Brent Neiser of Greenwood Village was appointed as a member of the Denver Foundation’s Economic Opportunity Committee.
The Denver foundation is Denver’s oldest and largest community foundation with over $820 million in assets.
Neiser will use his experience in personal finance, as an entrepreneur, and service in local/state/federal governments in this new volunteer role.
The foundation’s economic opportunity focus includes:
Building community wealth by developing and keeping economic resources in communities with below average income.
Supporting the most vulnerable residents of communities who are working to develop the local economy, including comprehensive job training.
Increasing access to capital for entrepreneurs and business owners who are unable to access traditional capital markets.
Last summer Neiser was appointed to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Consumer Advisory Board through 2020. He serves as chair of the City of Greenwood Village Parks, Trails and Recreation Commission and is an executive with the National Endowment for Financial Education.
