Governor names new executive director for Colorado Department of Revenue

“Michael places high priority on those operations that serve the public,” said Governor John Hickenlooper. “He brings extensive banking experience and organizational management to the role. Perhaps more importantly, this opportunity is a bit of a coming home as he served in  Colorado’s inaugural Governor’s Fellowship Class.”

He has held previous leadership roles at GE Capital, GE Antares Capital, Archstone-Smith REIT, Bank of the West and Pi Kappa Phi Properties, Inc. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at the University of Colorado – Boulder and his master’s degree in Business Administration at the University of Chicago.

“I am incredibly honored to follow in Barb Brohl’s footsteps and look forward to building on the foundation of success she and the Department’s employees have achieved over the last six years,” said Hartman. “The Department of Revenue engages with every Colorado citizen through its various operations and I look forward to helping the talented team of employees keep the best interests of the Colorado citizenry at the center of every decision the Department makes.”

Hartman joins the Administration on July 31, 2017.
