Hickenlooper replaces DOR head

By Charles Ashby

Gov. John Hickenlooper announced today that Barbara J. Brohl will be the executive director of the Colorado Department of Revenue.

Brohl served as corporate counsel for Qwest Corp. in Denver since 2003. She is an attorney and has more than 24 years in business.

Brohl worked at Qwest, and previously US West, since 1983. She handled all business and legal matters regarding large wholesale carriers, negotiating commercial transaction contracts and settlement agreements, resolving billing disputes, and customer service. She developed legal strategy and direction for the regulatory affairs of a 23 state territory.

As Executive Director, Brohl will be the principal officer for Colorado’s Tax Division and the Division of Motor Vehicles. Included under her umbrella of responsibility are the Divisions of Gaming, Tobacco and Alcoholic Beverages, Lottery, Racing, Hearings, and the recently added Division of Medical Marijuana.

She will oversee a department that has more than 1,500 employees and brings in more than $11 billion in fees and taxes for the state on an annual basis.

Brohl earned a bachelor’s degree from the Regis University of Colorado and a juris doctorate from University of Denver College of Law.

Brohl replaces Roxy Huber, who held the post through former Gov. Bill Ritter's four-year term. Huber stayed on to give Hickenlooper more time to fine a replacement.
