McCarthy Tire Service is proud to announce that our teammate Dan Phillips was inducted into the Hall of Fame by the North Carolina Aggregates Association (NCAA) during their 2019 Annual Convention in Greenville, South Carolina.
Based out of our tire shop in Greensboro, North Carolina, Dan is a commercial sales representative specializing in off-the-road (OTR) tires for earthmoving, aggregate, quarry, and mine work. He was employed by Ragan Tire Group for 12 years prior to coming on board with McCarthy Tire when we acquired Ragan Tire in 2015.
Dan grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina, where he worked with his family’s auto service business. He played baseball at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, and graduated with a degree in business management. For more than 40 years, Dan has spent hundreds of hours doing tire surveys on production equipment in quarries across North Carolina, gaining a wealth of knowledge of OTR tire usage and best practices.
“Dan has earned the respect of his peers. Countless plant managers have relied on his expertise at budget time to forecast their tire usage for the next year,” notes Ty Smith, vice president of OTR operations and sales. “Dan has been deeply committed to working in aggregate industry. He is always eager to share his expertise with others in the field. I don’t think Dan has missed attending a single NCAA Annual Convention in the last 20 years.”
As part of his induction to the Hall of Fame, Dan was awarded the Golden Hard Hat and held the Golden Shovel for a photo opp. The photo will be displayed on a plaque in the NCAA’s office.
The North Carolina Aggregates Association (NCAA), incorporated in 1964, is a nonprofit trade association of companies engaged in the production and/or sale of crushed stone, sand, and gravel in North Carolina. Associate members are suppliers of equipment, products, or service to the aggregates industry. McCarthy Tire Service is a proud member of NCAA.
