Ron Brasch and Una Ng-Brasch were recently recognized as the Business Arts Leaders of the year at the sixth annual Business and Arts Lunch. The lunch, co-presented by the Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance and COPPeR, the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, honors businesses and business leaders that support the arts and integrate arts and creativity into their companies.
Ron Brasch is a Merger and Acquisitions Specialist at The FBB Group, Ltd., and Una Ng-Brasch works in the Education Department at Colorado College.
Brasch is an award-winning poet who participates in the Smokebrush Foundation’s Story Project and the Pikes Peak Library District’s Poet Laureate program. He serves on the boards of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and UCCS’s Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA). Una and Ron are avid collectors of contemporary artwork and fervent supporters of the visual arts.
The Business Leader in the Arts Award honors a person who shows leadership in the arts community in ways that go beyond financial giving and may include board experience, arts advocacy, or individual creativity. This individual supports mutual economic and community interests, helps build the capacity of the arts sector, and increases awareness of the benefits of the arts.
Congratulations Ron and Una, and thank you for supporting the arts community.
