Those of us at Denver Preschool Program who work with Ellen Braun know what a rock star she is. And we were very excited to learn that the Denver Business Journal agrees with us. This month, Ellen was named a recipient of the DBJ’s C-Suite Awards for her work as Chief Operating Officer (COO) at DPP.
As COO, Ellen steers our organization, ensuring that we have the operational and financial ability to accomplish the goals set by our CEO Elsa Holguin and our board of directors.
In nominating Ellen for the award, Elsa wrote: “Ellen Braun embodies the qualities of leadership and accomplishment, and she represents everything we should value in a leader. We ask Ellen to handle the most challenging issues facing DPP because we know she has the focus, drive and intellectual capacity to achieve results. She has been the catalyst behind a number of our most impactful innovations and advancements over the past decade.”
Please join us in congratulating Ellen. It is comforting to know that one of Denver’s best COOs is focused on ensuring that our city’s preschoolers are receiving the opportunity to attend a high-quality early childhood program and enter kindergarten ready to reach their full potential.
