Hermann Maier decides on a material change-over:

Welcome to the strong HEAD Racing Team

Kennelbach/Salzburg, 20 June 2007. Following an intense testing and negotiation phase, ÖSV Athlete Hermann Maier has announced today that he will go into the skiing season 2007/08 with HEAD as his official material provider.

Johan Eliasch, CEO HEAD NV, welcomes Herman Maier to the “HEAD Family” and expresses his sincere happiness about the decision of the 33-year-old: “Herman Maier has always been an absolute superstar. When we decided one year ago to give elite sports as the main driver of innovation an absolute priority in the course of the re-positioning of HEAD and to reorganise the team, Herman Maier was on top of my wishlist – he simply is a phenomenal skiing athlete.”

Maier perfectly represents the brand HEAD – as Miller, Cuche & Co.

Klaus Hotter, Executive Vice President HEAD Skiing Division, is also convinced that the exceptional athlete from Salzburg with an outstanding personality is a perfect fit for the existing strong team, which assembles such charismatic athletes like Bode Miller, Didier Cuche and Marco Büchel. Like them, Herman Maier embodies the character of the brand HEAD. “Apart from a clear claim to leadership regarding technology and innovation, HEAD stands for the emotion and passion for sports. This is 100% true for Herman Maier, who has become an almost supernatural figure due to his exceptional skills and unique career.”

Rainer Salzgeber: Happiness and respect for Maier’s decision

HEAD Racing Director Rainer Salzgeber holds Herman Maier’s step in high regard – as a former ÖSV-Athlete, he understands that the experienced sportsman has taken his time for the decision and is fully convinced that it has been the right one: “A change of material can boost your spirits and be a new and crucial motivator for experienced athletes – as demonstrated convincingly by Didier Cuche. He was more successful with HEAD in the past season than ever before ín his career and has never thought of ending it.”
