Ski Racing magazine’s Bryce Hubner recently interviewed Rusty Heise, a former ski racer who now manages Global Rescue’s partnership with the U.S. Ski Team and represents the company within the skiing community at large. Here’s what Bryce had to say:

Guns are trained on you at every corner in a far-off nation, where you were working to ameliorate poverty and hunger before a military coup overthrew the democratic government. The border’s closed and there’s no escaping the country — at least, not without help.

Or maybe you’re in the Andes on an expedition to summit a 20,000-foot peak. Unexpected snow hammers your team and four of you — tethered to the same rope — tumble hundreds of feet from the ridge you were traversing. You’re badly injured and need to be evacuated.

The world can be a crazy, inhospitable place, and if you find yourself in  a crisis far from home, it’s nice to have Rusty Heise and Global Rescue working on your behalf.

Heise was an alpine standout on the NCAA circuit before graduating from Dartmouth College in 2009. He’s now among the youngest business administrators at Boston-based Global Rescue LLC, a company that provides medical security evacuation and crisis response services for those in need — they might pluck you from that dicey, third-world country after a government coup, or rescue you from that Andean summit gone awry…

In addition to handling the U.S. Ski Team, Heise works in sales and member services with ski academies and clubs across the country. To some degree, he says, it’s an easy sell because there are so many tangible examples that show the value of Global Rescue’s services…
