« PreviousNext » Attorney Ken Fellman of Denver-based Kissinger & Fellman P.C. has accepted a position on the board of directors for the Lutheran Medical Center Foundation in Wheat Ridge, Colo.
Fellman’s appointment extends his long career of community involvement, which includes eight years as mayor of Arvada, Colo., five years on the U.S. Conference of Mayors Transportation and Communications Committee, and five years on the Arvada Planning Commission. He was an Arvada City Council member, and he served on the Arvada Council for the Arts and Humanities. He is currently a member of Gov. Bill Ritter’s Innovation Council and president-elect of the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors.
“I am honored to be selected to the Lutheran Medical Center Foundation board of directors, and I look forward to a long and fruitful association,” Fellman said. “I have always made public health one of my main points of emphasis during my public service, and I believe I can have an impact in this position.”
Last year, Fellman received a 2007 Public Health Champion of the Year award, granted by the Jefferson County Department of Health and Environment. He is also a member of the Metro Denver Health and Wellness Commission.
The Lutheran Medical Center Foundation’s mission is to build philanthropic support for Exempla Lutheran Medical Center and all its affiliated, not-for-profit organizations, which include its acute-care hospital, hospice care, behavioral health entity and long-term care facility.
“The board enthusiastically welcomes Ken and anticipates that his background and expertise will serve the Foundation well,” said Carol Salzmann, vice president and executive director of the Foundation.
Fellman’s primary area of legal expertise is in local government and telecommunications law, and he serves as general counsel for the Greater Metro Telecommunications Consortium, an intergovernmental agency comprised of 34 local governments in metro Denver. He is city attorney for Cherry Hills Village, Colo., and he represents local governments throughout the nation on a wide variety of cable and telecommunications issues. In 2007, he was named as one of Law & Politics’ Colorado Super Lawyers, a list that represents the top 5 percent of Colorado attorneys.
