Former Nuggets CEO named president/CEO of Stock Show
DENVER – Paul Andrews has been named president/CEO of Western Stock Show Association, the governing body of the National Western Stock Show.
Andrews, who will start at NWSS Nov. 1, is currently the executive vice president of Kroenke Sports, owner of the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche. He succeeds Pat Grant, who will stay on through the transition period, according to a news release from the stock show.
The announcement was made Friday by Jerry McMorris, chairman of the board of the stock show.
“It’s been a long, careful and extensive search and we’ve found a dynamic leader who will continue to build upon the stock show legacy, tradition, charitable mission and history,” McMorris said in the news release. The stock show will celebrate its 105th year, Jan. 8-23.
As president and CEO, Andrews will not only be responsible for the day-to-day operations, programming and administration for National Western Stock Show and the year-round shows of the National Western Complex, but also take a leadership role in National Western’s long-term planning.
“It’s very exciting to be part of the long established icon, National Western and even more exciting to be part of its future,” Andrews said.
Andrews began his career with the Nuggets as an account executive in 1990. He is a Colorado native and graduated from Alameda High School before going on to the University of Wyoming where he earned a degree in marketing.
