Hank Tauber is an influential sport builder who had a dramatic impact as a U.S. Ski Team leader, global ski equipment business owner and serving over three decades with the International Ski Federation (FIS).
Between 1967-79, he was a stabilizing force in an often tumultuous era for the U.S. Ski Team. His athletes won an unprecedented eight Olympic and World Championship medals. As owner of Marker from 1981 to 1999, he elevated the company to become a global leader growing it from 1% to 50% market share, while raising annual revenue from $15-million to $150-million. He served as a FIS Vice President from 1988-2002.
