On January 31, 2024, David Worley, currently Senior Vice-President of Denver South, will become its new President and Chief Executive Officer. Worley joined the organization in February 2023. He came to Denver South after nearly 18 years at the University of Denver, where he served as adjunct faculty Vice-President of Institutional Advancement and Enrollment at the Iliff School of Theology, and most recently as Executive Director of Executive Education at the Daniels College of Business. He holds a Ph.D. from D.U. in leadership, cultural, social, and monetary theory.
Worley will take over from current President and CEO Tom Brook, who said, “It has been a pleasure to work with the staff, board of directors, and wider community during my time at Denver South,” adding, “I am confident in David’s ability to lead the organization and I look forward to seeing the team continue the great work for the region under David’s leadership.”
Board Chair Sam Inman said of Brook, “Tom will certainly be missed…I want to thank him for his immeasurable contributions during his tenure.”
Denver South “has been the nexus between public and private sectors for more than three decades, driving forward regional collaborations to make this one of the premier places in the world to start, grow, and locate a business.” Its primary focuses are transportation and economic development in and around the I-25 corridor going south from Belleview Station. The organization brings together government, business, and community leaders to work collaboratively for the success of all.
