Announcing DAF’s new President & CEO

Dear Denver Architecture Foundation friends,

With this new year comes new leadership at Denver Architecture Foundation. On behalf of our board of directors, it is with great pleasure and excitement that I share the appointment of Meg Touborg as the new president and CEO of our organization.

Meg comes to DAF with a wealth of experience, knowledge, and vision. Throughout her 35-year career, she has been a founder, a fundraiser, and a director in the fields of fashion, architecture, design, and education. Most recently, Meg served as the development director of the University of Colorado Denver’s College of Architecture and Planning. Before that, she founded and led a boutique marketing agency in Los Angeles, specializing in business development for design-based businesses across the country. Meg also co-founded and co-directed innovative programming and events for the Leaders of Design Council, a national membership organization of top architects, landscape architects, and interior designers. Through these and other ventures across the country, Meg has proven herself a skilled and visionary leader with a first-hand understanding of how to lead and grow an organization.

As a board, we were inspired by Meg’s many accomplishments and her entrepreneurial spirit. Throughout the hiring process and her first weeks on the job, Meg has shown a keen eye and positive determination to help guide Denver Architecture Foundation to its fullest potential.

As our colleague and emeritus board member Alan Golin Gass says: “By bringing Meg Touborg on as president and CEO, the Denver Architecture Foundation is looking forward to a bright future. I fully expect to see a vigorous, transparent partnership with the DAF board in bringing a greater vitality to the existing programs of DAF and a greater outreach into the community. In addition, I am eagerly looking forward to creating new partnerships and improving existing relations with the architectural community, as well as the wider arts and culture communities of the Denver metropolitan area.”

We are confident that we have chosen a new CEO who believes in DAF’s mission and has the know-how to help us achieve that mission more thoroughly than ever. In the coming months, please expect to hear from Meg as we work together to usher in a new period of Denver Architecture Foundation’s progress and growth. In the meantime, please connect with Meg here.

Carolyn Riedlin, Chair of the Board Denver Architecture Foundation
