Steve Peterson, CO SD-30
Running for: CO Senate District 30 (Douglas County)
Steve grew up on the front range and is proud to call Senate District 30 home. He believes we have a lot to be proud of as Coloradans – not just in our beautiful parks, rivers, and mountains; but also in our sense of community.
Steve’s entire professional career has been dedicated to leading significant change and to helping companies in crisis. He has been part of a small group of strategy consultants who focused on the travel and transportation sectors. In this role, he helped large and medium sized companies make decisions about matters as diverse as deciding what markets to enter, figuring out how to improve their products and services, and establishing winning long-term strategies. He has advised many companies and their leaders through very difficult times, and helped several effect painful but necessary turn-arounds that allowed them to navigate bankruptcy, cut costs, and ultimately stay in business. Most of his career has been dedicated to managing crises of one form or another.
Although the company he first joined underwent significant changes, including several mergers and acquisitions, Steve remained committed to the team that hired him for 18 years. This commitment and hard work has paid off because he is now regarded as one of the preeminent thinkers in the travel and transportation industries. He spends time thinking and writing about the industries he serves, and has had the opportunity to speak to national and international audiences on subjects of interest in this field.
