Frasier Tire welcomes new VP of sales, operations


Frasier Tire Service, an automotive, commercial and industrial tire and repair dealer in Sumter, Charleston, Columbia and the greater South Carolina area, recently welcomed Chris Lee to its team as vice president of sales and operations.

Lee comes to the Frasier Tire Service headquarters in Sumter. He has 28 years of experience in retail tire and auto repair, commercial truck tire sales and service and industrial and wholesale tire sales.

He recently moved with his wife, Manning, and their family to Sumter from Easton, Maryland, to work at Frasier Tire Service, a company that has been operating for more than 47 years.

"We worked a long time to get Mr. Lee to join forces with us. His unique skill set will be a game-changer for us to move forward as a leading commercial dealer statewide," said Julian Frasier, owner and president of the company.

In Maryland, Lee helped build a similar Goodyear tire business in the Annapolis area for close to three decades. During that time, he served on multiple dealer advisory committees as well as trade organization councils locally and nationally.

"I'm proud to become a part of this great organization and work with such a great man, Julian Frasier, and his excellent team of professionals," Lee said. "This company is a natural fit for me with my time and experience in the industry. I love my new hometown and am looking forward to many years serving Sumter and the greater South Carolina community."
