A Message From The President & CEO


Colorado is blessed with a business community that cares deeply about this state, its citizens and our shared future. The Western spirit is one where people come together and work hard to see that our tomorrows are always better than our yesterdays.

That balanced, bipartisan focus is what the members of Colorado Concern – as individual CEOs and as a united, forward-looking organization – have brought to critical public debates and issues over the years. We have succeeded in bringing Colorado together to face and surmount tough challenges.

Today is no different. As Colorado’s jobs climate continues to trend positively we are confronted with the opportunity to press forward and accelerate the adoption of the Colorado common-sense policy solutions that will place us first among the states – and a growing player in the global marketplace.

Colorado Concern’s leaders remain keenly focused on the Centennial State’s future. Our mission is to ensure that the decisions that are made by our elected leaders, and through the ballot box, are aligned with a vision that leads to a healthy, robust and growing economy.

That is the prism through which we evaluate the success of elected officials, and Colorado as a whole. We publicly applaud, and financially support, those candidates in either party who embrace a business- friendly legislative agenda.

At Colorado Concern, “corporate citizenship” is not just a buzz phrase. We strongly believe that the responsibility of business leaders is to become involved in the civic conversation, thereby being active and present in shaping the future of our wonderful state.

If you share this vision, we would welcome your ideas and your participation as a member of Colorado Concern.

We are fortunate indeed to live in a place where our economic vibrancy can and must match our unparalleled scenic beauty and quality of life. We invite you to join us in this vital mission.


Mike Kopp

President and CEO
