It took an exhaustive search, but the hiring committee at the Conifer Chamber has found their ideal candidate for the critical position of executive director. Join them in welcoming Britni LeRoux, an energetic force of nature with an impressive history of membership and nonprofit work, community engagement and facilities management. And yes, she is a local!
Britni comes to the Conifer Chamber of Commerce from Wings Over the Rockies, where she managed two museum stores, 300 volunteers, 20 visitor services staff members, public programs, community initiatives and guest experience. She also managed day-to-day execution of the long-term and short-term strategic plans, annual budgets and event management. In short, she has tons of experience doing pretty much everything the Chamber will need her to do and much, much more!
A native of Florida, Britni came to Colorado in 2013 and went to work at the Denver Zoo as operations manager for the guest engagement and learning experiences department. There she improved business performance and profitability—two skills the Chamber membership will certainly appreciate! And she still likes to keep busy. She is currently chair of the IDEA—Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility—committee as well as chair of the audience diversity and inclusivity subcommittee, and multilingual and Spanish access subcommittee, and sits on the diversifying staff and volunteers subcommittee.
Britni has big goals for the Chamber and wants to bring about real change in our community. Her plans include advocating for policies that will benefit our local businesses, communities and quality of life. She recognizes the Chamber members as community leaders and encourages mutual support for the benefit of the whole. She sees her role as bringing members together with community leaders to build relationships, take hold of opportunities, identify challenges and promote positive outcomes—all with her sights set on providing a brighter future for Conifer.
In the small amount of spare time she has, Britni loves baking and spending time with her two pups, Bella and Cooper. She’s a self-professed National Park junkie and has explored nine of them in the last four years, making good progress on her goal to see them all. In addition, she’s an avid wildlife and lifestyle photographer who gains inspiration from people and nature in her world. This creative and passionate person loves to give 100 percent to everything she does, and lives to hear people laughing and having fun. She likes to say, “Life is too serious not to have a little fun!”
Please welcome Britni to the Chamber. Attend one of the upcoming Chamber events and get to know the new executive director!
