Occupation: Retired, 38 years in Technology sales

The mission statement of Steamboat Mountain School resonates with me very strongly. As the parent of a winter sports athlete, and as a former study abroad student myself, I understand and respect both programs within the context of college preparatory education. Serving on the Board of Trustees keeps me connected with the Steamboat Springs community despite my geographic separation as an East Coast supporter.

Kyle Ewing, Steamboat Mountain School Class of '03, became a full time entrepreneur in 2014 after leaving a prestigious position in the corporate world, and after turning down multiple offers from several major operators in the tech and consulting industries.  Kyle is now focused on the growth and development of his startup, TerraSlate Paper, which he is growing under his startup incubator, JT&R Capital.  Kyle also works with fellow entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to develop new systems, metrics and growth strategies for emerging companies in the tech and renewable resources industries.  Recent accolades include “Entrepreneur of the Year” awarded by the Worldwide Who's Who organization.

Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, Kyle worked as a Senior Supply Chain Manager at Brightstar Corporation on supply chain optimization and demand signal forecasting.  At an operator-wide level, he has successfully carried out multiple initiatives in supply chain management, data-driven analytics and inventory management using a triple exponential forecasting model he built.  Kyle has also held roles as a Business Operations Consultant, Procurement Manager and Marketing Analyst where he gained much of the valuable experience upon which he relies.

Kyle received his BSBA in 2008 and his MBA in 2009 with a Chancellor's Scholarship from the Daniel's College of Business at the University of Denver.  During his time at DU he developed a passion for philanthropic work and founded the Seven Ribbons Foundation supporting cancer research.  Kyle is also a member of the Denver Urban Scholars Logistics Committee, the Denver Urban Nights Planning Committee for at risk youth, and the Development Committee of the Steamboat Mountain School. 

In his personal life Kyle is an avid triathlete, runner and mountaineer in addition to his volunteer work.  He recently won the Mt. Kilimanjaro Marathon, completed the Ironman Triathlon in Western Australia, and has successful summits of Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn and the Eiger.
