Greg Stevinson’s leadership and business acumen has been instrumental in helping to develop Lakewood and Jefferson County. As Managing Principal of Denver West Partners, LLC, Greg has devoted the past 40 years leading the development of the 500+ acre Denver West community. He was instrumental in the creation of the Denver West Business Park, its Retail District which includes Colorado Mills/Denver West Village, the Promenade Shops, and the Denver West Automotive District including the Stevinson Family car dealerships.
Due to these efforts, Greg was named by E.W. Scripps Newspaper, Rocky Mountain News as “Colorado Businessperson of the year.”
Greg has been actively involved in community and organizational activities. He was a member of the Jefferson County Open Space Advisory Committee (OSAC) for 23 years and served 17 years as its Chairman. OSAC advises the Jefferson County Commissioners, cities, and recreational districts on the acquisition, development, maintenance and/or preservation of natural and recreational parklands. The Jefferson County Open Space Program is renowned nationally and has preserved nearly 54,000+ acres of land in Jefferson County.
He chaired the grass roots, volunteer citizens committee called Save Open Space (SOS) which advocated the issuance of revenue bonds to finance accelerated acquisition of open space throughout Jefferson County. The ballot initiative passed with more than 70% of voters in agreement.
Art in Jefferson County also benefits from Greg Stevinson’s support. He hosted the kickoff to the In Plein Sight Exhibit and fundraiser that featured Greg and his wife’s private collection of dramatic paintings of Jeffco Open Space Parks. Sticking with the outdoor theme, Greg’s Denver West development boasts one of the most unique and robust outdoor art collections in the Metro area.
In addition, the Greg and Sue Stevinson family have donated or loaned dozens of the beautiful bronze sculptures to the Cities of Lakewood, Golden, Wheat Ridge and Jefferson County for public enjoyment.
A former Chairman of the Board of Craig Hospital, a nationally recognized hospital specializing in the rehabilitation of patients with severe head and/or spinal injuries, he also served as a member of the Craig Hospital Foundation. He has been on the Boards of Director of the West Chamber of Commerce, Colorado Baseball Stadium District, the Red Rocks Community College Foundation and the Citizens Advisory Board for St. Anthony Hospital.
He has served as a director and treasurer of the Jefferson Economic Council and was a founder and former director of Denver West Bank and Trust (now KeyBank at Denver West).
