 “Winning makes it so much more fun, easier to engage and obviously to entertain clients, but also [it's important] to do it in the right way. The Broncos are a first-rate organization, very high-class organization, so it’s always great to partner up with somebody who are not only winners but also do things the right way.”~Hassan Salem, president of U.S. Bank Colorado at ‘A Night with the Coaches.’
