The Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce and Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain have announced the 2024 inductees into the Colorado Business Hall of Fame. This year’s class includes former Vail Resorts CEO Rob Katz, who has been recognized for his leadership and contributions to the industry.

Under Katz’s leadership, Vail Resorts has grown its footprint from five to 41 resorts and increased the number of employees at its Broomfield headquarters from 200 to 1,200. He created the Katz Amsterdam Foundation with a focus on nonprofits in mountain communities that address mental and behavioral challenges, which has given over $22 million back to the community. In 2021, Katz stepped down as CEO but remains on the board as executive chairman and continues to be fully involved in the strategic operations of the company.

Katz is not alone in this year’s honorees. Other inductees include Rose Andom, Pat Hamill, John A. Ikard, Steve Schuck, and Elizabeth Hickok Robbins Stone. Their contributions to Colorado’s business community will be recognized at an induction ceremony on Feb. 15 at the annual Colorado Business Hall of Fame dinner at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center, hosted by Denver7’s Brian Sanders.
