Colorado Technology Association (CTA) is pleased to announce the selection of its new CEO, Andrea J. Young, a dynamic technology executive with more than 20 years experience driving innovation and growth for multiple industries within the Colorado tech economy.
Young began her career building state of the art telecommunications platforms for commercial real estate in the Denver Tech Center. From there, her career led her to two highly impactful periods as Chief Information and Chief Technology Officer, first with Janus Capital Group and second with BI Incorporated, a GEO Group Company.
In addition to her primary responsibilities as a technology executive, Young has been an active leader within the industries and communities she has served. Young is no stranger to CTA.
