Andrew Hoit, Falken Tire Corp.'s vice president of sales, has been appointed to the board of directors of Tread Lightly! The appointment was made on Oct. 7, 2014, at Tread Lightly!’s annual meeting in Salt Lake City, the company's headquarters.

"I believe strongly in what Tread Lightly! does," says Hoit. "Off-roading is such an important sport to me, and I have always been a proponent of education which is vital to protecting our natural environment in its natural condition so everyone can continually enjoy access to our public lands.
"I look forward to helping Tread Lightly! grow its membership and ensure access to offroading as a sustainable recreational activity for generations to come."
Falken Tire, a manufacturer of high performance on- and off-road tires for cars, trucks, SUVs and crossovers, has supported Tread Lightly! through a cooperative partnership dedicated to helping the organization educate the public on the importance of conserving environments to ensure sustainable recreation endures as an outdoor lifestyle.
