J. J. Ament is the President & CEO of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, one of Colorado’s most robust organizations in business advocacy, policy, public engagement, and in putting more Coloradans to work. In their own words, “Nothing helps our families, neighbors, community and economy more than the opportunity for more of us to go to work in great jobs.”

On this episode of Vic Lombardi’s Denver, Vic sits down with J. J. and discusses his upbringing on a ranch in Northeast Colorado and how he ultimately came to lead this organization. They also cover topics ranging from the importance of water to the economic impact professional sports success has on this city to how small businesses are the lifeblood of any economy. It’s a wide-ranging and friendly chat about a litany of issues with one of Denver’s pre-eminent leaders that any Denverite will find interesting.
