Webb Group International - Project Consulting

Wellington E. Webb, Denver's former mayor, founded Webb Group International in October 2003 to offer his experience and expertise to cities and businesses.

While in office from 1991 to July 2003, he oversaw an investment of $7 billion in infrastructure. Those projects included the $4 billion Denver International Airport and redevelopment of former Stapleton Airport into a thriving residential/business community.

He convinced voters to approve a $300 million expansion to the Colorado Convention Center, which opened in December 2004, and led tough, successful negotiations for a nearby hotel. The mayor strongly supported the revitalization of the Mile High City's downtown, which has become a model nationwide.

The preservation of historic buildings were remodeled into lofts, offices, restaurants and bars along with the anchors of the Denver for the Performing Arts and Coors Field. In addition, the nearby Central Platte Valley -- once an abandoned rail yard -- was renewed with acres of park land along the South Platte River and the construction of the Pepsi Center and Six Flags Elitch Gardens.

The mayor also looked internationally to stimulate Denver's economy by opening foreign trade offices in London, England and Shanghai, China.

"As a former mayor, I recognize and have personally encountered the wide array of issues you are faced with daily. I possess a unique mayoral perspective in assisting you with the challenges ahead, as well as knowing how to seize the opportunity presented within those challenges." - Wellington E. Webb
