Brent Hesje becomes chair of NAIT's Board of Governors
If you met the CEO of a company with just under $600 million in annual revenue and more than 2,000 employees, you might not expect him to take your coat and get you a cup of coffee, but that's the kind of person Brent Hesje is.
Hesje, the new chair of NAIT's Board of Governors, joined Fountain Tire as marketing manager in 1992 at the age of 29. Within two years he became an owner and vice-president of marketing; he was appointed CEO in 2005. Shortly after, he joined the NAIT board, which governs and guides the polytechnic. Two terms later, in October 2013, he was appointed chair, becoming its representative to government, stakeholders and the community.
Always up for a challenge, Hesje was the first Edmonton participant in the CEO Rescue in the Rockies fundraiser for STARS Air Ambulance, winning the fiercest competitor award in 2013. He also likes to challenge the links and last year golfed some of Scotland's classic courses and caught the final round of the 2013 Open Championship.
We spoke to Hesje about how he'll bring this kind of energy to helping NAIT keep its promises to support Alberta, students, industry and staff.
techlife: What appealed to you about being a NAIT board member? About being chair?
Brent Hesje: When I thought about it from a Fountain Tire point of view, NAIT is a really important supplier to Alberta and our business, through its trades programs, and there are grads in the corporate side of our business.
