BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Doug’s love for cars and all things motorized began at birth, and he’s been tinkering, tweaking, tricking out and driving cars all over the country ever since. Currently a Land Rover owner of a KTM 990 Adventure, Doug Landin is a New York native but has lived in Vail for 35 years – making him essentially a local (it takes that long). He taught skiing for 22 years and has been a real estate broker with Slifer, Smith & Frampton Real Estate since 1995. He currently serves as Chairman for the Vail Board of Realtors and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Vail Automotive Classic.
Gene Bygd – Board of Directors
One of the less outspoken but very productive members of the Board, Rich loves to travel and is the quintessential outdoorsman. Vail provides the perfect landscape for his love of four-wheeling, and he often takes his Range Rover out to the back country to camp. While his wife drives a fuel efficient Prius, he also has a Honda Shadow cruiser and a KTM EXC 450 dirt bike. He started dirt biking as a kid and quickly developed an affinity for anything with a motor and wheels. Rich has traveled extensively both nationally and internationally and hopes someday to own a 1969 Camero Convertible RS/SS. Anyone selling??
Taylor has been “herding” this crew since 2012 and keeps the behind the scenes show planning, marketing, PR, and operations moving forward each year. Taylor brings over 20 years of experience serving clients from multiple industries in marketing, branding, and events to the Vail Automotive Classic. She is not a total “gearhead” yet, but will be before we are done with her.
