The Tire Industry Association (TIA) announced the addition of Brian Hesje, chairman of the board of Fountain Tire to a seat on the new Environmental Advisory Council (EAC). Hesje will replace Jim Pangle, also of Fountain Tire, on the committee. Hesje is a past CEO of Fountain Tire and also currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Alberta Recycling Management Authority. Fountain Tire is one of Canada’s largest tire retail chains, with 140 stores from Ontario to British Columbia.

The EAC has been established with the goals of providing strategic information, advisory services, educational programs, and governmental assistance that promote environmental awareness throughout the tire industry.

“Brian’s impressive history in the tire industry -and, specifically, the retail tire sector -has given him a unique insight into the issues facing tire recycling. He is a leader in Canadian tire recycling, and TIA is indeed fortunate to be able to add him to our impressive roster of Environmental Advisory Committee members,” said TIA president Wayne Croswell.
