Published

on

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Ober Gatlinburg, Inc. President Bruce Anders last Friday, January 8. Anders served as President of the family-owned and operated business since 2009.

Anders first began his career at Ober Gatlinburg, Inc. on September 16, 1992 and worked in many capacities during his 29-year tenure. He was elected the third president of Ober Gatlinburg, Inc. on April 1, 2009 following in the footsteps of brother Cy and father, Claude Anders, company founder.

Anders’ hands-on style of management had him involved in every aspect of day to day operations. It also gave him a deep appreciation for the employees.

Anders served as Vice President of the Southeast Ski Areas Association. He was an avid supporter of the Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains and an advocate for Tennessee Special Olympics, which holds their winter games at Ober Gatlinburg each year.

Vice Presidents and co-owners, Rex, Kent and Keith Anders will continue to operate Ober Gatlinburg, Inc.

The owner and founder of The Smoky Mountain Life, Kim Hunt, is a lifelong resident of southeast Tennessee and lover of all things Smoky Mountains.
