Not many people get the opportunity to work with an icon in their industry, let alone an icon in two industries. Those of us who’ve had the opportunity to work for Viktor Weyand know what a force of nature the man can be; and there are hotel and incentive suppliers around the world that know it as well. What you might not know, however, is that our former “fearless leader” got his start on the ski slopes in his native Austria, and that is actually how he ended up in northern Michigan.
Viktor recently had the opportunity to reunite with a few of his former ski colleagues in Aspen and you can read about some of their exploits in this article from The Aspen Times. But if you want to hear the REAL back story, I suggest you track Viktor down (I know, it isn’t easy. He is still a veritable globe trotter.), buy him a glass of white wine and just let him reminisce. You won’t be disappointed, and I guarantee you will be entertained. Besides talking about skiing, he might also tell you how the incentive industry is booming and try to convince you to put together an incentive travel program. Cheers to you, Viktor!
