Bridgestone employees were recognized for their outstanding first half results and were treated to an afternoon of live music, food, fun, stadium tours and activities that included corn hole toss, tire throw, caricatures and photos with former Titans players Kevin Dyson, Cortland Finnegan and Chris Hope in addition to Titan cheerleaders, Kaitlin and Kiara.
"Everyone is so excited to kick off this new season at Nissan Stadium, there's a buzz in the air!" said Brad McClanahan, Titans director of marketing. "Our partners at Bridgestone are such a big part of the NFL and the Titans, it just makes sense to host them here and give them these exclusive experiences."
"With the start of the 2015 NFL season just around the corner, we could not think of a better place to have a teammate celebration than Nissan stadium as it reinforces our partnership with the NFL and the Titans organization," said John Baratta, Bridgestone's president of consumer replacement tire sales. "We appreciate the Titans' hospitality by providing behind-the-scenes tours and experiences our teammates could only get because of our relationship with the team. We also thank the Titans alumni players for spending some time with our employees. It was great to get to know them on a personal level."
