Lisa Calkins, chief executive officer and co-founder of custom software development firm Amadeus Consulting, was recently included on ColoradoBiz Magazine’s CEO of the Year list in the small company category.
In its eighth year, the CEO of the Year designation recognizes Colorado-based CEOs with outstanding professional achievement and community impact while taking into account obstacles surmounted, career-long body of work and other unique elements of the CEO’s life and work.
Nominations come from Colorado’s business community and ColoradoBiz readers and staff. The entries are evaluated by a judging panel made up of the magazine’s editorial board and, this year, representatives from the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry.
Lisa Calkins co-founded Amadeus Consulting in 1994 when it employed three people. Today Boulder-based Amadeus employs 73 experts in digital marketing, custom software development and mobile application development. Much of the energy that Calkins brought to that growth derived from her longtime dedication to creating intelligent technology solutions with successful business results.
“It is an honor to be placed as a top CEO amongst other admirable Colorado business leaders,” said Lisa Calkins, chief executive officer of Amadeus Consulting. “To be recognized out of only nine selected entrepreneurs is humbling. It is a motivation to continue to lead my team to do the innovative work that we do at Amadeus Consulting.”
Calkins is listed as CEO of the Year among notable companies including Yeti Cycles, 34 Degrees LLC, Accucode Inc., and Two Rivers Winery. For more information about Calkin’s listing, visit http://www.cobizmag.com/articles/ceo-of-the-year-2012-small-company-finalists.
