January 12, 2013
Steamboat Springs — MWH Global, a consulting and technical engineering firm, has elevated Steamboat Springs resident Alan Krause to the role of president and chief executive officer.
The firm's executive chairman, Robert B. Uhler, stepped down from that role and became chairman emeritus Dec. 14.
Uhler's move to chairman emeritus represents the culmination of a leadership transition that began in November 2011, when Uhler and the company selected Krause to take over as president and chief executive officer. In addition to his current role, Krause was named chairman of the board of directors in December 2012.
"I have great admiration for Bob's energy and accomplishments, and his leadership has been pivotal in the growth of MWH into a truly global enterprise," Krause said.
Christy Sports observes store's 40th anniversary
Christy Sports is celebrating its 40th year of business at its flagship store in Steamboat Springs' Gondola square.
"We are proud to be celebrating 40 years of service in the Gondola Square location, which is a remarkable feat given the ups and downs of the ski and snowboard industry," Keith Liefer, Christy Sports' COO, said in a news release.
The Gondola Square location at one time was the flagship location for SportStalker, a ski and snowboard retail shop that merged with Christy Sports in 1996.
"This shop has seen a lot of improvement since the early '90s, and it has been a lot of fun to be a part of it," said Chuck O'Connell, the Gondola Square store manager since the 1993-94 winter season.
