Andy Wirth – Prudent Ski Resort Investor

Andy Wirth is an American businessman that finds pleasure in working in the mountain resort industry. Mr. Andy Wirth holds a bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University, and also attended Edinburg University, located in the United Kingdom. Edinburg University is known as one of the best colleges in the entire world. Mr. Wirth especially enjoys working in the ski industry; he is the the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings.

The astute businessman known as Mr. Andy Wirth has recently been appointed the chairman of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board. The Airport Authority Board serves as a catalyst of Reno’s economy, as airport traffic brings business in. It goes without saying, but since Reno is a popular tourist location, the city of Reno greatly benefits from airports and increased airplane traffic. Andy Wirth is one of nine members on the Board, and has been working for the Airport Authority Board since 2013. Only prudent, experienced businesspeople such as Mr. Wirth get appointed to the Board, let alone appointed as chairman after only two years of service.

Mr. Wirth is currently employed as the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings. Andy Wirth is not only experienced in the trade and management of domestic ski resorts, as he is in the international trade and management of ski resorts. Part of being a CEO of a ski resort is having to work with airline companies, since having airports close to ski resorts is pretty important – without any airports, what vacationers are going to come? Yes, still, many are going to come, even though they might have to drive a little while, but airports close to ski resorts really do bring a lot of business.

Aside from his well-prospering business endeavors, Mr. Wirth is also active philanthropy. One of his favorite organizations to be involved with is the Wounded Warrior Support, which is an Ironman team that raises fun for the Navy SEALs. Believe it or not (believe it, because it’s true), Mr. Andy Wirth was in a skydiving accident that almost killed him, then he went on to form Wounded Warrior Support. What a man! Not many people can have enough perseverance and willpower to do something as admirable as that feat.
