The University of Colorado South Denver has announced the launch of an impressive new program, Journey to the Top | C-Suite Series, starting in November of this year. Kicking off this series is Andrew Rees, President and CEO of Niwot-based Crocs, Inc., the maker of one of the most iconic footwear silhouettes in the world. Rees will share personal stories from his two-plus decades in footwear and retail, including his pathway to Crocs, where he’s overseen the $1 billion brand’s transformation and growth efforts.
“I am thrilled to help CU South Denver kick-off what’s sure to be an educational speaker series,” Rees said. “I look forward to sharing my story in hopes of inspiring others in the community.”
Following a professional networking reception, Rees will accompany Jackie Millet, the mayor of Lone Tree, for an intimate fireside chat with discussions of his triumphs, challenges and lessons learned along his path to success. Members of the audience will have the opportunity to ask Rees their own questions as well.
“This new speaker series is just one of many ways that CU South Denver is bringing exceptional educational opportunities to our community and beyond,” said Millet. “We are proud to have them in Lone Tree, and it’s an honor to participate in the kick off session with Rees.”
Scot Chadwick, the vice chancellor of enterprise development for CU South Denver, states that this will be “an invaluable opportunity for professionals across the Denver Metro Area to further their own professional development and garner hands-on insights and learnings from a chief executive officer’s journey.”
The event will be held on Thursday, Nov. 29, from 5 - 7:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public with limited seating.
