Two top Denver executives have joined the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado Board. They include Rhonda Sparlin, Partner-in-Charge State and Local Tax for Rubin Brown, and Shawn Neville, Chief Executive Officer of Boa Technology.
Sparlin is a former Big Sister and became interested in the organization when she moved to Denver several decades ago. She became reintroduced during a private donor event and realized her desire to reengage from both an individual and corporate standpoint. “I am so honored to be a part of the Big Brother Big Sisters of Colorado Board of Directors,” said Sparlin. “The organization has faithfully served and positively impacted so many children in our community. I look forward to being actively involved in advancing the organization’s research-proven mission.”
Neville is a former Big Brother and has been fortunate to be engaged with Big Brothers Big Sisters in various roles for over 30 years, including serving on the National Board of Directors from 2001-2004. He met his Little Brother in Phoenix in 1986. Neville reconnected with BBBS in the fall of 2017 when Boa Technology became an ACE Sponsor of the agency’s new Topgolf for Kids’ Sake event. Over 75 Boa employees participated in the event. “The organization’s mission and deep commitment to changing lives through one-to-one mentorship is very important to me personally and has inspired me to support and do my best to positively impact the organization whenever and wherever I am able,” said Neville. “I am privileged to be joining the Colorado Board and look forward to having a positive impact directly and through my team at Boa Technology.”
Both new board members were voted on and approved during the December Board of Directors Meeting. “What a statement it is that this organization is able to attract such passionate and impressive talent to its Board of Directors,” said Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado’s CEO, Dave Ryan. “These two join an incredible group of community leaders who understand the difference a caring adult mentor can make in a child’s life.”
