April 25: ‘Meet the Founder’ Distinguished Speaker- Kim Jordan, Co-Founder of New Belgium Brewing!

We are excited to announce that Kim Jordan, Co-Founder, Executive Chair of the Board  and former CEO of New Belgium Brewing will be sharing with us- her story, values and journey at the College of Business ‘Meet the Founders’ Distinguished Leadership Series and the Provost’s Ethics Colloquium.

Kim has developed expertise at the intersection of business, the environment and community to create one of the most respected craft breweries and innovative businesses in America. Her lifelong commitment to developing healthy communities has informed New Belgium’s culture through progressive policies like employee ownership, open-book management, and philanthropic giving. In more than a quarter century as an entrepreneur, Kim has spoken to thousands of people in the business, nonprofit, and academic worlds about how to create a vibrant and rewarding work culture that enhances the bottom line.

Kim has been a director on many diverse Boards over the years including The Brewers Association, 1% for The Planet and The Governor’s Renewable Energy Authority Board. She currently participates on the Board of Governors for Colorado State University and the Advanced Energy Economy.  She serves on Boards where she believes her progressive business philosophy can make a difference on important issues.

Now as the Executive Chair, Kim serves as a link between New Belgium’s highly competent and engaged management group and its Board of Directors. She continues to champion foundational aspects of New Belgium that make it a business role model with fresh thinking about progressive business practices and the marketplace of the future. Kim works to represent New Belgium, speaking with brewers, business people and legislators about the power of progressive business to make positive change in the world.  Kim and her two sons launched the New Belgium Family Foundation in 2013 as a way to continue to express their commitment to social and environmental impact through mission-aligned investing and philanthropy.
