DENVER — Boulder resident and former chief executive officer of Chipotle Mexican Grill, Monty Moran, has been elected to chairman of the board of Trelora, a flat-fee real estate brokerage in Denver.
Moran will lead the board and provide guidance to help Trelora expand into new markets.
“I have been a huge fan of Chipotle for years. Much of what we have built at Trelora around process and culture was formed from my respect and admiration of the extraordinary culture Monty built at Chipotle,” said Joshua Hunt, Trelora founder and CEO. “I knew the very first time I met Monty that he needed to be involved with Trelora. Monty’s love for and commitment to people, his curiosity, and his commitment to excellence is at the very core of Trelora and he is a leader that everyone here deeply respects, trusts and is ready to learn and grow from. Together with our Board and entire team, Monty and I are committed to building a company that has long lasting impact in the hearts and minds of everyone we come in contact with.”
At Chipotle, Moran led a team of more than 65,000 employees while helping grow the company from eight restaurants to more than 2,100 locations. Prior to Chipotle, Moran served as partner and CEO of the law firm of Messner and Reeves from 1996 to 2005. He holds a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Colorado, and a juris doctor degree, magna cum laude, from Pepperdine University School of Law.
Moran also serves on the board of directors of Blinker Inc., and is involved as an investor and advisor to many other companies and organizations.
“I am humbled and proud to accept the role of chairman of the board of Trelora,” Moran said. “Joshua’s incredible vision of caring for people by streamlining, demystifying and simplifying the process of buying and selling homes inspires me, and has attracted a world class management team, top notch employees, and a strong board of directors.”
