Information director wins resort award

Charlie Rossi, Sierra-at-Tahoe’s information technologies director, was selected as this year’s winner of the esteemed Golden Eagle Award from Sierra-at-Tahoe Mountain Resort.

Rossi continuously follows Sierra-at-Tahoe’s mission of Great Service, Great Value, Big Fun. He was selected by his peers to receive the award because he constantly demonstrates his commitment to the guest experience, his fellow employees, responsible resort operations, and financial performance — the cornerstones of the resort’s values.

Rossi brings more than six years experience in information technologies to the resort. Prior to joining Sierra-at-Tahoe in September 2000, he worked for Sanchez Computer Associates, an Internet banking firm in Philadelphia. On his first visit to Lake Tahoe in 1999, he fell in love with the place.

“Lake Tahoe’s slow paced lifestyle and relaxed culture was a huge draw for me,” said Rossi.

Although Rossi moved to Tahoe without knowing a soul, it didn’t take long for him to feel like part of a family. He met most of his friends at Sierra-at-Tahoe and his new wife, Caroline, works in the resort’s retail department. They were married in Costa Rica last July.

“It’s a great story,” said John Rice, Sierra-at-Tahoe’s general manager. “We interviewed Charlie over the Internet, he took the job and moved across the country, met his wife at the resort and within two years was voted Sierra’s Golden Eagle.”

“You can only be as strong as the people around you,” said Rossi. “Success is easy when you’re surrounded by great people.”

Other awards given to outstanding Sierra-at-Tahoe employees include the Silver Eagle, awarded to Paul Beran, lift operations supervisor, and the Bronze Eagle, awarded to Dennis Cambron, parking supervisor.
