Terry Sullivan

Hall Of Fame Inductee — 2010

Retired President & CEO, Experience Colorado Springs

Terry Sullivan has been a leading force in Colorado tourism for twenty years, one of the longest spans of anyone in the state's history. He became the leader of Experience Colorado Springs, the Convention & Visitors Bureau, in 1990, first as executive director and later as president & CEO. The local member-based organization is charged with promoting Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region as a national and international tourism destination. Over his 20 year span, Terry helped tourism in Colorado Springs grow to a $1.2 billion industry that supports 14,000 jobs. Under his leadership, Experience Colorado Springs won many national awards, including ten years of winning the "Gold Service Award" from Meetings & Conventions Magazine.

Terry was also a leader in developing the Colorado Association of Destination Marketing Associations (CADMO) and the Travel Industry Association of Colorado (TIAC). It was with his assistance that the Colorado tourism industry learned to "speak with one voice," eventually leading to the creation of the Colorado Tourism Office and increased tourism marketing dollars for the state.

In 2005, Terry Sullivan was honored with the Governor's Tourism Award for Outstanding Individual Contribution to Colorado Tourism. For being a good partner to Denver and for his two decades of dedication to Colorado's travel industry, Terry Sullivan is being honored as a member of the Denver & Colorado Tourism Hall of Fame.
