Introducing Ent's New Board Officers

Photos of Ent's new Board Officers: Ron Martinez, Pam Nicholson, Bill Ayen, and Chris Vadala.

I am pleased to introduce our newly elected board officers: Ron Martinez – chairman; Pam Nicholson – vice chair; Chris Vadala – secretary (re-elected); and Bill Ayen – treasurer.

All four of these community leaders bring a tremendous wealth of knowledge and experience — both in and outside of our industry — to the board. Their guidance and expertise will be instrumental as we continue to grow along the Front Range.

If the name Ron Martinez, CFA, sounds familiar, it’s because he has served on our board since 2008. Ron was board treasurer from 2009 to 2012 and again from 2015 to 2019. Initially a credit analyst for the Colorado National Bank of Denver, he moved over to US WEST and ultimately served as the Director of International Finance. During his career, Ron was also managing director at UBS and president of The Brinson Foundation, Chicago. Currently a private investment manager of personal and family portfolios, he also volunteers for the Food Bank of the Rockies, Food Bank of Southern Colorado and the Colorado Mountain Club. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from the University of Denver and his MBA from Columbia University.

We are grateful for the time and talents of all of our board members.
