Heather Tritten will be the next leader of the Colorado Children’s Campaign

DENVER – The Board of Directors of the Colorado Children’s Campaign has announced that Heather Tritten will be the organization’s next President and CEO, following a comprehensive national search. Beginning Nov. 1, Heather will lead the Colorado Children’s Campaign in its work to realize every chance for every child in Colorado.

“We are so excited to welcome Heather to the Colorado Children’s Campaign,” said Sharlene Keithley, Board Chair of the Colorado Children’s Campaign. “Heather brings a unique mix of deep policy and advocacy experience, a strong track record in nonprofit leadership and state government, and a clear commitment to children and families to this special organization.”

Heather comes to the Colorado Children’s Campaign from Parent Possible, where she has served as Executive Director since 2015. Prior to that role, Heather was the Vice President of Quality Programs at Qualistar Colorado, and Head Start Collaboration Director in the Office of Lt. Governor Joe Garcia. She also authored Governor Hickenlooper’s early literacy plan, Colorado Reads: the Early Literacy Initiative.

“I am thrilled and honored to step into this role and to build on the great foundation that has been put in place over the past 38 years,” Tritten said. “And I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. I look forward to working with the Campaign’s talented team of policy, research, and advocacy experts, and I know that together, we will create change and implement strategies to ensure a more equitable and brighter future for all of Colorado’s children.”

“I am delighted that the Colorado Children’s Campaign has identified Heather Tritten as its next President and CEO,” said former Lt. Governor Joe Garcia. “When we worked together on early childhood issues in my former office, I saw that Heather was a principled leader in making Colorado a great place for kids and families. I am confident she and the Children’s Campaign team will do great things to advance the well-being of children in our state.”

Since 1985, the Colorado Children’s Campaign has advocated for the development and implementation of data-driven public policy that improves child and family well-being. The Colorado Children’s Campaign’s work focuses on child and family health; early childhood; youth success; and family economic prosperity.

“I know that, with Heather’s leadership, the Colorado Children’s Campaign will continue to be a powerful and effective voice for children and families and will do excellent work to advance equity in each of our issue areas,” said Rosemary Rodriguez, Vice-Chair of the Colorado Children’s Campaign Board of Directors.
