Thankful for Klaus

Klaus Obermeyer has to be one of Aspen’s most successful entrepreneurs ever – and yet a man so friendly and humble that he is instantly loved by all who meet him.

I dare say that no one has seen Klaus without a friendly smile and enthusiastic greeting. I have not in over 35 years. I wore one of his first warm, puffy parkas – it was great!

Now Klaus offers us a fine new project at Bleeker Street and Rio Grande Place to provide us with a complex in answer to housing and governmental (even local retail and parking now in such short supply) needs.

If there is any arrogance or pomposity in this good man, it has never been evident. We, the citizens of Aspen, salute you Herr Obermeyer.
