Hartmut Wimmer, the founder and CEO of Outdooractive, is one of the trail blazers in the digitization of outdoor tourism with over two decades of business experience.
Founding his own engineering company in 1994 and successfully concluding several challenges in architecture, Hartmut decided to concentrate on touristic infrastructure. As he saw himself confronted with plenty of problems when it comes to planning trips, he decided that it was time to find a solution to gather all necessary information and data in one place – and so he founded Outdooractive in 2008. Ever since Hartmut has been striving to create the world’s largest outdoor platform simultaneously connecting the community and all players in the outdoor tourism sector with cutting-edge technology. As Hartmut himself is a great outdoor enthusiast his major concern was to build a virtual home for like-minded people sharing their experiences and their adventures in the great outdoors.
Hartmut holds a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Munich and has personally contributed to the success and growth of the Outdooractive platform by sharing hundreds of his trips and trails on outdooractive.com.
