Meet the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce Staff



Kristen Blessman, President & CEO

Kristen is a change-­agent leader who drives the mission and values of the CWCC -­fostering and inclusive environment of empowering, supporting and encouraging the advancement of women in business. Kristen has infectious energy and passion toward changing the staggering statistics of women in business, to have more women in CEO positions, executive leadership roles and more women-­‐owned businesses. You can find her engaging in the Denver community or out running or cycling in the Colorado sun.









Leah Caputo, Program Manager

This Iowan is our go-getter manager of all things relating to programs. She is your north star for learning about our programs, speaking opportunities, topics and the mastermind of putting it all together behind the scenes to ensure your CWCC experience is sublime. When she isn’t working on creating opportunities to advance women in business, you can find her at the pool with a good book, attending any sporting events, or hitting the hiking trails or pavement for a run (think marathon, 10k, she does it and we are tired just thinking about it).
