His ability to work on complex policy issues in a bipartisan fashion has been a model for all. Colorado Business Roundtable is a powerful, leading business voice in Colorado thanks to Jeff’s passion, drive, and abilities. The Colorado business community owes Jeff a big debt of gratitude for all he has done for the business community and COBRT” commented Board President Roberta Robinette, AT&T.

“Serving the business community in Colorado as President of COBRT has been one of the greatest professional experiences of my career” commented Jeff Wasden, President of Colorado Business Roundtable. “I have thoroughly enjoyed representing the business community these past years and am so proud of all that we have accomplished. Colorado is blessed with so many incredible leaders, and it has been a privilege to have been able to work with not only such great individuals, but also some amazing organizations, associations, and chambers. Our Board and staff are incredible assets for not only COBRT, but the broader business community and I am so honored to have worked alongside them these past years to make COBRT the leading organization it is today.
