Whether is it a ride on a huge Ferris wheel on a sunny day or a cruise through the blue waters around the islands in the Bahamas; all rides have to come to a close.

It has been a good ride for me as CEO of the Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado. This adventure had fun times, challenging issues, new vistas and the opportunity to meet wonderful people. I have been blessed to have been afforded the opportunity to take this ride.

For those of you who accessed the trusted and true resources of the BBB of Southern Colorado, you can count on it not being the same. It will be better. The staff is sage and loyal. The new CEO Matt Barrett is committed to the BBB mission. He’s progressive, smart and caring. He will keep the BBB strong.

The international BBB system is packed with outstanding and passionate CEOs. They are doing amazing things to bring value to businesses and consumers. Expect great things on the international and local levels. You won’t be disappointed.

My thanks to the stellar boards who were always there for me, to an unbeatable staff, to admirable accredited businesses who keep the standards, and a caring community.

Remember, when you, the consumer or business, need marketplace information, turn to the BBB at You can trust what you read.

God bless,
