Press Release: Boulder, Colo. December 6, 2011- The Association of Freeskiing Professionals (www.afpworldtour.com) is excited to welcome Eric Zerrenner as our new Executive Director. Zerrenner has over 18 years of experience in marketing, sales and business development, within and beyond the ski industry.

"I am honored to join the AFP and continue the mission of progressing the sport while maintaining its authenticity, creativity and culture,” said Zerrenner. “The AFP founders have worked hard and accomplished a lot in a short time, demonstrated by athlete and industry support, and the global acceptance of the AFP World Ranking System, judging clinics and the AFP World Tour. As we approach the Olympics and beyond, the next few years will be crucial in the movement of freeskiing. I am excited about that challenge and I look forward to working with the athletes, industry leaders, our partners and the AFP Board in representing our sport and our athletes to the world."
“Some of you may know Z, as he is more widely known, from his days working in the industry at K2.
