Metro Denver Economic Development Leader Tom Clark Announces Retirement

Tom Clark, Chief Executive Officer of Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation and Executive Vice President of Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, announced his retirement on January 11, 2017.

The economic development community, statewide and nationally, will greatly miss his leadership and dedication. Clark stands out as one of the Denver area's Magnificent Seven (later Crazy Eights), founding leaders in the regional approach to economic development that shaped growth since the 1980's. As he humbly stated when chosen as the Denver Post Business Person of the Year in 2012, "I haven’t done a single thing by myself. Everything I’ve accomplished has been part of a team effort.”

Best wishes to Tom in his retirement!

Tom Clark is always referred to as "The Economic Development Guru," and here, he takes on the role officially.
