Now that we’re welcoming people back to the Chamber building, we’re excited to introduce you to some of the new faces you’ll see here.
Katherine Rizzuto joined the Chamber as vice president, sales and investor strategy in April 2021 and has now doubled her sales team. Steve Jorgensen and Todd Cameron began their roles in Enterprise Sales with the Chamber in July. (Send Steve or Todd an email to welcome them to the Chamber family.)
Steve and Todd serve as Enterprise Sales Directors . They join the Business Development Sales team who you already know: Kathryn Williams and Robert Kross. Kathryn and Robert will continue to serve members at the Gold Level and below, while the Enterprise Sales Team will handle the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation Executive Committee, Patron, Sustainer and Trustee level members.
The work of the sales team is geared toward ensuring even more of our members realize all that the Chamber offers its members in the building at 14th & Market and beyond – from understanding the economic impact of public policy decisions and developing the next generation of Denver leaders to devising strategies to create an economy that works for us all.
“We are both the tip of the spear and the shield for businesses,” added Steve. “We need our members’ voice in the equation. It’s not just what we gain from your membership, but what you gain from our resources.”
Steve’s experience in very large enterprises and start-ups will lend itself to serving our existing members and recruiting new members across sectors and industries. (If you’re interested in speaking with Steve about how joining the Chamber can impact your company, reach out via email).
The Chamber’s membership represents almost every sector and industry that’s present in Denver, which is why the diverse community that Chamber members create is so collaborative.
After calling Denver home for 16 years, Todd’s looking forward to hitting the ground running, and is particularly interested in ways to support the hospitality industry – where he began his career – and Denver’s continually growing tech community. (If you’re interested in speaking with Todd about how joining the Chamber can impact your company, reach out via email).
“A lot of what we do at the Chamber creates the environment and meetings where our members can connect,” said Todd. “Our members do not need to do the heavy lifting to get involved with the community and exchange ideas. The opportunity for connections and collaboration exists inherently within the Chamber.”
Time and time again, Chamber members have exemplified exactly what Todd highlighted: you share leads, exchange best practices and support one another in times of crisis. The community you create is irreplaceable, and Steve and Todd have the great task of making that community even greater.
