New Denver Area Manager: Meet Samy Alkaihal

Hello. I grew up in the state of the Mile High City, surrounded by the lush and extravagant rocky mountains. I lived, worked and studied abroad in Morocco where I picked up many languages and skill sets. I have worked in many fields in the past, from Marketing to Education, where my love and drive to work with others and give back to the community grew.

I have a strong vision for the Denver Market Area and plan to not just expand it, but collaboratively and purposefully develop strong ties with the communities and the individuals that make it up. One business and specialist at a time!
