On behalf of the Chamber Board of Directors, the Executive Committee and Executive Committee Co-Chair Trey Rogers, I am pleased to announce that we have appointed recognized business leader J. J. Ament as our new Chamber President and CEO. J. J. brings proven leadership to his new role along with financial acumen, a deep understanding of what organizations and communities need now to succeed, and pro-business passion to create a climate for growth and opportunity.
We choose J. J., in part, for his previous experience working within the Chamber ecosystem and oversight of the state’s largest private sector economic development organization. His intimate knowledge of the Chamber, the business community and the region is invaluable for bringing stability, continuity and consistency to our complex organization. He demonstrated to the Executive Committee his readiness to lead and presented a vision that clearly articulated the Chamber’s future.
“It’s a great privilege and responsibility to continue the collaborative, inclusive and bipartisan leadership of the Chamber, representing the diverse voices of our vibrant community to create advantages for Denver-based businesses.”
– J. J. Ament, President and CEO, Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce
