We will also explore new creative opportunities in close collaboration with our advertising partners to generate innovative and culturally relevant campaigns that are truly responsive to the region’s economic and demographic growth, while also meeting the evolving demands of Denver’s business community. I also want to thank my amazing team in New York for their unyielding support and pursuit of excellence over the past 11 years.”
