I am a seasoned professional with a focus on sales, operational management, team leadership, internal business development and growth, and process improvement I especially enjoy the culture and environment within the ski resort industry. During my first ski trip to Utah from my home state of Wisconsin as a 17-year-old high school student, I was enamored with the mountains. Yes, it was about skiing, but it was really a spiritual pilgrimage that enticed me to move west after college.
I have lived in the Rocky Mountain West for over 30 years in a variety of ski towns. I understand how important it is to maintain the culture in a resort village-like Angel Fire. Growth is inevitable but chaos is avoidable.
I believe that promoting Angel Fire can be achieved in a respectful and reasonable manner without losing our values. Above all else, I believe serving the community empowers our citizens to welcome our tourists with open arms.
I welcome positive feedback and options about what those values should be. Let’s call it a mission statement for the Village of Angel Fire Tourism department. Send me your ideas and I will consider them for the Visitor Center’s best practices. I’ll begin… with the lyrics from an old song. “Slow down, you move too fast…you got to make the morning last!”
The Village of Angel Fire is excited to welcome Michael to our team. The Visitor Center, located at 3407 Mountain View Blvd, in Centro Plaza, co-officing with the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce, is now open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Our goal is to hire another assistant to aid Michael and also make a call out to volunteers, to help us move the Visitor Center toward opening 7 days a week. Welcome Michael!
