Fortune" said he never bought the idea that the shareholder is the owner of a company."They own a piece of paper with the company’s name on it, and they’ll get rid of that paper at the drop of an eighth of a point in the stock price," he said. "Our employees, whether union or otherwise, have a wife or husband and kids and years invested in the company, and they’re looking at investing more years. First and foremost, you have an obligation to your customers. But you have to do the right thing by your employees."Mercer’s background Mercer was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, the son of the late Margaret and George Mercer. His father was a Ford dealer and police commissioner in Roselle Park, New Jersey, a New York City suburb.He had a twin brother, Richard, and older brother Donald, both of whom had successful careers in advertising and broadcasting.Mercer won a baseball scholarship to Ohio University but left after one semester when the U.S. entered World War II and he and his twin were drafted into the Navy. Mercer attended officer candidate school at Yale University and received an officer’s commission, and served on the USS Cleveland. He graduated from Yale in 1946 with a degree in mechanical engineering.He is survived by his wife, Mary (Deuel); they married in 1947. That same year he joined Goodyear as a sales trainee, selling conveyor belt and industrial hose in the company’s Duluth, Minnesota, territory that included Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.He was promoted throughout his years at Goodyear and was named company president in 1978, chief operating officer in 1980 and then chairman and CEO in 1983, succeeding Charles Pilliod. He retired as CEO at age 65, with Tom Barrett taking over the top position."It is not an exaggeration to say that the Goodyear of today would not exist without Bob Mercer," said Rich Kramer, Goodyear chairman, president and chief executive officer."As our CEO during the attempted takeover of the company in 1986, Bob stood firm in his commitment to our associates, to the company, to our customers and to the city of Akron. He not only saved the company from an uncertain fate but used the experience to reposition us for growth in the future. Bob added to the legacy of a great American company and planted the seeds for the Goodyear of the future. Everyone in the Goodyear family owes Bob Mercer a debt of gratitude and appreciation."Other activitiesMerce... Aug 3, 2020
Howard Dungan - Obituary - Legacy.com
Marine Corps, he instead joined the Army Air Forces. Training locations included, Santa Ana, California; Glendale, Arizona; Pecos, Texas; Douglas, Arizona; and Greenville, South Carolina as First Station. In the South andTexas he became more aware of deeper issues of racial inequality than he'd seen in Nebraska, where his family sometimes hosted a visiting African Methodist Episcopal (AME) minister for lunch, and he strove to treat everyone fairly throughout his life. In the chapel on base in Pecos, Texas he married Anita Alene Sibbitt, an accomplished violinist who had graduated from what is now the University of Nebraska at Kearney and taught high school for a year in Yutan,Nebraska. She followed Howard around the country for much of his pilot training, working variously as a butcher's helper, nurse's aid, and store clerk.Howard was later stationed in Hawaii, flying North American B-25 Mitchells. While he was flying missions in B-25s as a First Lieutenant in the 7th Air Force, 41st Bombardment Group, 820th Bomb Squadron out of Okinawa over Japan and Japanese-occupied China, Anita had become a "Rosie the Riveter" and learned gas welding at Ryan Aeronautical in San Diego.After the war she resumed teaching and then guidance counseling, and completed her master's degree at what is now San Diego State University. Howard also completed his bachelor's degree there on the G.I. Bill, and later his master's degree. Both did post-graduate work at the University of Southern California.From 1948 to 1984 Howard was a teacher and guidance counselor in the San Diego Unified School District, with most of that time at Theodore Roosevelt Junior High School (now Roosevelt International Middle School) where he primarily taught geography, social studies, and history, sometimes with what was referred to as a "Mr. Dungan story." Years into retirement, he would still run into former students greeting him and saying, "Mr. Dungan, you told the dumbestjokes and stories!" Howard would ask which one; the former student would repeat it and the context, and then he would reply, "Ah, but you remembered!"Howard and Anita loved to play golf at the Tijuana Country Club and Balboa Park Golf Course, were once active in the Methodist Church in La Mesa, and had a custom home built in Spring Valley where they resided until they passed. They vacationed in Mexico City, and traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada with a succession of travel trailers. These trips were later accompanied by their only child, Michelle Dungan, now a retired California Department of Transportation Associate Environmental Planner. After Anita passed in 2006,Howard eventually resumed trave... Aug 3, 2020
