The Otto Group

Mr. Chuck Otto, of the “Otto Group” is the primary sponsor of the climbing portion of the expedition. A longtime supporter of his two son’s explorations and adventures, Chuck is no stranger to a life of adventure. A Hungarian immigrant, he escaped from his home country in 1956 when the Soviets invaded. After spending several months in an Italian refugee camp he sailed to Canada. For several years he worked in British Columbia in the forestry industry, the railroad, and agriculture before traveling to Toronto to return to his professional training in architecture.

Chuck is an avid outdoorsman enjoying skiing, swimming, camping, boating, and general outdoor manual labour! Upon retiring from his career in commercial architecture, he has become a successful entrepreneur. He will be following his two sons on Everest closely via phone, video conference and the expedition website.
