EVP & COO, Crocs
As we welcome one of our newest members, we celebrate the quintessentially Colorado brand Crocs' decision to "green" their iconic shoes. With their sensible styling and versatile design, Crocs have always fit the Colorado lifestyle. By manufacturing their shoes with renewable, bio-based materials Crocs further embraces the sustainable values that are vital to ensuring that generations of Coloradans can enjoy our unique environment. Thanks to Elaine for her leadership in Crocs' pledge to net zero carbon by 2030!
