Hall Of Fame Inductee — 2007
A living legend in Denver’s tourism business, Pat Lee has amassed a record for promoting Denver and Colorado as leisure destinations unequaled by anyone else. From 1972 until 1989, she worked for Aspen Airways (later to be known as United Express), eventually rising to vice president of marketing. During this period, she helped the airline grow to become the third largest air carrier in Denver at that time. From 1989 to 1996, Pat served as director of destination marketing & regional sales manager for Continental Airlines. Today her company represents tourism sales for one of the city’s top tourist attractions, Cherry Creek Shopping Center, as well as numerous other tourism projects, including the Denver Performing Arts Complex and Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
