Mayor Michael B. Hancock
Michael B. Hancock became Denver, Colorado’s 45th mayor in July 2011 and immediately began to transform Denver into a more globally competitive city. With the fifth-busiest airport in the United State serving more than 53 million passengers per year, Mayor Hancock is leveraging Denver International Airport to make the entire Denver region a major gateway to the world.
Mayor Hancock was recently named as the first mayor to serve on the FAA’s Management Advisory Council, where he will bring Denver’s ingenuity to the table as he works to advance major issues on behalf of DIA, other airports and the aviation industry. He also now serves on the U.S. Conference of Mayors Transportation Committee.
As Denver and cities across the country emerge from the recession, Mayor Hancock is committed to creating economic opportunity and eliminating inequities and disparities. Top priorities include reducing homelessness, increasing affordable housing options, strengthening workforce training partnerships with community colleges, and finding solutions to chronic mental health and substance abuse challenges in the community.
