The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) board has selected long-time project manager/program director Marc Hildesheim as the next executive director of the organization.
“I’m very excited to lead NOHVCC on the next leg of its journey and can’t wait to see what the staff, the board of directors, and our partners can achieve,” says Hildesheim.
Hildesheim and his family have a long history in OHV recreation starting with the Brush Bunch Motorcycle Club, of which Hildesheim’s grandfather was a founding member in 1970. He is now a third-generation club member with his brother and father.
Hildesheim began working on trails as a seasonal trail ranger for the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation and later as a full-time staff member as a trails specialist. He later moved to New Mexico to work for the state OHV program, first as the OHV education coordinator and then as the OHV program manager.
“Marc has been a champion with his great work in the OHV community for over 20 years. And the Hildesheim family is a perfect example of what our great sport is all about. NOHVCC’s mission is looking very strong,” says Dan Kleen, president of the board of directors.
Hildesheim currently resides in Post Falls, Idaho with his wife, three kids, and two Australian Shepherds where he rides dirt bikes whenever life will let him. He will officially start as the director on June 5.
