R+B Principal Sarah Broughton Named a Finalist in Denver Business Journal’s 2020 Outstanding Women in Business Awards

ASPEN, CO — July 27, 2020 — Rowland+Broughton Architecture / Urban Design / Interior Design is pleased to announce that Principal Sarah Broughton, AIA, NCIDQ, has been named a finalist in the architecture, engineering and construction category of Denver Business Journal’s 2020 Outstanding Women in Business Awards.


According to Denver Business Journal (DBJ), the awards honor women for their accomplishments in 12 industry categories: architecture, engineering and construction; banking, finance and accounting; communications, media and public relations; education, government and nonprofits; energy; health care; large business owners (more than 20 employees); law; Mile High Leaders (industries that don’t fit neatly into existing categories); real estate; small business owners (20 or so fewer employees); technology and telecommunications; and lifetime achievement.


Finalists are recognized for their accomplishments within their individual business, industries, and wider business community, as well as their community impact and philanthropic efforts.


As the Denver region – along with the nation – works to regain its footing in the middle of a global pandemic, the women honored in the 2020 Outstanding Women in Business Awards are leading their companies and communities throughout tremendous change. They’ll be honored at a virtual event on August 13, featuring an armchair dialogue with Colorado Technology Association’s President+CEO Frannie Matthews and DBJ Editor-In-Chief Rebecca Troyer.

About being selected as a finalist in the DBJ 2020 Outstanding Women in Business Awards, Broughton shares, “It’s an honor to be a finalist in the architecture, engineering and construction category along with two distinguished women, Allyson Mendenhall from Design Workshop and Melissa Rosas from Apex Design. With studios in Denver and Aspen, R+B’s common ‘cultural thread’ is a collaborative process that tests conventional thinking. That is particularly relevant these days as we are confronted with unprecedented challenges, both within our firm and in regard to our clients, partners and community. Thank you to Denver Business Journal and congratulations to this outstanding group of women, who are individually and collectively pushing us forward. Winners all!”
