BRONCOS OWNER PAT BOWLEN SELECTED TO COLORADO BUSINESS HALL OF FAME

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen was selected to the Colorado Business Hall of Fame, it was announced this week by Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain, Inc. and the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce.

The first professional football owner with 300 wins in 30 years, Mr. Bowlen and the rest of the 2015 laureates, who represent Colorado’s most distinguished business leaders from the past and present, will be inducted at the 26th Annual Colorado Business Hall of Fame Dinner on Thursday, Jan. 29, at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center.

“Inclusion in the Colorado Business Hall of Fame is the pinnacle of success and recognition,” said Steve Kinsley, chairman of the Junior Achievement board of directors. “These leaders provide inspiration for future trailblazers and have left a legacy that reinforces the importance and value of the free enterprise system.”

Laureates were selected for their enduring and innovative professional contributions to Colorado, inspirational and ethical acumen and philanthropic endeavors. Joining Mr. Bowlen in the Class of 2015 are Klaus Obermeyer, Thomas A. Petrie and Bob & Joanna Sakata.

“The 2015 Colorado Business Hall of Fame class exemplifies the magnitude of what can be achieved through vision and determination,” said Bob Deibel, chairman of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce board of directors.

PAT BOWLEN’S COLORADO BUSINESS HALL OF FAME PROFILE:

After successful careers in oil, gas and real estate, Pat Bowlen purchased the Denver Broncos in 1984. Mr. Bowlen immediately put his own mark on the Broncos, establishing a solid administration and creating a positive atmosphere that has been a major factor in the team’s success both on and off the field.

Mr. Bowlen has fashioned a powerful reputation among his peers as a bold, dynamic leader who is single-minded in his pursuit of excellence, whether representing the Broncos, the city of Denver, the state of Colorado or the National Football League.

He presides over a franchise that by any standard has been one of the NFL’s most successful in his three decades of club ownership. A recent Harris Poll named the Broncos as America’s favorite team—a testament to the winning culture and first-class standards established by Mr. Bowlen.

No owner has appeared in more Super Bowls (6) than Mr. Bowlen, whose team has sold out every home game during his tenure (1894-pres.). In his three-plus decades with the Broncos, the club has amassed 314 overall wins, 18 winning seasons, 16 playoff berths, 11 division titles, eight conference championship game appearances and two World Championships.

Mr. Bowlen is chairman of the board of Denver Broncos Charities and in that capacity has donated more than $25 million to charitable organizations in the Denver area since the inception of that fund in 1993. He also served as the Honorary Chairman of the Colorado Special Olympics for 19 years and was the organization’s Outstanding Celebrity in 1993.
