Founded in September of 2009, the Denver Executive Association is an invitation-only peer networking group exclusively for business owners and high-level executives. We meet twice-monthly for breakfast in the beautiful Gottesfeld Room in the Ritchie Center at Denver University.

Modeled after the International Executive Organization, the Denver Executive Association focuses on growing business through building trust and relationships, not through passing cold carbon-copied leads and scorekeeping.

At the Core of the DEA:

  • Developing a network of Trusted Advisors
  • Personal access to other CEO’s and Executives
  • Sharing of best practices
  • Gaining access to critical market intelligence, before it becomes public
  • Exclusive membership
  • Pre-qualification and screening of all members
  • Consistent attendance to well organized and productive meetings
  • Share confidential business referrals

“As a nonprofit partner, and a relatively new nonprofit in Colorado, DEA members have presented Colorado Young Leaders (CYL) with valuable connections in area high schools and with potential business and nonprofit partners. Additionally, DEA members have a wealth of knowledge in business principles, marketing concepts and legal and strategic advice as CYL solidifies its model and plans for growth. The support CYL has received from DEA members not only impacts CYL as an organization but supports our mission of creating the next generation of leaders.”
