New Executives in Residence at the Daniels College of Business

The University of Denver Daniels College of Business strives to develop strong entrepreneurs and business leaders. The professors at the school understand the importance of providing role models for their students to learn from. For that reason, the school has an Executives in Residence program, which brings distinguished business professionals to the campus. Throughout the year, these individuals work closely with students to share their real-world experiences and talk about the importance of ethics in entrepreneurship. The school strives to find executives from a variety of different fields and backgrounds in order to expose students to a wide range of successful professionals. In September 2013, the school announced the arrival of three new Executives in Residence: Joe Colosimo, Collon Kenney III, and Robert Troccoli.

Joe Colosimo founded Colosimo & Associates, which works closely with Fortune 300 corporations, nonprofits, and other small businesses to improve operations. At present, he serves as the president of the firm. Previously, he worked at major corporations like Westinghouse, Ford, and UtiliCorp United. The Journal of Business Strategy and Financial Executive Magazine have both featured him and his work in their publications.

Collon Kennedy III is an experienced senior executive and attorney who has worked with mining and energy companies in North America and Chile. He has created a number of presentations as part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Coalbed Methane Outreach Program and has been published in Coal Mine Methane: The True Unconventional Gas. Most recently, he served as outside legal counsel to a major Colorado environmental engineering firm.

Robert Troccoli served as a senior partner of the Sovereign Wealth Funds Practice at KPMG and as a founding member of the firm’s Private Equity Group. He is experienced in leading private equity professionals around the nation. Earlier in his career, he served as a lead audit partner at multiple public companies, including Oppenheimer Funds.
