Andy Wirth as a Humanitarian and a Business Manager in Squaw Valley

Andy Wirth is the current CEO of the Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, a leading company in skiing activities. The company engulfs the Squaw Valley and the Alpine meadows both which have attractive sites for extreme sports lovers. It is found in the Olympic Valley and attracts many people annually.

Featuring luxury hotels and spa lounges, it has become a perfect getaway spot for most of the individuals in the US and those who fancy the cold climate. Andy Wirth was elected the leader of this company after its purchase by the KSL partners from the original owners’ native to the Squaw Valley.

Andy Wirth has been quite visionary with Squaw Valley despite strong opposition from the neighboring communities on environmental issues. However, Squaw Valley and the parent company spearheaded by Andy has developed over the years to become a green company. Andy has faced fatal obstacles in life such as almost losing his arm completely in a skydiving accident.

He has, however, risen past these setbacks and pushed himself to the limits to be competent both as a business manager and an athlete. His cycling career is yet to get back to glory, but he trains hard despite having been taken back to ground zero by the accident.

According to Bloomberg, Andy Wirth’s potential is recognized by many people such as the Reno-Tahoe Regional Air Service Corporation, who recently elected him chairperson and the president to their executive board.

Having been humbled by this achievement, Andy expresses his gratitude and focuses on exploring the potential of the region served by the Reno-Tahoe Regional Air Service. He feels that the company will enable him to provide an opportunity also to recognize new prospects for flight in the region as well as promoting tourism. His position allows him to merge the interests of the two companies he is affiliated to for development in both.

Andy Wirth is also recognized for his philanthropy works he launched after the near death experience. The initiative deemed the Navy Seal Foundation is bent on recognizing the efforts of the Navy Seals warriors who have suffered injuries and fatalities in their service to the country.

Andy together with other two affiliates from the Seal who’ve had the experience first-hand feels it right to give back to these people. The funds amassed from this foundation will be used to cater for their injuries such as lost limbs and also serve as appreciation for giving their all on behalf of their country.
