From a Volkl press release 

Völkl mourns longtime company owner

Franz Völkl has died, this past Saturday, July 26 2014

Franz Völkl was a passionate inventor and always the most enthusiastic ski tester.
The company Völkl was his life's work. Started from humble beginnings in 1952, he managed the business over 40 years and led it to worldwide success.
We owe him a great debt of gratitude and are very proud to continue and further develop the company. 


 

Photo cred, Volkl Skis

A great man and a great company. Only the best materials and construction. 

Gotta love a Volkl!

Sorry to hear of his passing, but what an outstanding legacy! I became a convert a few seasons ago and am on Völkls most of the season. Rest well Herr Völkl!
