“The Role of Denver International Airport in Denver’s Growth and Development”
Kim Day, Chief Executive Officer, Denver International Airport
Tuesday, March 8, 2016
5:30 – 7:00 pm
CAP Building, 1250 14th Street Denver, CO 80202
Kim Day began leading Denver International Airport, “the fifth-busiest commercial airport in the United States,” in April 2008. Reappointed to her position as the chief executive officer in 2011 by Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, she has continued her vision for the region’s primary economic engine. Since her tenure began, she has overseen an update to the airport’s master plan and set in motion the program that is completing its original vision: adding an airport hotel and transit center. With more than 35 years of experience, Ms. Day has served as executive director of Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) — the agency that manages Los Angeles International Airport, Ontario International Airport, Van Nuys Airport, and Palmdale Regional Airport. Before assuming the top position with LAWA, she oversaw the agency’s design and construction.
After receiving a Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) degree from Cornell University, Ms. Day practiced architecture for more than 20 years. In 2011, she was named Airport Director of the Year in the large/medium airports category by Airport Revenue News and recognized by Visit Denver in 2011 and 2012 for Outstanding Contributions to Tourism. From 2010-2015, the Denver Business Journal named her one of its annual Power Book finalists–a designation that honors the top men and women newsmakers in the business community. The Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce honored Ms. Day as one the “25 Most Powerful Women in Denver” in 2013. In 2015, Colorado Biz Magazine named her a finalist for its CEO of the Year award, and she was nominated by Commercial Real Estate Women of Denver as the organization’s “Entrepreneur Woman of Influence.”
Kim will present on The Role of Denver International Airport in Denver’s Growth and Development. It should be a great presentation and discussion, and just 6 weeks before RTD’s A Line opens to the public!
Kim’s presentation will be held in the 2nd Floor reception area on Tuesday, March 8. Light appetizers will be served starting at 5:30 PM with Kim’s presentation beginning at 6:00 PM and ending around 7:00 PM.
Cost: Free and open to the public.
