SCFD Board Appoints Deborah Jordy as Next SCFD Executive Director


After an extensive eight-month search, the Board of Directors of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) has announced the appointment of Deborah Jordy as the District's new executive director. Ms. Jordy follows Peg Long, who will retire at the end of the year after more than nine years as executive director. Deborah is currently the executive director of the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts (CBCA), a post she has held since 2004.

"Deborah's considerable experience with arts and cultural organizations coupled with her significant managerial skills make her the ideal choice to lead SCFD. Voters overwhelmingly renewed SCFD for another 12 years and Jordy's leadership will assure their trust in the District is well placed," said SCFD Board chairman Dan Hopkins. "As we look to further expand access and inclusiveness, Deborah has the relationships and knowledge to make these goals the new reality."

Her experience with cultural organizations, small to large, includes being executive director of the Cherokee Ranch and Castle Foundation (2000-2004), executive director of the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities (1996-2000), and an associate curator at the Denver Art Museum (1986-1994).

"I'm honored to be selected as the next executive director of the SCFD following such a distinguished line of directors.  It will be my privilege to serve the District working to advance a flourishing cultural community that entertains and enlightens the public," Jordy said.

Ms. Jordy has achieved national recognition as a member of the board of directors of Americans for the Arts and is engaged with many local organizations including the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation where she is a trustee. She will join the District in January 2017.
