It wasn’t too long ago that Denver was still considered a cow town. That’s all changed now, thanks to those who saw the city’s potential. But it took more than vision, it required brave leadership to guide Denver into it’s place as a world class city.
As President and CEO of the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation, Tom Clark would never accept any credit, but his leadership inspired the spirit of cooperation that transformed Denver’s economy and overall growth.
Combined with attracting cutting edge industries, such diversification provides a strong, long-term economy that provides good jobs.
In order to build that economy, Clark focused on collaboration, and avoiding political turmoil by establishing a code of ethics shared by surrounding communities. Denver and neighboring towns worked together to attract businesses, build DIA, creating FasTracks, sports stadiums and more. For all of these advancement, Clark credits the remarkable “Grace, humility and teamwork” displayed by all of the leaders in Denver’s metropolitan community.
