Brent Hesje has been inducted into the Tire Industry Association Hall of Fame.
On November 4, 2019 Brent Hesje, CEO of Edmonton-based Fountain Tire, was inducted into the Tire Industry Association (TIA) Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the growth and development of the tire industry.
“The Hall of Fame Award recognizes amazing individuals who have proven themselves as key industry influencers,” says Roy Littlefield, TIA CEO. “Mr. Hesje sets the example of an exceptional leader who has not only grown his business in strides, but has also given back to the industry, to the business community and to his local community.”
Hesje is the second Fountain Tire leader to be inducted into the TIA Hall of Fame. The company’s founder, Bill Fountain, received the same award posthumously in 2011.
“It is an honour to be recognized by my peers in the tire industry, and to bring this award back to Canada on behalf of our store partners across the country and our corporate office team in Edmonton,” says Hesje. “I’ve always believed Fountain Tire’s collaborative, partnership-based approach has been integral to our success. It has also allowed us to evolve as a company and to give back in meaningful ways to the communities where we live and work.”
