DENVER – November 9, 2011 – Colorado Technology Association names four new prominent business leaders to their Board of Directors to help execute a more aggressive strategic plan for 2012, including the ongoing challenge for the IT industry to attract top talent, and legislative issues that impact the industry.  These new board members include:

James Caldwell - President of DeVry University Colorado.  James oversees 1,800 Associates, Bachelor’s and Master’s degree students and over 200 full and part-time professors, administration and staff for its Colorado campus.

Tim Higgins - CEO of Akalyst has over 23 years in sales, marketing and entrepreneurship experience.

Molly Rauzi - Director of Business Advisory Services for Grant Thornton, LLP.  Molly was previously Denver’s Chief Information Officer and led the governance process to support a $25 million technology project portfolio, replaced the city’s sales and use tax system, and designed the technology for Denver’s new Justice Center.

Teresa Taylor – Civic Leader and Former COO of Qwest, was responsible for Qwest’s daily operations of their Sales, Marketing, Network, and IT organizations. Taylor led the telecom giant through an acquisition, facilitating a $20 billion process while navigating the complexities of a large corporate merger.
