Debi Baydush is the founding principal of BSW Wealth Partners, a certified B Corp with offices in Boulder and Denver, CO. She served as the Chief Investment Officer for more 17 years and during this time was named one of 2010’s Remarkable Women by the Boulder County Business Report. For 2016, the firm was listed by the Financial Times as one of the 300 top Financial Advisers and by Outside Magazine as one of the 100 Best Places to Work. January 1, 2013 marked Debi’s transition to an “Of Counsel” role within BSW, remaining a shareholder and continuing to work on strategic initiatives. The next step in her plan was then to move from satisfying the head to nurturing the spirit: seeing and experiencing more of the world we live in and enjoying the fulfillment of the lifelong dream to have a lodge in the wilderness. That travel led to Debi’s current venture: working with young entrepreneurs to negotiate the rights to an Italian business for operation and expansion throughout the United States.
