Steve Bartolin, CEO and president of The Broadmoor, has been named CEO of the Year by ColoradoBiz magazine.

Featured in this month’s magazine, Bartolin is the eighth winner of the award, which recognizes outstanding professional achievement and community impact while taking into account obstacles surmounted, career-long body of work or other elements of the CEO’s life and work.

CEOs are nominated by Colorado’s business community, ColoradoBiz readers and staff, and are judged by the magazine’s editorial board and representatives from the Colorado Association of Commerce & Industry.

Bartolin has been at the helm of The Broadmoor for 21 years, through three owners and multi-millon dollar renovations. He’s not only overseen the growth of the luxury hotel’s conference and group businesses, he’s responsible for creating the Broadmoor Development Co., which built and developed three luxury communities at or near the hotel.

The Broadmoor was purchased by Colorado billionaire Phil Anschutz in 2011, and Anschutz credits Bartolin as being the “one of the best CEOs I have met or been privileged to work with,” the magazine article reports.
