Tire Stewardship BC (TSBC) is pleased to announce that Mr. Glen Ringdal has accepted the position of board Chair.  Glen has been a TSBC board member since the agency’s commencement in 2007 and replaces former chair Don Blythe who passed away earlier this year.

From 2001 to 2008, Mr. Ringdal was President of British Columbia’s New Car Dealers Association (NCDA), the provincial industry association that represents more than 390 new car and truck dealers throughout the province. The Association speaks on behalf of the retail new automotive industry to the public, media, and government, and deals primarily with the legal, environmental, and consumer issues relating to new vehicle sales in British Columbia.

Glen previously served the industry on the boards of the Automotive Industry Training Authority (AITA) and the Automotive Training Standards Organization (ATSO).

Glen also spent over 25 years in Professional Sports marketing and administration in British Columbia.  He was vice-president of the Vancouver Canucks, President of the BC Lions, President of the Vancouver 86ers (Whitecaps) and in 2000 was named the JCC Sports Personality of the Year. Following his term as NCDA President, Glen re-entered the sports world as Manager of the Langley Events Centre and today he is the President and CEO of Prospera Centre in Chilliwack and the Chilliwack Chiefs BCHL Hockey Club.  In early 2014, he helped to form MMG Media Productions Inc. and Travel HotSpots Media Inc., a media products producer serving the travel industry.

Glen and his wife Sherry live in Coquitlam, BC.

CATRA looks forward to working with Glen in his new role as the TSBC board Chair.
