This individual will manage an average annual legal spend of several million dollars, as well as the departmental legal staff and budget.

The Community

The SVP and General Counsel will have the opportunity to live and work in a world-class city that has something for everybody.

The city and county of Denver is the largest city and the capital of Colorado. Metro Denver has a population of 2.7 million people, with a growth rate that has consistently outpaced the national rate every decade since the 1930s. Denver has one of the nation’s strongest metropolitan economies and has the largest percentage of college graduates of any major metropolitan area in the United States.

Scratch the veneer of the new-West look of urban Denver and you will get a glimpse of the Old West, too. Sitting at 5,280 feet above sea level and framed by the Rocky Mountains, the Mile High City is a study in contrasts. Cowboy-hat-wearing ambassadors greet travelers at the city’s state-of-the-art airport. The golden dome of the state capitol overlooks downtown, where renovated historic buildings and architecturally striking modern structures stand side by side. Classic steak houses sit comfortably next to innovative eateries, with bold, young chefs creating culinary masterpieces. Denver is one of only two cities in America with eight professional sports teams. Upscale hotels, a booming arts and culture roster, family attractions, professional sports, the region's premier shopping areas, 850 miles of paved off-road biking trails and quick access to some of Colorado's major ski resorts and national parks keep visitors coming back again and again.
