Who Will Be Crowned ‘CEO Of The Year’ in 2022? — Meet Your Finalists

ColoradoBiz has announced the 10 finalists for our 2022 CEO of the Year, awarded annually to the head of a Colorado company who best exemplifies the qualities of leadership, vision, company success and community involvement. Nominees from around the state were judged by a panel made up of the magazine’s editorial board.

The CEO of the Year winner will be revealed and profiled along with the other finalists in the upcoming Winter 2022 issue of ColoradoBiz, slated for delivery to subscribers Dec. 1.

In previous years, we’ve had the honor of featuring incredible business professionals, owners and CEOs during our annual ColoradoBiz Winter Print edition, and 2022 is no exception. Sure, being crowned CEO Of The Year is a special accolade that should evoke a sense of pride in every CEO that’s considered for this outstanding award. However, the ColoradoBiz staff feels just as honored to spotlight the incredible Colorado business community and the remarkable leaders that represent the entrepreneurial spirit of our Centennial state.

Todd Bowling

President and CEO | Solutions II | Littleton

Solutions II has been around since 1992, and Bowling, 58, has been the company’s CEO for the vast majority of its history – 25 years. The Littleton-based IT services firm boasts six regional offices and clients across all 50 U.S. states.

Under Bowling’s direction, Solutions II has become a nationally recognized IT solutions provider specializing in managed services, IT security, business continuance, virtualization and data lifecycle management.

In January 2019, Bowling led the company’s fourth acquisition, California-based CMI, positioning Solutions II for stronger growth opportunities. As was the case for nearly all business leaders in 2020 and beyond, the COVID-19 pandemic posed a significant challenge for Bowling and Solutions II.

Among his moves, Bowling immediately implemented a work-from-home strategy, and despite the disruption, the firm grew its managed services and security business revenue for the third straight year.
