The Colorado Governors Fellows

The 2017-2018 class of Colorado Governors Fellows is comprised of 24 executives from all three sectors: business, nonprofit, and government. The Fellows represent a broad range of industries (health, tech, education, law, finance, manufacturing, philanthropy, and more) and geographic diversity (Alamosa, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins, Grand Junction) in Colorado. Building upon the success of the inaugural class, the second class of Colorado Governors Fellows embody the ambition, curiosity, passion, and professionalism we seek in all future public leaders who will contribute to the growth and success of our state.
