Our Founder

   

King H. Harris 

 

   

 A long-time Denver businessman, King Harris began his career in business and finance as a commercial banker for one of the largest banks in the Denver area. He later established his own companies specializing in retail, construction, and construction management, with emphasis on large public sector projects. His companies have employed hundreds of individuals.


In the 1990s Mr. Harris “retired” from an active role in his businesses in order to pursue degrees in divinity and theology. As Pastor of Epworth United Methodist Church he founded The Epworth Foundation in 2005 to further the church’s humanitarian goals. Rev. Harris has long been involved in issues affecting low-income housing. He helped to revitalize Curtis Park and City Park West neighborhoods through renovation of dilapidated housing.


Mr. Harris has served on the boards of the Volunteers of America, and as a commissioner of the Colorado State Highway Department. He currently serves as president of the Park Creek and Westerly Creek districts that are responsible for the redevelopment of the former Stapleton Airport in Denver.
