Steve Boyd starts job as new Gwood finance director
March 18, 2017
Steve Boyd, who grew up in Glenwood Springs and spent the last eight years in the business office at Colorado Mountain College, is the new city finance director, replacing Charles Kelty who left last fall to take another job. Boyd has been in his new position since March 1.
A 1987 graduate of Glenwood Springs High School, Boyd's experience includes 20 years in the investment banking and corporate finance fields, including working as the executive vice president for Private Equity Capital Partners and director of finance for the Denver-based Quiznos Corporation. He also worked for eight years in purchasing for Colorado Mountain College.
In 2009, he moved back to Glenwood Springs for the CMC position. There, he was responsible for negotiating and managing college-wide vendor agreements, executing grants and contracts, and managing the purchasing and accounts payable departments. He also teaches finance and economics at CMC.
Boyd holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, and a master's of business administration in/finance from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
"I love the city of Glenwood Springs," Boyd said. "Having an opportunity to contribute to its ongoing development is just too good to pass up, especially at this exciting time.
"Leaving CMC was a difficult decision," he added. "The college's star is on the rise, the leadership team is exceptional and it's a phenomenal place to work."
