It is with mixed emotions that Tecnica announces that Bart Tuttle has made the decision to leave the Tecnica Group after 30 years of dedicated service. While Tecnica will miss Bart and his significant contribution to Tecnica’s boot development, we are excited for Bart to take some time for himself while he pursues his many creative passions. Bart’s last day was Friday, June 1st.

Bart has lived and breathed the Tecnica brand as well as the art and science of ski boot design for the majority of his life. He is an icon in the industry and his insights and experience have been critical to the ongoing success of Tecnica. Bart’s relentless push to set a newer, higher standard for Tecnica ski boots has directly led to the global strength of the Tecnica collection.

“I can’t even begin to express how fortunate I feel to have been a part of this great company that has helped mold me as a person and has given me such incredible life experiences and friendships,” said Tuttle. “I am extremely grateful, so thank you to everyone. I am looking forward to not having a travel bag half-packed and ready to go, sitting in my living room!”

“It’s difficult to put into words the significance of Bart’s contribution over the past three decades,” said Blizzard/Tecnica Director of Product Marketing, Jed Duke. “He has taught me everything I know about ski boots. His experience, knowledge, and personality will be truly missed. It has been a pleasure working with you, Bart!”

Please join us in saying “thank you” to Bart for all of his hard work and passion. We wish him the very best for the future and expect to see him in the office whenever he is in the area. Bart will forever be a member of the Blizzard/Tecnica family!
