Last Friday, I was honored to be sworn in by the Honorable Consul General Andrea Sasse from the German Consulate General Los Angeles to be the new German Honorary Consul for Colorado and Wyoming. This appointment was formally held by my mentor and great friend Paul T. Maricle. I admire the dedication and forethought that Paul put into his role as the Honorary Consul, and I intend to continue elevating his impressive efforts.
As a German Honorary Consul, I will prioritize creating opportunities between Germany and Colorado for entrepreneurship, apprenticeship programs, and German language and exchange programs for high-school students. In fostering the next generation to become young global leaders, the sky is the limit for the future between these two countries.
Denver Real Estate Professionals, being part of the Colorado community, is close to my heart. This new appointment strengthens such a vision of community engagement. It also reinforces my number one business priority: guiding people through the transitional moments in their lives. All change is daunting. Whether it is buying a new home or relocating to a different country, it is a privilege to help people navigate through different life chapters.
I am excited about what the future has in store, and I plan on tackling each challenge and exploring every new opportunity as German Honorary Consul. We aim high in the mile high!
Thank you to everyone who attended the ceremony. You made an already special event very momentous. And a special thank you to Paul Maricle, Andrea Sasse, Martina Senin, Bear Creek High School Jazz Ensemble for an excellent performance, the John Kite Quartet from the Brown Palace Hotel, and the student presentations from Standley Lake High School German Program. And last but not least, a special thank you to the German American Chamber of Commerce - Colorado Chapter for sponsoring this event.
