Following a successful first year of team work, HEAD Snowboards now intensifies its cooperation with Peter Bauer according to plan.

“The progress, above all in product development, has more than fulfilled our expectations,” according to Klaus Thurner, HEAD Snowboards Division Manager. “With Peter’s longtime development experience, we were able to perfectly integrate the INTELLIGENCE„¢ Technology into the snowboards and the result speaks for itself — even before the start of the season, our INTELLIGENCE Board was awarded the gold medal “Overall” by the French magazine Rider.

Peter Bauer, repeat World and European Champion, joined HEAD Snowboards in October 2002 and, in addition to his function as active freerider, is also involved as an advisor in marketing as well as R&D in all product areas.

For his commitment, he will receive an equity stake in the HTM Group, which has been listed on the Vienna and New York stock exchanges since 1999. “With this step, we are strengthening our long-term relationship, thereby reciprocating our mutual investment in the partnership,” commented Florian Weingà¤rtner, Marketing Director, HEAD Snowboards.
