Divisive Battle To Incorporate Olympic Valley Is Officially Over

Finally the residents of Olympic Valley can breath a sigh of relief as the battle to incorporate their city is officially over.

According to an article published on the Reno-Gazette Journal website, the incorporation battle has been very divisive. While some in the community were for it, there were just as many who were against it.

Andy Wirth, the president and CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, LLC, was one of the locals who was totally against incorporating Olympic Valley. Wirth believed incorporating the city would have been a direct threat to both residents and businesses. In his opinion, such an effort would lead to higher taxes and a decrease in important services that local residents depend on.

To help fight incorporation efforts Squaw Valley Ski Holdings spent hundreds of thousands of dollars. Needless to say, incorporation backers were not happy Squaw Valley Ski Holdings was spending such a large sum of money to prevent them from incorporating the city.

Backers believe Wirth and his company had self involved motives and that’s the reason they put up so much money to prevent the incorporation from becoming a reality.

Fred Ilfield, the organizer of the incorporation drive, wrote in an email that he and many other people believe Squaw Valley Ski Holdings was opposing incorporation efforts because they didn’t want to have to answer to a future Town Council.

Wirth of course rejected this idea and made it very clear incorporation backers spent just as much as his company did.

Either way, when it boils down to it, it was the California Local Agency Formation Commission that decided the incorporation plan was not viable.

Now, with the incorporation battle behind them, Wirth hopes the community can heal and move on.

Who Is Andy Wirth?

Andy Wirth has been connected to the mountain resort and hotel industry for the majority of his life. He grew up around it and built his entire career around it – Squaw-Alpine boss looks to turn page on ‘divisive’ fight.

In 2010 he was officially named the new CEO of Squaw Valley ski resort. As soon as he took on the position, he was forced to deal with a $70 million upgrade project that was already in the works. The purpose of the upgrade was to ensure the resort was up to par and able to compete with other ski resorts in the industry.

Though this was a big project, Wirth had over 25 years of experience to fall back on. After being on the job for just one year Wirth was able to rebuild the reputation of Squaw Valley and get it back into the top 20 percent of ski resort.

Wirth is also a philanthropist and gives to environmental and community service organizations in and around the Lake Tahoe area.

Today’s modern woman is learning how to balance her family with her work life, they are said to have it all these days. Some run their own businesses while others work in the workplace balancing their hours to make sure that everything works. I can tell you firsthand how hard it is to work every day and still have plenty of time for my daughter. Women that are just getting started with the balancing game may want to look into direct selling because they are usually low risk but are quick and easy ways to start earning some income.

QNET India’s regional general manager Khaled Diab stated that QNET has always supported gender quality and commented that the nurturing quality of woman composed with their fierce spirit has been one great reason that QNET has been able to excel across the world.

It is true that women have a tenacity to succeed that men can only dream of. This is because a lot of women who are mothers want to be the best at everything so they can provide the best for their families. It is this extra instinctual drive that makes them hard to compete with. I know I was surprised by how much I wanted to excel for my daughter, but it is definitely there. I can see what the manager at QNET is saying, because motivated women with something to earn for will definitely sell much more than men that are just selling for the money or job.

Laid Off Accountant Sanjay Shah Starts Solo Capital


When you need a job but nobody will hire you, you can always hire yourself.

However, for most people that does not work out as well as it has for Sanjay Shah.

After losing his job as an accountant with an investment bank in the 2009 economic crisis, Sanjay Shah looked around at the financial carnage and saw few jobs he might qualify for, but lots of opportunities to profit. He started Solo Capital Markets as a brokerage firm.

In an interview with Global Citizen Magazine, Shah said he started out studying medicine, but then decided he didn’t want to be a doctor after all. Therefore, he became an accountant. He worked for such investment banks as Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley.

Shah grew Solo Capital until, for the year ending March 2011, Shah earned £19 million. He incorporated it in September 2011. Its specialties now include proprietary trading (foreign exchange, commodities and derivatives), consulting (investment, performance and human capital) and investments in professional sports teams (talent acquisition, commercial advisory & representation, asset & performance management).

Solo Capital Markets is an operating name for Outperform Capital Ltd, a private limited company registered in England and Wales, registration number 09579559. As of March 2015, Solo Capital Partners had a net worth of £15.45 million.

Shah has continued to expand his business empire. He is the founder and CEO of Solo Group Holdings, which controls Solo Capital Markets. Shah also owns Aesa S.a.r.l., which controls Solo Group Holdings. Shah also owns 36 other companies in Great Britain, Dubai the British Virgin Islands, Malta, Luxembourg and The Cayman Islands. In 2014 Shah and Solo Capital took over Old Park Lane Capital, the natural resources stockbroker.

Earlier that year, Mankash Jain left Solo Capital to work in Dubai with Shah. He was head of foreign exchange at Solo Capital Partners.

As of January 2016, Shah’s net worth amounts to US$280 million, and he considers himself retired.

However, work for Shah remains. He told Global Citizen Magazine he had sponsored children in India for ten years, and never thought he could do anything more for charity than that. In 2011, doctors diagnosed Shah’s 4-year-old son with autism. While drinking tea with Snoop Dogg, Shah realized he could raise both awareness of the neurodevelopmental disease and money to fund additional research by throwing benefit concerts. Therefore, Sanjay Shah founded Autism Rocks. They held the first Autism Rocks concert in 2014 starring Prince. Later concerts have included Drake, Lenny Kravitz, Michael Bublè and Snoop Dogg.

In June 2015, Shah paid $100,000 for the domain name Autism.Rocks. Since January 2013 Shah has served as a trust director of Autism Research Trust, which donates to Cambridge University’s Autism Research Centre.

Just think. Without the financial crisis, Shah might still be an accountant.
