Alan was Chief Financial Officer of a window covering company named Colorel Blinds in the 1990’s.  He also held positions managing sales and fabrication for Colorel Blinds, a local company with eighteen stores and three factories.  He started Rocky Mountain Shutters & Shades in 2003 when a friend in the industry suggested the Denver Market was not being well served with high quality service or products.  The company turned into a Family business when his daughter Kristen joined him in March 2005. Our goal is to provide excellent customer service and superior products at a fair price. Alan is intimately involved in all aspects of the business, filling in for sales and installation as needed (he is a Hunter Douglas Certified Master Installer) as well as completing many of the final measures.
