The ProDealer Industry Summit will embrace the “Moneyball” movement when the LBM industry event comes to Colorado Springs in October. Construction industry leader Linda Alvarado, an owner of the Colorado Rockies, will deliver the keynote address.

Alvarado is president and CEO of Alvarado Construction, Inc., a commercial general contractor, construction manager, development, design/build, and property management firm. Based in Denver, the company has offices in several states and has successfully developed and constructed projects across America and internationally.

The ProDealer Industry Summit is coming to the historic Broadmoor Resort, Oct. 8-10.

Alvarado has 30 years of experience in commercial development, government and institutional general contracting, construction management, design/build, and program management contracts. Alvarado made history as the first Hispanic owner of a Major League Baseball franchise. As an owner of the Colorado Rockies, her role is also significant as it marked the first time that any woman was involved in a bid for ownership of a Major League Baseball team.

She has been the focus of many articles in newspapers, books, business publications, educational curriculum, and civics texts; has graced the cover of several national magazines; and has been featured in numerous media broadcast productions. Alvarado has set high standards as a successful business owner and her accomplishments have opened doors for women and minorities to enter new careers.

The ProDealer Industry Summit is hosted by the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association in partnership with HBSDealer.
