Andy Wirth: Moving On Up

Right now is a great time to be Andy Wirth, without a shadow of a doubt. He has had some big news and big changes in his life. However, Andy Wirth is the kind of individual that can handle it. They wouldn’t give him this type of responsibility if he couldn’t handle it.

He can definitely handle it and he isn’t afraid of the challenge. In fact, he looks forward to as a chance to grow and make some real changes. He takes this incredibly seriously, his role in all of this, and he knows he has to do the job the right way. He was recently elected chairman of the Reno-Tahoe Regional Air Service Corporation.

Andy Wirth comes with great experience which is sure to aid him in this new job. He has been responsible for the development of many airports and air services in the communities from Colorado to Quebec for major resorts.

As I mentioned previously, this experience is going to come in handy, as he will be ready to tackle whatever the job brings his way. What I like about this move is the fact that he has a lot of confidence and conviction. He cares about this and it means something to him.

He isn’t going to take it lightly and he isn’t going to slack off. He even said in a statement how important this is to their economy. I have a very good feeling about this hire, and I believe it is only going to improve the area and improve all aspects of air service.

Andy Wirth strikes me as the kind of guy that you could run into on the street and he would be more than happy to discuss all of this with you and explain it to you. I know a lot of people might not understand it or get it, but that is what he is here for, and he will excel because he wants to and this is something that is near and dear to his heart and he has the experience to back it up. They got it right this time.
