DENVER: After nearly five years at the helm of ProgressNow Colorado, the state’s largest multi-issue progressive advocacy organization, ProgressNow Colorado’s Executive Director Ian Silverii announced his plan to step down in the coming months, pending the board hiring his successor.

“Since our founding all the way back in 2003, ProgressNow Colorado has played a central role in the evolution of this state not just from red to blue, but into an example of a cohesive and functional progressive movement that achieves tangible, long term results,” said ProgressNow Colorado executive director Ian Silverii. “Over the last four and a half years, I’m proud to have assembled a team of some of the best digital organizing, video production, and political communications professionals to be found anywhere in the commercial or nonprofit sectors. The leadership and support this team has provided to progressive activists, partner organizations, and issue campaigns at every level of Colorado politics has changed the course of history.”

“Under Ian’s leadership, we’ve been able to completely redefine our organization’s role in progressive advocacy in Colorado, and the results speak for themselves,” said ProgressNow Colorado Board Chairwoman Leticia Martinez. “Whether our brand is on the work product or we’re providing logistical and creative support for partner grassroots activists behind the scenes, we’ve never been more successful at our core mission of promoting progressive solutions to community problems and holding conservatives accountable than these past few years. We’re grateful to Ian for all he’s done to make this organization into the powerhouse it is today and are excited to find someone who can fill his massive shoes.”

The PNC Board of Directors will undertake a nationwide search process for the next executive director to replace Silverii. The specific time of Silverii’s departure and details of the selection process will be disclosed at a future date.
