Named to Forbes' Best in State Wealth Advisors list for 2019, Keefe Gorman is a Certified Financial Planner who serves as managing director at an Ithaca, New York, Merrill Lynch affiliate. A former collegiate skier at St. Lawrence University, Keefe Gorman continues to ski as part of the World Pro Ski Tour (WPST).
The WPST is a dual alpine skiing tour that includes events in the US and Canada with Olympic-caliber athletes. In addition to hosting these events, the WPST operates a podcast that features interviews with some of the biggest names in skiing. The guest on its most recent edition was Bernhard Knauss, who holds the distinction as the only skier to surpass $1 million in career earnings on the pro tour.
A native of Austria, Knauss failed to win a medal at the 1988 Winter Olympics and had limited World Cup success, but was a standout on the U.S. Pro Tour in the late 1980s and 1990s. He retired toward the end of the 20th century with nearly $1.5 million in earnings.
On the podcast, Knauss discusses his initial move to the US and what made him so successful in the dual-skiing format. In addition, he talks about former competitors like Phil Mahre and discussed some ways in which the WPST can grow in popularity.
