Gene Commander named to DURA board

Gene Commander has been named to the Denver Urban Renewal Authority Board of Commissioners to help provide policy direction in all aspects of the organizations activities.

Commander, president of alternative dispute-resolution firm Gene Commander Inc., brings the perspectives of the legal and real estate landscapes in Denver after previously spending more than 35 years as an attorney representing clients involved in nearly every sector of the construction industry. He formerly served as managing shareholder for the Denver office of Polsinelli PC, as well as the vice chair of the firm’s national construction practice.

"Gene brings an appreciated perspective to the DURA Board of Commissioners, with expertise in redevelopment and construction," says Tracy Huggins, executive director of DURA, Denver’s facilitator of redevelopment and neighborhood investment. "As DURA continues to manage thoughtful solutions for redevelopment in the areas that need it most, Gene will provide a respected voice."

Commander also is an active member and past chairman of the Downtown Denver Partnership, a panel member with the American Arbitration Association and a past board member of the Associated General Contractors of Colorado.
