Derek Burnham

In 2010 I left my home state of Montana to be closer to some extended family in Colorado.  We landed in Fort Collins, but in my search for just the right company, I found DCNC here in Denver. I knew right away they were the perfect fit for what I was looking for, and I have been making the daily commute from Fort Collins ever since!
I have been in the IT industry for over 25 years, landing my first in-house IT job at 19 while still attending Montana State University.  Over the years I have worked for non-profits, Internet Service Providers, owned my own IT Consulting company, worked for a giant corporation with 44,000 employees worldwide, and finally landed at DCNC,  where my passion and expertise for IT were a perfect fit.    Starting as a Systems Engineer, working my way up to Director of Operations, and then on to my current position as Vice President, I have a unique perspective on all things DCNC. I use that knowledge daily to help grow and shape our company to be the very best it can be, for our employees and our clients. 
When I manage to sneak away from work, I spend my free time cycling, fishing, hiking, hunting, and trying to keep up with the last child at home, our daughter Macie.  I lovingly refer to her as my princess tomboy as she is equal parts of each.  Watch for her fishing on the shores of Horsetooth in her fancy dress, standing barefoot in the mud.  I’m also very proud of our oldest son Kyler, who graduated from Adams State University, with a Business degree.  My oldest, beautiful daughter Kendra moved back to Montana, is happily married to her high school sweetheart, and believe it or not, I am the proud Grandpa of two amazing grandsons, Braydon and Jude.
