The Colorado Governors Fellows

The inaugural class of Colorado Governors Fellows is comprised of 22 executives from the business and nonprofit sectors. A broad range of industries (health, education, law, food, finance, tech and more) and geographic diversity (Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins, Grand Junction) are represented among this year's Fellows. The inaugural class represents the ambition, curiosity and professionalism that we hope to find in all future public leaders who will contribute to the growth and success of our state-- and beyond.
