Colorado Business Roundtable has appointed Debbie Brown as president. Brown will begin leading COBRT in January.

“Throughout all my work in Colorado, a common thread is my passion for economic public policy and opportunity,” Brown said in a news release. “When businesses flourish and produce jobs, families thrive. That’s why I’m so honored to be selected as the next president of the Colorado Business Roundtable.”

Previously, Brown was president of Amplify Strategies, a strategic communications and public policy consulting firm. At Amplify Strategies, she directed strategy development, messaging and marketing for businesses, nonprofit organizations, advocacy efforts and candidate campaigns of all sizes.

The Colorado Business Roundtable is an advocate for proactive, pro-business legislation that strengthens the economy and allows businesses to grow and thrive in Colorado and the region, the release said. COBRT is led by a board of directors, and the hiring of Brown will continue to position COBRT for an outstanding 2020 and beyond, the release said.

“We are excited to have Ms. Debbie Brown as our new president,” Roberta Robinette, outgoing board chair, who led the search committee, said in the release. “Debbie brings a wealth of policy knowledge and deep relationships that will help COBRT continue its voice as Colorado’s leading policy organization.”

During Colorado Business Roundtable’s fourth quarter board meeting, David Eddy with Boeing was selected as the new board chair for 2020. Eddy also participated in the search committee and is excited to welcome Brown as president.
