Andy Wirth is a popular figure among the resort management community after he brought success to a number of different resorts across North America and the Carribean; but for Wirth working with the community is almost as important as business to this adventure loving CEO. Among the projects Andy Wirth is currently working on is the expansin and growth of the Reno Tahoe Airport, which he has recently been appointed to the Airport Authority Board of as the chair based upon his experience working with similar airport authorities in Canada and the U.S.
Squaw Valley is one of the best known ski resorts in the U.S. and found fame as the first European style resort in North America before finding global fame as a host location of the Winter Olympics. Squaw Valley has recently found itself returned to the list of locations for the skiing world championships, but the constant growth Andy Wirth looks for has been increased with plans to link the resort to its sister location of Alpine Meadows. Andy Wirth has personally looked to develop relationships with landowners covering the short distance between the two resorts in a bid to receive permission for the planned gondola link between the two resorts the German born executive is in charge of.
There is much to admire in the career and life of Andy Wirth, including his own need to give back to the community he works within through his philanthropic giving and consistent need to help local communities. Among the impressive philanthropic giving Wirth has undertaken is his decision to take part in iron man competitions to raise funds for the families of Navy Seals’ just a short time after Wirth was himself injured in a life threatening accident. Wirth has been a major force in the conservation area and worked as a volunteer firefighter, placing his own life on the line to help those he lives among.
