DENVER – The Colorado Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors today elected Stacey Campbell as 2019-20 Board Chair. Campbell has been a public voice for the business community in front of the General Assembly and state government on critical employment issues. He is the owner of Campbell Litigation, P.C., an employment defense litigation law firm. The firm also handles commercial litigation.
“I look forward to continuing working through the Chamber’s advocacy on behalf of business as Colorado enters a new legislative session,” said Campbell. “If the Colorado legislature brings forth a new paid family and medical leave bill, it will be important to ensure that the bill is balanced for both employees and Colorado’s business community.”
“Stacey’s leadership, particularly on issues like family and medical leave, has been key to the Colorado Chamber’s work, especially in the last legislative session,” said Chuck Berry, president of the Colorado Chamber. “With more legislation facing the business community on the horizon next session, I’m confident that Stacey will continue to be a driving force for business as he leads the Colorado Chamber into 2020.”
Campbell testified on behalf of the Colorado Chamber on several employment related bills during the 2019 legislative session, including a bill that would have created a state-run family and medical leave insurance program in Colorado. In July 2019, he was subsequently appointed to Colorado’s Family and Medical Leave Insurance Task Force, where he currently serves as vice chair.
Campbell has successfully first-chaired jury trials throughout the U.S. involving employment discrimination, employment benefits, breach of contract, non-compete and trade secrets, and personal injury. He has also litigated Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) cases and regularly advises clients on FLSA issues, conducts audits on employer pay practices, and evaluates and assists companies with proper employee classification.
For a number of years, Campbell and his wife, Michelle Campbell, the firm’s Chief Operating Officer and founder of non-profit Colorado REACH, combined to form the Colorado Diversity and Inclusion Think Tank, which infuses diversity and inclusion initiatives in Colorado corporations from a legal and practical standpoint.
Campbell succeeds 2018-19 Board Chair Rhonda Sparlin of RubinBrown LLP. The Colorado Chamber Board today also named Rachel Nance of Xcel Energy as Board Chair-elect for 2020-21.
