It was quite a feat when the South Metro Denver Chamber and Colorado Consular Corps Collaboration took place at Lone Tree Arts Center. To have so many literally on stage at one time was due to the leadership of the chamber’s President/CEO Bob Golden, EVP Doug Tisdale and business mogul Larry Mizel, who welcomed the corps and distinguished guests, including several mayors and surrounding area officials.
The trio thanked partners and sponsors such as MDC Richmond American Homes, the Ruschmeyer Corp, CSU Global, Merrick Engineering, CU South Denver, Colorado Business Roundtable and NexGen. On hand were Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne and Stephanie Copeland, executive director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade. A special welcome was extended to the new consuls general of Japan and Mexico.
According to Hon. Russian Consul General and Dean of Colorado Consular Corps Deb Palmieri, “Colorado has one of the strongest economies in the country with a favorable tax system, transportation network, and one of the most active consular corps.”
