It was once coherently stated by Sir. Winston Churchill that, “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board decided to embrace these wise words by bringing three new board members a new chairman on July 9. Andy Wirth, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of Squaw Valley Ski Resort, was appointed as the new chair of the nine-member board, while Jenifer Rose, Lisa Gianoli and Jessica Sferrazza were diligently sworn in as the new board members.
Wirth, who was appointed by the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority, stated that with new team players comes along new innovative ideas which will help raise the airport to an entirely new level. The new team players, including Mr. Wirth, are expected to incorporate all their talent and experience to enhancing travel to and from the region. The new members expressed their honor and dedication towards making Reno-Tahoe Airport the best in the entire Reno-Spark Region.
A recent news release reveals that Andy Wirth was appointed by the Reno-Sparks and Visitors Authority Board (RSCVA) in 2013. His appointment came about from his earlier extensive experience in international resort management and his involvement with various airlines in integrating new flights for resorts in Canada, Colorado, and Utah. While still serving as the chairman of Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board, Mr. Andy Wirth also acts as an intermediary between Lake Tahoe and the Reno-Sparks region.
Mr. Wirth explicitly expressed his honor in representing the RSCVA and joining, as chairman, an entity which he describes as vital to both regions’ economies. He briefly illustrated that enhancing the air service would play a significant role in the ski industry and both the gaming and business communities.
Andy Wirth, the grandson to former US National Park Service Director, Conrad Wirth, is the current Chief Executive Officer of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, which is the parent company of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows Ski Resorts situated in Olympic Valley, California. Mr. Wirth has had over 25 years’ worth of experience in the mountain resort and hotel industry by working at the Steamboat Springs Resort, Intrawest and Squaw Valley Ski Holdings.
