Denver Business Journal: Hickenlooper's chief counsel to lead CU Foundation

"This is an exciting opportunity for me to play a key role strengthening the University of Colorado, a flagship public university that contributes so much to Colorado citizens and communities," Finlaw said. "I hope to enhance collaborations between the CU Foundation and the university, and maximize donors' ability to pursue their passions at CU."

Finlaw assumes his new post Nov. 17.

The foundation is an independent nonprofit that manages endowments of $1.1 billion and receives more than $150 million a year in donations to CU programs. Most of CU's professional fundraisers, who formerly worked for the foundation, now report directly to CU following a consulting firm's recommendation on ways to bolster CU fundraising.
