South Metro Denver Chamber names new CEO

Jeff Keener replaces Robert Golden, who resigned in late 2019


The South Metro Denver Chamber has named a new chief executive officer. Jeff Keener, a chamber board member and owner of a marketing firm, replaces Robert Golden, who resigned in late 2019.

“As we approach the chamber's 100-year anniversary, we're excited to gain someone as passionate about the business community as Jeff Keener," Christie Lee, the chamber's board chair, said in a news release. "It's an exciting time for the SMDC and we look forward to Keener's leadership, especially as he helps evolve our best practices to reflect the growing business dynamics in the south metro Denver region."

The chamber is poised to grow in 2020 and the years ahead thanks to a strong board and strong economy, especially in the south metro Denver area, Keener said in the release.

“People join the chamber to be fully part of the community,” Keener said. “I'm committed to making sure that we meet our members' needs so that their desire to be involved in their community is satisfied. I appreciate our chamber's important role: we are a critical nucleus for our various communities in the thriving south metro area.”

Keener owns JMB Marketing, a consultancy that provides businesses support in the sales and marketing arenas. Keener was the winner of the chamber's Leadership in Motion Award in 2012. He is a former councilman for the Town of Breckenridge and a former member of the board of directors for Colorado Ski Country USA.

Keener has always been an active member of his community, including stints volunteering with the Littleton hockey and soccer associations, and with the Arapahoe High School lacrosse team.
