Rebecca Lavezzary, CHAIR

As Director of Marketing at Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture (BRS), Rebecca is primarily responsible for collaborating with the firm’s partners on strategic planning. She has 15 years of experience marketing in the A/E/C industry at both architecture and engineering firms. Rebecca spent her formative years in Colorado and New Mexico before relocating to the Big Apple after graduating from Colorado State University. She spent seven fast-paced years on the East Coast before returning to her more laid-back Colorado roots in search of a better work-life balance (which she definitely found at BRS!) and a nice place to raise her family. Rebecca and husband George are now proud parents to son GP, daughter Nora, puggle Clementine, and a lab/shepherd mix named Hardy. She is an avid Broncos fan on the weekends and an aspiring chef of Puerto Rican cuisine. Rebecca is also actively involved in the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) and currently serves as President-Elect for the Colorado chapter.

Set in an 25,000 sf 1880s former iron foundry, it includes some of the most accomplished artisan culinary groups in the region and is among the highest producing retail in the city. Construction is already underway on The Source Hotel and expanded market hall, which will further expand the scale and reach of The Source.
