Boulder Chamber Names Community Leaders to Board of Directors
The Boulder Chamber welcomes the following community leaders to its Board of Directors for the 2021 term: Ann Cooper, Realtor, ReMax Boulder; Amy Long, Owner and Operator, Nothing Bundt Cakes; Peter Marcus, Communications Director, Terrapin; and Kristen Moorefield, Director of Operations, Sparkfun.
“This is always an exciting time of the year for the Boulder Chamber,” said President and CEO John Tayer. “Our new Board Directors always bring a fresh perspective to our work and it gives us the opportunity to further extend our governance into the broad reach of our diverse business community.”
In addition, the Boulder Chamber also appointed Aparna Harris, Development Director, SPAN; and Jacquelyn Zampella, Insurance Risk Advisor, EAB Insurance Group, as new Advisory Members. These appointments reflect the opportunity for the Boulder Chamber to benefit from the perspective of its Leadership Fellows graduates and Bolder Young Professionals. “We want to make sure the voices of our developing leaders are at the table in all our decision making,” said Boulder Chamber Vice President Karen Kruse.
The Boulder Chamber Board of Directors also elected Boni Sandoval, Broomfield Market President at First Western Trust, to serve as Board Chair for 2021, and Bing Chou, Managing Director of Mojotech Boulder, to serve as Vice Chair. “In this most extraordinary time, the Boulder Chamber Board looks to continue partnering with the staff team in support of our mission of building community through business,” said Sandoval. “The priority focus in 2021 of a strong and inclusive economic recovery is central to success in that mission.”
The Boulder Chamber would also like to thank outgoing Board Chair Ted Rockwell, Senior Director of Marketing at University of Colorado Boulder’s Division of Continuing Education, for his years of service to the board. “It’s been an honor to serve in the Board Chair role during these troubling times,” said Rockwell. “The Boulder Chamber Board and staff team have been focused and united in the determination to support our businesses and lift our community. That work is making a positive difference, but as there is still much to do, I take comfort in knowing that the Boulder Chamber has strong leaders at the table to help overcome the challenges ahead.”
