Cecilia Ortega Lagos
Hello, my name is Cecilia Ortega Lagos, and I am honored to put my name down as a candidate for the Cherry Creek East Board Association. I moved to Cherry Creek East in the fall of 2018 and immediately joined the association. Through my participation in Cellar Dwellers, Singles Club, and Women’s Wine Club, I have met many wonderful neighbors. I have also been a “Neighborhood Watch Lead’ for the past two years.
I have more than 25 years of experience successfully leading strategic and technical business initiatives with proven expertise in project management, program portfolio management, vendor management, profit and loss, and infrastructure management, covering full life-cycle application development and integration rollouts. I also have extensive experience navigating complex and diverse business environments defining, managing, and executing business transformation and change programs.
I see Cherry Creek East as a hidden gem, and I am passionate about ensuring we keep it as such. There are many initiatives in our community, from safety, new zoning developments, solar projects, and group living amendments. I believe we need to stay on top of these initiatives to ensure the best-kept secret that CCE is, remains that way. Through my professional experience, I have gained the skills and qualities essential to assist the CCE Board on successful governance and operations, ensuring I can represent the CCE association to the best of my abilities.
On a personal note, I was born in Santiago, Chile, and moved to Denver, Colorado, in the early ‘80s. I have two beautiful puppies who you will see roaming the neighborhood, and many would say Oliver is a watchdog, all 8lbs of him! Lily is 13 years old and loves her walks. I am currently obtaining a business Ph.D. at the University of Denver. When not walking Lily and Oliver, studying, or working, you will find me playing tennis, instructing a workout class called Palango, and most recently enjoying my new Peloton! I hope you consider me for the position.
