Andrew Wirth has been working tirelessly towards clean energy, and all this work is finally beginning to pay off. Not long ago, the Reno City Council cast a vote in support of the Clean Power Plan, which hopefully will take the country from coal power to a new, cleaner and renewable energy. That vote made the council another significant member that gives support to the Clean Power Plan. Times have already changed a lot, and a better economy is rising, and bringing us cleaner energy. Our region has unacceptably poor air quality, along with the drought and increase in forest fires.
Andrew Wirth was born on the twenty-fifth of July and makes a living in the mountain resort and hotel industry. At the moment, he is the President and CEO of the Squaw Valley Ski Holdings. He has worked in this industry for more than twenty-five years now. Wirth’s career started with the Steamboat Springs Resort back in 1986, and he served in quite a few different leadership and marketing positions there, and at its parent companies. Wirth has also received a few professional and community service awards, not limited to the Chairman’s Outstanding Service Award, and the Community Five Award, along with many others. He strives to make the ski area a great tourist destination, and to give truly clean energy to the area as a replacement for coal.
After having his arm ripped off in a skydiving accident where he missed the designated landing area, instead landing on a fence of metal posts and wire, his arm was surgically reconnected, and Andy Wirth helped to co-found an Ironman team, “Wounded Warrior Support.” Which honors the men of the Navy SEALs, and supports them and their families after they return to their homes. Andy Wirth has contributed a lot to the Lake Tahoe community service and environmental organizations, which focus on improving the area for the general population.
