Fountain Tire names Randy Guidinger as MVP

At its annual Owners’ Convention in Victoria, BC, Fountain Tire says it recognized leaders within the organization and named Randy Guidinger, retired owner of the Leduc, AB Fountain Tire, Most Valuable Player.

Guidinger was honored for 35 years of successful and dedicated service in Leduc, says Fountain Tire. In 2021, his store saw a 28 percent increase in sales and received a Fountain Tire benchmark award for surpassing financial targets. He was also recognized for his career-long commitment to supporting Fountain Tire associates.

In addition to leadership in business, the Fountain Tire says the Most Valuable Player award recognizes community leadership. Fountain Tire Leduc has a long history of supporting local initiatives, including the Rotary Club of Nisku-Leduc’s community enhancement programs, the Leduc Rodeo, the local 4-H club, the Leduc Riggers hockey team and the Leduc Curling Club.

Fountain Tire says under its partnership model, managers own 50 percent equity in their stores. Awarded annually since 2004, the Most Valuable Player is selected from owners across Fountain Tire’s network of 165 locations. Nominees are graded on several business success markers, including leadership, community involvement, customer relationships and safety.
