Lindy Eichenbaum Lent
President and CEO
Lindy Eichenbaum Lent joined the Rose Community Foundation as President and CEO in November 2017.
Lent previously spent nearly nine years as executive director of the Civic Center Conservancy, developing and leading the organization’s nationally-recognized public-private-nonprofit partnerships to revitalize downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park – elevating and sustaining the National Historic Landmark as a vibrant and iconic cultural and community hub through programming, capital improvements, advocacy and fundraising. In recognition of her accomplishments, Lent received an Impact Award from the Downtown Denver Partnership in 2017.
Before joining the Civic Center Conservancy, Lent served as then-Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper’s communications director – both for his 2003 mayoral campaign and his first four-year term in office. In 2007, she was named senior advisor to the mayor and subsequently served as the City and County of Denver’s director of communications for the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
Named a 2012 “Forty Under 40” honoree by the Denver Business Journal, one of the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce’s “Top 25 Most Powerful Women” of 2016, and a 2017 Denver Business Journal “Thought Leader,” Lent serves on the Lowry Redevelopment Authority board of directors, the Colorado Media Project executive committee, and is a member of the Colorado Women’s Forum. She previously served on the Denver Preschool Program Advisory Board and the boards of the University of Colorado Cancer Center Fund, the Golden Triangle Creative District and American Jewish Committee’s Colorado Chapter.
Lent received her bachelor’s degree in political science with honors from Stanford University and her master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University. She and her husband Jason are proud parents of a preschooler and a teenager.
