As the Vice President of Finance and Operations, Dave Suss leads the internal service team of the Chamber and its affiliates. Dave oversees finance and accounting, human resources, technology, facilities, membership services and the work of our Denver Metro Small Business Development Center.
Prior to joining the Chamber through the Denver Metro Chamber Leadership Foundation, Dave served as the director of programs and technology at the Kellogg Fellows Leadership Alliance, an alumni offshoot of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Before dedicating his career to nonprofit and leadership development, Dave spent time in the private sector working in corporate acquisitions, transitions, centralization and project management with an emphasis on database migrations, workflow management, business processes and stored value cards.
He earned a bachelor of arts degree in international affairs and German studies from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a master of arts degree in international management with a focus on finance from the Fachhochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht Berlin (Berlin School of Economics and Law).
You’ll see Dave in the community as an active volunteer. From 2008-2012, Dave volunteered as a legislative aid for two state representatives, working on policy analysis, creating websites and crafting communications. He currently serves on the board of directors for Spark the Change Colorado and is the Treasurer for the Kellogg Fellows Leadership Alliance. Outside the office, you’ll find Dave out for a ride on his bike, brewing beer and spending time with his wife and two children.
