Webb Group International - Project Consulting

Wellington E. Webb, Denver's former mayor, founded Webb Group International in October 2003 to offer his experience and expertise to cities and businesses.

While in office from 1991 to July 2003, he oversaw an investment of $7 billion in infrastructure. Those projects included the $4 billion Denver International Airport and redevelopment of former Stapleton Airport into a thriving residential/business community.

He convinced voters to approve a $300 million expansion to the Colorado Convention Center, which opened in December 2004, and led tough, successful negotiations for a nearby hotel. The mayor strongly supported the revitalization of the Mile High City's downtown, which has become a model nationwide.

The preservation of historic buildings were remodeled into lofts, offices, restaurants and bars along with the anchors of the Denver for the Performing Arts and Coors Field. In addition, the nearby Central Platte Valley -- once an abandoned rail yard -- was renewed with acres of park land along the South Platte River and the construction of the Pepsi Center and Six Flags Elitch Gardens.

The mayor also looked internationally to stimulate Denver's economy by opening foreign trade offices in London, England and Shanghai, China.

"As a former mayor, I recognize and have personally encountered the wide array of issues you are faced with daily. I possess a unique mayoral perspective in assisting you with the challenges ahead, as well as knowing how to seize the opportunity presented within those challenges." - Wellington E. Webb

During his 12-year tenure, he helped transform the city with the opening of Denver International Airport, revitalization of downtown and addition of the most park and open space of any mayor.

Current Events DENVER – Former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb will discuss his autobiography, “The Man, the Mayor and the Making of Modern Denver” at several public events during its release in February.

President William Clinton, who read the autobiography, writes: “Wellington Webb, the first African American Mayor in Denver’s history, worked tirelessly to reduce crime in his city and across the country, and I was proud to appoint him to chair the U.S. Conference of Mayors Task Force on Violent Crime. His autobiography is a candid and compelling account of the remarkable life of a good man, an energetic, intelligent leader who served his beloved city and our nation well.”

This is the first time Webb has shared his life story – from arriving in Denver as a sickly child to overcoming personal tragedy and his underdog victory as the Mile High City’s leader. Published by Fulcrum Publishing in Golden, Colorado, the book includes more than 60 interviews with Webb’s family, friends and politicians compiled by co-author, former Denver Post reporter Cindy Brovsky.
