The younger wing of the GV/DTC Chamber of Commerce, which goes by DTC Young Professionals, held its sixth annual executive mentorship program at Lucy Restaurant at 5345 Landmark Place in Greenwood Village April 2. Sixty business professionals from the area participated in a speed-dating-type event where each mentee met with each mentor for four minutes, after which they were paired up with each other based on compatibility. The mentors will meet regularly with the mentees over the next year to offer continuing support and advice in career advancement.

Dennis Greene was introduced as the new executive director of the GV/DTC Chamber of Commerce.

Nimock introduced Dennis Greene as the new president and CEO of the DTC/Greenwood Village Chamber of Commerce. Greene served in the U.S. Air Force for 32 years, retiring at the rank of Colonel. He has been a Chamber member for two years. Greene told the group of mentors and mentees that his mission is to promote economic development, noting that Greenwood Village/DTC “is in the top 30 of economic zones in the United States.” He said, “My vision is to reach out to the 3,000 businesses in this area to be a part of the chamber. If we can grow and provide leadership, that is our job.” He said he’s met Denver’s Mayor Hancock and hopes to meet the mayors of Greenwood Village and Aurora soon.
