In May of 2009, our first meeting was held at the Panera Bread in Lone Tree, a suburb of Denver. This initial group, called “The Art of Networking”, was formed by Art Weeast for professionals in transition. From the onset smaller, more intimate groups were a core value. These original groups centered around the sales, marketing, IT, HR and engineering domains. Among these, IT is the only surviving subgroup. This is what we now know today as DITEX (Denver IT Executives).
Since its beginning in 2009, DITEX has grown to a cohort of more than 500 people, including current active members, alumni and friends of DITEX. It’s one of the largest networks of its kind in Colorado and unique in its mission of collaboratively helping all active members identify and secure their next professional opportunities. The group is by invite only, and emphasizes a “pay it forward” mentality.
