Josh is a Colorado native, born and raised in Denver. As a student of innovation and an advocate of sustainability, he co-founded the Green Bank of Colorado in July of 2017. He sat on the Differed Maintenance & Sustainability Board as a Sustainability Advisor and was the Co-Chair of the Green Action Fund for the University of Colorado. After graduating with a Bachelor of Innovation in Business Administration and a Minor in Economics, Josh continues to build the next generation of financial institutions that work with the environment instead of against it. His admiration for the natural world and need to protect it are at the forefront of his professional career and is the primary source of his passion.
Jack, raised in Denver, Colorado, is a strong proponent for the betterment of the state, the US, and the world. His love for the sprawling forests and wild Rocky Mountains of Colorado drives him to constantly seek the improvement of society’s connection to nature; and through this connection he sees the unique possibilities to raise the standard, even normalize, co-existing with the natural world. He co-founded the Green Bank of Colorado in 2018 and has gained experience in Solar energy design and contracting. Since graduating from the University of Denver with a BSBA in Finance, Jack’s ultimate goal has been to bridge the finance industry with the health of the environment so that the success and growth of one inherently means the same in the other.
